The Jeffer Finishes 2nd in Wild Feature at Accord!
In one of the most exciting feature events in recent memory, The Jeffer and young-gun Anthony Perrego put on quite the driving display on Friday night at the Accord Speedway.
The Jeffer started on the inside of row 5 and quickly made early moves to enter the top 5 around lap 10.
The last 15 laps saw an epic battle between The Jeffer in the Academy Transmissions 2a and Perrego in the NYTP 55, as they sliced and diced, swapping 2nd place numerous times while at the same time, running down the leader.
With 5 laps to go, The Jeffer caught the leader and was ready to make his move.
The door was closed multiple times and with only 2 to go, The Jeffer had great position heading into turn one. He was squeezed by the leader who was trying to fend off his challenge and, at the same time, a lap car came into play coming off the corner. Meanwhile, Perrego was sitting in the catbird seat and was able to seize the opportunity and take the lead.
The yellow came out on the last lap, giving The Jeffer one last shot. He made the most of it and crossed-over the 2nd place driver coming out of turn 2 and completed the pass down the back stretch.
Regardless of coming up one spot short, it was a tremendous effort and a very exciting race for the fans.
Special Thanks to the Schrufer Racing team for their hard work and dialing in the car for the feature.
If Mother Nature cooperates, we’ll be at the Thunder Mountain Speedway tomorrow night (Sunday 7/12) for the Wade Decker Memorial 50 lapper!
