After a 3 week hiatus due to the Hoosier tire shortage, Jeremy was back racing this past weekend with the Advantage RV Mod tour for the Championship Swing. On Friday they were at I-94 Sure Step Speedway where there were 28 Modifieds in attendance. Jeremy started 4th in his heat and finished 2nd. This put them in the redraw where they drew 8 out of 8 so that is where they rolled off for the 40 lap feature. At the wave of the green, Jeremy began his move to the front. Around the halfway point, he found himself in the 3rd place position and began to run down the leaders when the caution came out with a few laps to go. At the restart, they were unable to get by the leaders and had to settle for 3rd.
On Saturday Jeremy was at Miller Central Speedway in Miller, SD, where there were 25 Modifieds. He started 4th in his heat and finished 3rd. They were again in the redraw and drew 7 out of 9. They had a great start in the feature but his momentum was stopped when a competitor’s oil pan got a hole in it causing them to leave an oil trail around the bottom of the speedway. Because of this, the track turned into a one lane race track for the remainder of the race but they were still able to rally to a 4th place finish.
Sunday was the final night of the Tour and it was at Casino Speedway in Watertown, SD. There were 27 Modifieds on hand. Jeremy started 1st in his heat and finished 2nd. Jeremy made the redraw and finally drew a good number, the 4. The track for the feature was far from ideal. It was very muddy and hard to pass so he went into survival mode, not wanting to destroy the car. He did fall back to 11th the first half of the race but they were able to stay out of trouble and salvage a 5th place finish.
With the weekend results, they were able to finish the tour 3rd in the points. Other than his 2 DNFs on the tour, Jeremy had an average finish of 5, which would have given them the championship, but that is how racing goes sometimes.
Jeremy’s racing schedule for the rest of the year is unclear at the moment due to the tire shortage. He currently is not going to be racing this weekend but hopes to be back on track when the invitational season begins when he gets more tires.
