Heartbreak at Syracuse but Strong Finish at i88
Just as things started to look up at the Moody Mile, disaster struck in the triple 20 as driveshaft in The Jeffer’s 14h let go, ending his and the teams hopes of making the final 200 at the historic speedway. We thank everyone who made the trip a possibility. Although it still stings, we are thankful just to be apart of the event.
Later that night, The Jeffer headed to i88 Speedway to pilot the Schrufer Racing 2a in the final race in the Short Track Super Series. After winning the heat race, The Jeffer headed to the redraw, picking the 8th starting position. The Jeffer advanced into the top 5 early, however, he was involved in a tangle which sent him to the rear of the talented 26 car field. From then restart, The Jeffer put on a driving clinic, using the bottom lane to perfection, and with 5 laps to go was hot on the leaders tails. He was able to slip into 4th place on the final circuit and by doing so, captured 4th in the overall Short Track Super Series North Standings!
We’ll see you all at OCFS’s Eastern States Weekend!
