Inside Line Promotions – HIGHLANDS, Texas (Nov. 11, 2015) – Channin Tankersley captured multiple wins in 2015 for the fifth consecutive season.

Tankersley scored four trips to Victory Lane, highlighted by an ASCS Gulf South Region victory on June 26 at Heart O’ Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas.

“We unloaded and we were fast,” he said. “We may have made a few changes on the car from hot laps to the A Main, but we were relatively close to the same setup. It was one of those perfect nights you don’t get very often.”

That win was one of seven top-five finishes in 14 ASCS Gulf South Region features for Tankersley, who ended the season ranked third in the championship standings following a tough start to the year.

“Our goal at the beginning of the year was to get off to a clean start,” he said. “I knew if we could we’d have a great shot at backing up our championship from 2014. The first race didn’t go so great. Then we got caught up in back-to-back crashes and those really hurt us. After we got over that hurdle we started gaining momentum and then in the summer we had four second-place finishes and a win in eight races. I credit that on the hard work we put in during the week.”

Tankersley added a trio of mod lite feature victories to give him four triumphs and 12 top fives in 27 races. Those accomplishments were especially sweet for Tankersley, who was in the first year of owning his own team.

“Overall we had a fairly decent season,” he said. “We had a lot of highs and some lows. For the most part I can’t been too down on myself being the first year with this new team. We had a lot of good runs.

“I want to thank all of our partners, including Eric and Justin at Watercraft Plus, LLC. We had a lot of great sponsors who supported this team and I’m so grateful for all of them. Also, a big thanks to Bruce Griffith for the opportunity to drive for him at the end of the year.”
