Fremont Speedway-First win of the season!

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 6:04 pm

May, 30th-Fremont Speedway (Fremont OH), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event, 21 cars were in attendance. I drew a number three which gave me a pole starting position in heat race number two. The heat race went green to checker and I led every lap for the win. I redrew the number one starting spot for the feature and everything was just going my way! After 30 laps with about a hand full of cautions I was able to maintain my lead and take home our first late model feature victory of the season! It feels great to get the first win out of the way. We still have a long season ahead of us and I hope we can continue our success. I would like to give a special thanks to Shane and Jennifer Halcomb, UNOH, JEGS, Professional Drywall, Wide Open Graphics, Rocket Chassis, and DRR.

Hartford Speedway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 7:09 pm

May, 29th-Hartford Speedway (Hartford MI), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event, 31 cars were in attendance. Qualified 4th fastest in group number two. It took awhile to get our heat race started due to cautions. On the second caution I was rolling down the front stretch and a guy in the back evidently didn’t see or hear the caution and ran over my right front tire. When we went back green I had a bad vibration and pulled in. We took our provisional and would start 23rd in the feature. 40 laps around this big half mile was some good seat time. I rode around in the back for awhile until I got comfortable. Once my tires got warm I started rolling to the front. A couple long cautions cooled my tires down and I couldn’t get them back. I was in the top ten but faded back to a 12th place finish. Tonight we’ll be at Fremont Speedway with the ALMS.

Eldora Speedway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:43 am

May, 24th-Eldora Speedway (Rossburg OH), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event, 45 cars were in attendance. I qualified 6th fastest in group number one which did not start my night off the greatest. I had a decent start in the heat and was up to 4th until lap three when I was trying to pass the 2nd and 3rd place cars. I got a little high coming out of turn two catching the wall with my right rear quarter panel. When I checked up the car behind me didn’t have time to react and caught my driver’s door sending me back into the wall. Luckily there was no major damage and since I’m leading the ALMS point standings I got to use a provisional to start the feature. I started 21st in the feature and with a caution free race I was only able to make it to a 15th place finish. One of those night you just take what you can get and move on. Upcoming Races: ALMS Friday 5/29 Hartford Speedway, ALMS Saturday 5/30 Fremont Speedway.

Oakshade Raceway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 8:28 pm

May, 23rd-Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon OH), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event, 50 cars were in attendance. I drew a 25 which gave me a 3rd place starting spot in the 4th heat race. After the first couple laps I was able to grab the lead and maintained for the heat race win. I redrew a number three starting spot for the feature. Tire selection played into a little more of a factor for the feature. One thing I still need to learn is how to race on harder tires. I struggled on the initial start but was fortunate for the caution to get another chance at it. Another caution occurred and we then had to go to a third restart. But third time was the charm and I got a good start. I cruised around in 3rd for awhile until lap traffic played into factor. I was able to grab the second spot and started to close in on the leader until we ran out of laps. A 2nd place finish is nothing to complain about, made some mistakes but learned a lot and still came home with a solid finish. Congrats Casey Noonan for his feature win. Tonight we will be at the Big E Eldora Speedway to complete our triple header this weekend with the ALMS.

Mt. Pleasant Speedway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 7:15 pm

May, 22nd-Mt Pleasant Speedway (Mt Pleasant MI), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event, 42 cars were in attendance. I was the second driver to qualify and turned a 14.9 which gave me the pole position in the first heat. I led every lap for the heat race win and redrew a number two starting spot for the feature. It was my first time ever at this speedway, and in the heat races it was a lot of follow the leader but in the feature it was a pretty racey track. The track officials laid a lot of water on the track before the feature which made for an interesting start. When the green flag waved I got sandwiched on the outside which cut my left front tire down. I knew it was flat but as long as I was racing it didn’t hurt me to bad. I was able to hang on and pull off a 3rd place finish. I thought we might have had a car to win but in that situation you take what you can get. Congrats Ky Harper for his feature win. Next race is tomorrow at Oakshade Raceway and then Sunday at Eldora Speedway.

Attica Raceway Park-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 7:29 pm

May, 15th-Attica Raceway Park (Attica OH), 27 cars were in attendance. I drew a number two which give me the pole position in the first heat race. I grabbed the quick lead and led every lap for the heat race win. On the redraw lucky number 7 was where I’d began in the feature. We had a slow start as three initially starts were bought back due to cautions. Once we went racing it was a tight battle to the front. I used the very bottom of the race track to find my way through the field. After 25 laps 2nd place was where I’d finish. Can’t complain at all, we have been having good finishes and keeping the car in one piece. Congrats to Rusty Schlenk on his win. We will be at Oakshade raceway tonight!

Oakshade Raceway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 11:19 am

May, 9th-Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon OH), 50 cars were in attendance. I drew a 36 which give me a 5th place starting spot in the third heat race. After ten laps I was able to hold on to a 3rd place finish for the final transfer spot. I had a long way to go as I had to start 15th in the feature. When the green flag waved I was on a mission to the front and by the half way mark I had already advanced 13 positions! After a brief caution and racing resumed I was battling for the lead with only eight laps to go. I was able to get underneath the leader until I spun my tires causing them to seal up. For the remainder of the race I held my position and still managed to come home with a solid 3rd place finish. Lesson learned: slower is most of the time faster and overdriving the racecar kills your tires :) Shane made some adjustments to the racecar that really gave us what we needed for the feature. Upcoming races: Friday May 15th Attica Raceway Park, Saturday May 16th Oakshade Raceway.

Attica Raceway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 7:54 pm

May, 8th-Attica Raceway Park (Attica OH), 32 cars were in attendance. I drew a 32 which give me a 5th place starting spot in the first heat race. Due to all the rain the track was very heavy and tacky which eventually got rough. In the heat race I was able to bounce my way to a 2nd place finish. I redrew a number four starting position for the feature and let’s just say it was rough from the start. Was running 5th when I went off the race track going in to turn one causing a caution which sent me to the tail. After a long rough ride I was able to come across the line in 8th only to find out I was scored 12th. Not the best of nights but the car and driver need to be able to adjust in all conditions, just takes time. Headed to Oakshade Raceway tonight.

Oakshade Raceway-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 5:58 pm

May, 2nd-Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon OH), 50 cars were in attendance. I drew a 53 which give me an 8th place starting spot in the second heat race. I had a good start and was able to get to 4th quickly and after two more laps I was already battling with the leader. We had a quick caution and when racing resumed I grabbed the lead and took the heat race win. I redrew a number five starting position for the feature. The track was pretty rough in one and two causing a lot of drivers to have problems. I didn’t get a very good start and fell back a few spots. After a caution I went into turn one hit a rut and lost control of the steering wheel causing me to lose even more spots. Went back to 13th or so and worked my way back up to an 8th place finish. These Late Models react so quickly that it makes it difficult when racing on a rough race track. But it’s just another experience I will learn from. I am very excited for this coming week as we are back at my home track Limaland Motorsports Park with the Late Model and the Mod. Then on Saturday we will be back at Oakshade Raceway.
