8th Place Finish For The Jeffer at RoC 5 Mile Pt. Event
At the end of a long day/night at the Five Mile Point Speedway, The Jeffer and his Academy Transmissions 2A Teo Pro Car survived all 100 laps and took home another top 10 finish, taking the checkered flag in 8th place. The day started out with a poor draw, #83, meaning that The Jeffer would start last (luckily 7th) in his heat race, having to advance to 4th to qualify for the 100 lap main event directly from his heat. After 2 laps, The Jeffer was in 5th, stalking the 4th place runner. With 3 to go, The Jeffer made his move and took the final transfer spot which ultimately lined him up to start 17th in the 100 lap main.
The first 50 laps of the race saw many cautions and took what seemed to be an eternity to complete. At that point, The Jeffer was just riding, content to stay around 12th position, waiting for the latter stages of the race to make a charge. At the halfway refueling break, The Jeffer sat in 11th position. When the next 50 laps started, The Jeffer picked off a few more cars and settled in to 8th position. For the remaining laps, 4-9th positions stayed nose to tail, unable to make a move on one another. Luckily, the 2A made it through the entire 100 laps unscathed and is ready to battle again this Friday at the Accord Speedway.
This is set to be a busy week for the Jeff Heotzler Racing team as The Jeffer is racing Friday at Accord (2a small block), Saturday at OCFS (14H big block) and wrapping up the weekend on Sunday at the Bridgeport Speedway for the RoC Series Doug Hoffman 60 Over Memorial (14H big block)!
