Volusia Night #9

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 9:26 am

Rough luck. Team JHR and Halcomb racing were prepared to compete for the next four nights with the Late Model. Last night in Hotlaps/Qualifying the track was hammer down, Jon was entering turn three with a solid lap until he hit a little rut that pealed the left rear tire off the rim sending him sailing backwards into the turn four entrance and out of the race track. Jon was ok, the car suffered a bent rear clip that had unfortunately ended their week early.

Volusia Night #8

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:51 am

LM: Qualified 9th fastest in group one. Started 9th in heat one finished 9th. Started 11th in the B-main DNF.

Mod: Qualified fast time in group three. Started 4th in heat three finished 3rd. Started 15th in the A-main finished 8th.

Awesome week with the Mod! Team JHR and UNOH were able to start every feature and finish every race, very Impressive with 80 to 90 of the best Modified drivers in the country! Team JHR would like to give a big thanks to UNOH for this great opportunity!

Jon is still getting things worked out with the Late Model. Now that the Mod is done he’ll be able to focus more on it.

NOTE: Sherman, Hull, Anderson were unable to advance to the A-main.

Volusia Night #7

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 9:43 am

LM:
Qualified 8th fastest in group 6, started 8th in heat six finished 7th. Started 8th in the B-main finished 8th.

MOD:
Fastest qualifier in group #4, started 4th in heat four finished 2nd. Started 12th in the feature finished 13th.

Jon struggled a little bit with the transition from LM to Mod. He was able get more comfortable later in the night, but it seemed to hurt him in the mod feature.

NOTE:Hull and Anderson were unable to advance to the A-main. Sherman finished second in his heat and I believe finished around 15th in the A.
An exciting day! Team JHR and Halcomb Racing will be getting the Late Model out for the first of 6 six nights. Jon will be pulling double duty tonight!

Volusia Night #6

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:10 am

After an off night Team JHR was back in action. We finished 10th on Friday for the first qualifier race. That led us to a 11th place starting spot in todays B-main. Jon Finished 8th in the b-main and 16 cars transfered so that gave us a 16th place starting spot for the feature. In the A-main Jon was able to drive to a 12th place finish. Another Good night for Team JHR!

NOTE: Sherman, Hull, Anderson we unable to advance to the A-main. Sherman was in a transfer spot in the C-main until he got tangled with another driver and spun out. Jeff Badcock has blown his motor and is headed down the long road back to Ohio.

Volusia Night #5

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 11:41 am

Off night for Team JHR. The other half of the field that did not race on Friday will race tonight to try and qualify for Sundays $5,000 to win. Only the top four finishers from Friday and tonights races are automatically locked in to Sunday’s race. The rest of us have to transfer from a last chance qualifier race, but if we are not able to transfer from the B-main we are already locked into a provisonal spot by being second in points!

Volusia Night #4

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 1:44 pm

Jon Started 22nd in the A-main and was able to work his way up to a 10th place finish! Impressive comeback!

Jon would start last in the 2nd b-main and was quickly making his way to the front. Jon was spun out in turn 3 but never stopped on the track which would restart him in 4th. After another caution Jon was in 2nd and on lap 8 Jon took the lead to win the 2nd b-main. He will start 22nd in the feature.

Jon was running 4th when he received some contact from another car that resulted in a flat tire two laps later and Jon was unable to return to the field.

Jon got stuck behind a slower car in qualifying and couldn’t get a good lap in. He was the 5th fastest qualifier so he will be starting 5th in the 4th heat.

After last night’s feature Jon moved from 3rd to 2nd in the points. Even though Jon is 2nd and tonight the odd number in points are to run, ALL 4 UNOH CARS WILL RUN TONIGHT!!!!

Volusia Night #3

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 6:32 pm

Jon started the feature in the 25th position. He was up to 15th place at lap 7 when a wreck occured right in front of him giving him no where to go. He was able to continue after coming into the pits and checking over the damages. Jon was able to return to the rear of the field and manage a 17th place finish with a bent up racecar.

NOTE: Hull, Sherman, Anderson, and Babcock had a tough break and did not advance to the A-main.

Jon led start to finish to win the 1st b-main and will start the feature in 25th position.
Jon will start on the pole of the 1st b-main.
Jon started 4th and finished 4th and will have to run a B-Main to advance to the feature.
Jon was the fastest qualifier in group 1 and will start 4th in the 1st heat. There are 88 Modifieds in attendance.

Volusia Night #2

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 11:39 am

Team JHR drew a 7th place starting position for Night #2 at Volusia. Moving up to 5th after a couple of laps it was pretty much follow the leader the rest of the way and Jon would cross the finish line in 5th.

Note: Hull, Anderson and Babcock were not able to advance from the b-main. Sherman was in a few early accidents in the feature but was still able to finish.

Heat #2 is in the books and Team JHR took the checkered flag.

There are 83 Modifieds in attendance tonight and Team JHR qualified 4th fastest in group 2 and will start on the pole of the 2nd heat.

At the track getting the car ready with hopes of it being another great night of racing.

Volusia Night #1

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 4:21 pm

Team JHR making the Night #1 feature at Volusia would be starting in the 8th position. There were 2 cautions early with Team JHR barely missing the second one, which was a 12 car pile up. After restarting in 5th Team JHR drove their way up to 3rd and held off a fierce field.

NOTE: Hull, Sherman, Babcock, and Anderson were all in the third B-main and only the winning car would advance. Babcock had a nice lead but he bobbled in 3 and 4 and lost the lead. Neither teams were able to advance to the A-main.

The modified heats are in the books and from the drop of the green flag in heat #8 Team JHR took the lead on the first lap and never looked back until taking the checkered flag.

Qualifying came to an end and Team JHR was 2nd fastest in group 8 and will be starting 3rd in heat #8. Top 3 will transfer.

NOTE: Hull will start on the pole of the 5th heat with Babcock starting 5th and Sherman starting 7th. Anderson will be starting 8th in the 6th heat.

After months of preparation Team JHR and the UNOH Racers are ready to hit the dirt for night #1 at Volusia Speedway Park. As of right now there are about 70 Modifieds in attendance. We will be keeping you updated throughout tonight’s racing action.
