This past weekend was a busy one racing with the USMTS Friday-Sunday. On Friday Jeremy was at Chateau Speedway where there were 42 Modifieds. He qualified 3rd in his group which put him in the invert. He started 2nd in their heat and took the lead right out of the gate but ended up losing the lead with 2 laps to go and finished 2nd. In the feature, Jeremy started 9th but pulled in at the halfway point due to the horrible track conditions.
On Saturday Jeremy was at Deer Creek Speedway and there were 52 modifieds. He qualified 4th in his group which again put him in the invert. Jeremy started 1st in his heat but at the start, he hit some slime and go freight trained and had to settle with 6th. In the B-main, he started 7th and moved into 4th after a few laps. At the halfway point, Jeremy began passing for 3rd but got ran over and broke his right front, which ended the night.
Sunday was at Winneshiek Raceway and there were 33 modifieds. Jeremy qualified 5th in his group. In the heat, he started 5th and worked his way up to 3rd but after making a couple of mistakes, he lost a position and finished 4th. In the B-main he started 1st and finished 2nd. For the feature, he started 14th and was running around that position before he got spun by another driver and was forced to go to the tail. Jeremy was able to recover and salvage a 13th place finish.
Overall it was a pretty good weekend. The team showed a lot of speed but if Jeremy could just eliminate the mistakes and the bad luck, he could have had a really successful one.
Up next Jeremy and the crew head south with the USMTS where he will be at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS for the $20k to win Grant Junghans Memorial on Friday and Saturday, he will be at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, MO for $10k to win.
