Tinkle Family Racing will be debuting a Hawaiian-themed paint scheme during the World Stock Car Festival at Winchester Speedway in the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman series. Zachary Tinkle was guaranteed in the 2019 Chase for the Championship with his win at Mt. Lawn Speedway in June and had a special ‘photo bomber’ in their victory lane photos. This anonymous fan has been named by the team “Hawaiian Stan” because of the Hawaiian shirt he was wearing in the photo.
The team has had a lot of fun as a result of the photo bombing. Cards were made and given to all team members with the picture on it, the photo was photoshopped for a team member that didn’t make it to the Mt. Lawn race, and they bought a Hawaiian shirt that they had someone wear in a later victory lane photo.
In addition to the floral Hawaiian paint scheme, the team will have matching Hawaiian team shirts. Tinkle Family racing would welcome any information leading to finding out who the anonymous ‘Hawaiian Stan’ is so they can gift him one of these Hawaiian team shirts. Fans that would like to purchase one of these shirts can find them in the Shop under Apparel on ZacharyTinkle.com.
Zachary Tinkle remarked, “With all the fun we’ve had, we’d like to find out who our fan Hawaiian Stan really is so that he knows we’re recognizing and appreciate him. It’s one of those things that’s helped us bond as a team. I also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge all the hard work that my team has put in this year to get me to this point. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
Since the Chase is also starting during Labor Day weekend, Tinkle Family Racing is honoring the team members that have worked tirelessly all season to get Zachary in the running for the Championship. All Zachary Tinkle 2019 crew members will be listed on the back of the car.
Specialty Grafix Sign & Graphics Company out of Terre Haute, Indiana will be installing the graphics. Their motto is “Dominating the Bull Ring.”
