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!
It was a night to remember at the Accord Speedway.
Nearly 30 years later, the crown still fits. With a fine 3rd place effort, The Jeffer secured his 5th Accord Speedway Modified Track Championship and first since 1986…
The Schrufer Racing 2a was flawless all season long thanks to a tremendous group of people who made it all possible.
To cap off the night, Jeff Heotzler Jr. scored his very first modified win!
We can’t thank Mel and the entire Schrufer family for what has been an awesome 2 seasons together…
What a year (and its not over yet!)
The Jeffer and the Schrufer Racing 2a team had another strong performance on Friday at the Accord Speedway, finishing a close runner-up after starting the 30 lap feature from the 5th row.
With only 1 week left in the championship point chase, The Jeffer holds a 24 point advantage as he looks to capture his 5th Accord modified crown.
We hope to see you all next Friday at the “Big A” for Champion’s night!
The Jeffer continued to his consistent ways at the Accord Speedway on Friday night. He won his heat race in convincing fashion and later rolled off the starting grid for the 30 lap feature in 9th. He patiently clawed his way forward on the bottom of the race track, and with less than 5 to go, broke into the top 5. When it was all said and done, The Jeffer and the Academy Transmission 2a, took home a solid 4th place effort.
There are only 2 more point races left at Accord and The Jeffer remains in the lead. He will need to continue his consistency to secure his 5th Accord Speedway Championship.
See you next Friday!
The Jeffer continued to stay red hot, winning the 30 lap feature event at the Accord Speedway in dominating fashion. It is his 3rd win of 2015 on the 1/4 mile and 4th of the season in total.

Taking advantage of an upfront starting spot, The Jeffer torched the modified field at the Accord Speedway aboard the Academy Transmission 2a machine. It was his 2nd of the season at Accord and the 52nd of his career at the 1/2 mile bullring. The team looks to keep the momentum rolling next Friday night!
The Jeffer put on quite the show at i88 last night during the Short Track Super Series “Crazy 8s” special, driving a spectacular race aboard the Academy Transmissions 2a. He methodically picked off some of the best driver’s in the northeast as he worked from his 21st starting spot to roar into the top 5. On the final lap, The Jeffer was able to sneak inside and steal 3rd place in turns 1 and 2, completing his “Hard Charger” award winning effort.
The Schrufer Racing team did a heck of a job to fix an ill handling car from the heat race and transform it into one of the fastest cars on the track for the feature.
We’ll see you at the Accord Speedway tomorrow!
The Jeffer had a very fast Academy Transmissions 2a hot rod on Friday night at the Accord Speedway.
