Jeremy Nelson goes to battle at Mississippi Thunder Speedway

This past weekend Jeremy started out racing the Karl Fenske Memorial at Mississippi Thunder Speedway on Thursday. There were 39 USRA modifieds in attendance. He started 1st in his heat and had a great battle for the lead before having to surrender that lead and settle for 2nd. In the feature, Jeremy started 11th and at the drop of the green, a car decided to use his car to help them make turn 1, which caused Jeremy to get knocked out of the groove and fall back to 18th. As the race continued he was able to battle his way back to a 14th place finish without any cautions.

On Friday Jeremy was back in action at Mississippi Thunder with the USMTS Modifieds where there were 38 Modifieds. He qualified 6th in his group. In the heat, he fell back to 9th from his 6th starting position which put him starting in the back of a B main, in which he ended up pulling off due to the engine overheating.

Saturday Jeremy followed the USMTS to Deer Creek Speedway where there were 44 Modifieds. He had a very poor showing in qualifying where he qualified last in his group. Jeremy has been trying something different on the car the past few weeks and he just has not had any speed with it. So before the heat race, he overhauled the car and put it back to the way it was earlier in the year. In the heat he went 9th to 5th, passing for 4th on the final lap but was not quite able to clear. This put him in the B main, where he started and finished 3rd and locked him into the main event. Jeremy started 17th in the feature but after a few laps, the RF shock mount broke out of the frame which ended the rest of his night and the rest of the weekend.

Jermy Nelson and the team prepare for the Fall Jamboree at Deer Creek Speedway on September 22-24 with the USMTS.
