Newsmaker of the Week // Tim Shaffer

There aren’t many $100,000-to-win races in the United States and to win one is to win big.

This past weekend at Mansfield (OH) Speedway, an incredible open competition 410 Sprint event took place for the first time. With mega bucks on the line, veteran driver Tim Shaffer rose to the occasion.

Shaffer has made a career of winning big races when it’s least expected. He won $150,000 in the 2010 Knoxville Nationals, one of the biggest upsets in Knoxville history.

He made big news then and he made big news again, though this one was no upset.

For winning $100,000 at Mansfield, Tim Shaffer is AARN’s Newsmaker For The Week Of Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
