Russell Jackson Racing had a strong weekend overall and continues to gain speed!
Russell started out pulling the number 7 chip which put him starting on the inside of the second row for the heat. Hot laps went off without issue and the car looked good!
Rolling off 3rd, Russell avoided an incident in turn 3 on just the second lap of the heat race and fell back to 6th. After the restart, he was able to charge back to the 4th position where he finished.
The #17R Team Woody’s Racecar was set to start 4th in the feature and immediately took 3rd upon the start. After 3 cautions, Russell was able to hold on for his first podium of the year!
After the race, Russell was quoted saying, “The Team Woody’s car is getting faster each week and tonight has really got me excited for the $1,000 to win show next week!”
The Russell Jackson Racing team will continue action May 19th at I-30 Speedway in the Race for Chase.
