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.
When the green flag dropped, The Jeffer was on the move and when he grabbed the lead, he checked out, finishing nearly 1/2 track ahead of the 2nd place competitor.
The win was The Jeffer’s first of the year at Accord and his 51st of his career at the 1/4 mile bullring.
The Jeffer will be making an appearance at the Five Mile Point Speedway this Tuesday for the Super DIRTCar Series event. The team will be utilizing the Roberts Racing 14h Big Block Modified.

We’ll see you at Accord on Friday!
On Friday night, The Jeffer continued his early season success at the Ulster County Bullring in Accord, driving the Academy Transmissions 2a to a 3rd place finish. The Jeffer had a shot at stealing the win but his late race heroics were denied by a lap car who happened to take the same lane as the 2a was performing a 3 wide pass for the lead. Jeff Jr., who was making his 2nd start of the year at Accord, registered a 7th place finish to back up his 6th place effort last week.
Due to engine issues that plagued the 14h at Bridgeport last weekend, The Jeffer was forced to pilot Jeff Jr’s 14h small block modified at OCFS. In the feature, The Jeffer escaped serious damage in a multi-car pile up in the opening laps, and after a quick visit to the pits, was able to rejoin the tail end of the field. Restarting 15th, The Jeffer started to make his move and as the laps ticked on, the Roberts Racing small block modified was picking its way through the field. During the last 5 laps, The Jeffer was able to pass 3 cars, scoring an impressive 6th place finish.
As of right now, the big block power plant is on schedule to be completed in the next couple of days and if all goes well, will be back in the 14h in time for OCFS’s Nostalgia Night on Saturday!
The Jeffer had a pair of very fast cars over the weekend. The Academy Transmissions 2a was the best it has been all season at Accord on Friday night, however, made an early exit in the feature after making contact with the boiler plate off of turn 2 trying to complete a 3 wide maneuver.
On Saturday, The Jeffer won his heat race after an intense final lap battle, and was set to start on the outside pole (thanks to the “heads up” format) but the rains came and forced the cancellation of the 30 lap OCFS feature event. The feature will be made up at a date TBA.
Next up is the Short Track Super Series event at the Accord Speedway on Tuesday!
The Jeffer had a solid weekend of racing, scoring a 2nd place finish in the Academy Transmissions 2a at the Accord Speedway on Friday night and a 10th place effort at OCFS on Saturday in the Array of Monograms sponsored 14h.
Passing was at a premium at both speedways but The Jeffer did what he had to do in the heat races to put himself in a position to be towards the front at the end of the night.
We’ll be back at it again this weekend at Accord and OCFS so come on out and support both facilities!
For the 49th time in a big block modified and the 70th time total, The Jeffer pulled into victory lane at the Orange County Fair Speedway on Saturday night aboard the Roberts Racing 14H.
Taking advantage of his front row starting position thanks to the tough luck the weekend before, The Jeffer led every lap of the 30 lap feature event and cruised to the checkered flag.

On Friday night, The Jeffer had an impressive run at the Accord Speedway, driving the Mel Schrufer owned, Academy Transmission 2a from 12th to a solid 5th place finish.
The 2a team will travel to the Big Diamond Speedway for the Short Track Super Series event, marking the first time The Jeffer will compete at the Pennsylvania track.
Special thanks to our great car owners, crew, and sponsors for making it possible to experience weekends like this!
On Saturday night at OCFS our night ended very prematurely as The Jeffer wasn’t even able to make it to the 2nd turn on the 1st lap of the heat race without being taken out. The contact was significant enough that it severely bent the rear end.
Friday night, however, The Jeffer brought the Schrufer Racing 2a home in 4th place at the Accord Speedway. The racing over the first 2 weeks at Accord has been tough, as the track conditions are making it very hard to pass. Hopefully things turn around and the track is back to it’s “racey” self in the coming weeks.
