A season full of struggle has a rewarding finish!
The Russell Jackson Racing Team Woodys #17R competed in 15 events this season!
Placing top 10 in 11 of the 15 events with 4 DNFs due to accidents and some engine trouble was a respectable effort for a season filled with adversity. 5 Top 5’s also resulted from the endless work put forward by the team. These results ended in a 2nd place finish for points at I-30 Speedway that came down to the last race!
Reflecting on the season, Russell said, “I am quite pleased with the end result considering what we faced. Once we figured out our new car, we were really seeing some speed. I’ve learned a bunch this year, and driving a Team Woodys house car has been a great experience. I can’t thank our partners enough for all they do to keep us going throughout the season.”
Russell Jackson Racing would like to thank Superior Bearing for keeping us rolling freely at every race, Racers Wax for keeping our equipment looking brand new on and off the track, Superior Steering Wheels for their indestructibility, Everything 600 & Doug Reynolds Suzuki for helping us with all our parts needs, and Beebe’s Burgers for being the best place to eat no matter the day! Huge thanks to Lock-Wood Electric, Premium Siding Supply, Plant Services, Readnour Construction, and I-40 Transmission for helping us in a variety of areas throughout the year as well!
Lastly, we would like to thank the fans that supported us throughout the year and consistently encouraged us in our efforts. Without you guys, this team would not be what it is, and we are thankful for each of you!
Russell Jackson Racing is uncertain about their plans for 2019 but will announce as soon as they are set.
