When Maddox Tanzillo, came into the 2019 season he wrote down a goal for the season on a piece of paper, win another Jr. Thunder championship. He completed that goal in a dominating fashion.
Maddox started the season with a win as he parked his car in the winner’s circle with his brothers. He then went on a complete terror for the rest of the season in the Jr. Thunder class. Maddox captured 5 wins and 2 runner-ups in only 10 races helping the young racer win the championship by 77 points.
“This season was great for me. I was able to defend my Jr. Thunder championship in such a competitive class of racers and I’m very proud of that. I also had a lot of help this year from my Mom, Dad, brothers and sister, they have been there supporting me the whole time. Also, I want to thank Clay Brown for helping me in the staging lanes this year,”
Next season Maddox is moving up to Jr. Lightning and will be going head to head with his older brother Logan Cook as they battle it out for family dominance.
Congrats to Maddox Tanzillo the 2019 JEGS.com Jr. Thunder Champion!
