Week 25 Results

Kankakee County Speedway, Kankakee, IL (09/16/2011) 17 Late Models. Qualified 4th quick overall. Started 5th in the first heat race finished 3rd. Started 3rd in the feature finished 4th. We struggled with the racecar most of the night and just really never had the car good enough for race trim. I ran second to Ryan Unzicker the entire race until fading back to 4th on the final lap.

Lasalle Speedway, Lasalle, IL (09/17/2011) 18 Late Models. Qualified 4th quick overall with a time of 13.1. Started 2nd in the second heat race finished 2nd. Started 4th in the feature finished 3rd. Heavy wet track conditions made for an interesting event. A lot of fast pace bumpin’ and bangin’ as I tried maintain a good finish. Still seemed to struggle with the handling of the racecar but for our first time at Lasalle a 3rd place finish was great.

JHR Makes World 100

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 4:54 pm

Eldora Speedway, Rossburg, OH (09/09/2011, 09/10/2011) 112 Late Models. Qualified a time of 15.79 which put me starting 7th in the sixth heat race. I had my work cut out for me but I knew being in the sixth heat race had the best odds for some good passing. I was optimistic with the racecar as we made a lot of changes after qualifying and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. We went green in the 15 lap heat race and right out the gun I knew we had a good racecar! I quickly jumped up to 4th after a few cautions and maintain that position for several laps. With only five laps to go I made a hard charge for the third and final transfer position. With heated pressure from Eddie Carrier Jr. and trying to work under the “Million Dollar Man” Donnie Moran, it was no easy task. With only two laps to go, Moran got up into the wall but Carrier slipped past me down the back stretch and stole that critical third spot. White flag waved and I was side by side with Carrier. Chris Madden first, Dustin Neat second, both quickly faded back to us in lap traffic. I did a big slide job in turn two and was able I clear Neat and Carrier for second. Carrier once again drove around the outside of me. With only turn three and four left do I block the slide job from Neat or take the momentum at the top? I hauled into turn three hard at the top and there was no sign of Neat. Checkered flag waved! We did it! we finished third and just made our first WORLD 100!

Mission Accomplished! Started 18th in the 100 lap feature. Battling with some the best in the business. I worked my way up to 14th until folding my nose under on lap 48. Was racing hard with Josh Richards when I caught the cushion wrong coming out of turn two causing my car to push to the wall. I was unable to continue and the result was a 22nd DNF. Although no signs of disappointment as we just made the greatest dirt race in the country!

Week 23 Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 7:36 am

Hartford Motor Speedway Hartford, MI (09/02/2011) 15 Late Models. Started 2nd in the first heat race finished 1st. Started 2nd in the feature finished 2nd. Lead up to lap 16 and was passed with four laps to go in lap traffic by JR Hotovy. My racecar started to get really tight entering the corners and hard to get traction off the corners. When I got into lap traffic it made things even more difficult. I was running the top most of the race and I could tell it was starting to slow down but I just didn’t get down to the bottom quick enough. We’ll definitely take 2nd. We have a lot of racing ahead of us this weekend so this is a great start!

Attica Raceway Park, Attica, OH (09/03/2011) 34 Late Models. Oakshade Raceway cancelled around 5:30 pm so we had just enough time to catch the heat race at Attica. Started 7th in the heat race and by lap three I took the lead and was rolling down the backstretch when my oil pump bolt broke causing my motor to loss oil pressure. We were unable to get the pump fixed in time for the b-main and didn’t want rush it just in case the motor was hurt.

Jon

Eldora Speedway, Rossburg, OH (09/04/2011) American Late Model Series Event. 30 Late Models. After last night we were able to fix the pump and everything checked out ok with the motor. Qualified fast time in group four with a 16.0 and that put me starting 4th in the fourth heat race. When the heat race went green I quickly made my way to the front taking the lead on lap two. I rolled into turn three on lap five when the water pump decided to snap in two destroying my radiator and fan causing me to come to a stop. One thing after another but we were able to get everything fixed and would start 30th in the 3 wide starting event. A long battle to the front but with only five laps to go I had worked my way up to 8th all to fall apart after I packed my right rear tire full of mud from the brutal cushion. The vibration was to bad to continue but while trying to get off the track I was catch up in a tangle tearing the car up more creating another awful Eldora experience.

A long week ahead as were trying to get a new motor and car together for the World 100.
