A night full of potential results ends with a somewhat disappointing finish for the Russell Jackson Racing Team.
After a routine session of hot laps, Russell was set to pull out 5th in the first heat race. He jumped to 4th quickly and chased the top three for the remaining caution free circuits.
Russell pulled out 8th in the 15 car field for the night’s feature event. In the opening 3 laps, Russell advanced to 7th and was fighting for 6th when a caution came out. After a few mistakes and constant battling for position, Russell fell back to tenth before crossing the finish line.
At the end of the night, Russell remarked, “We tried some new things tonight. Some worked and some definitely did not. I struggled bad on corner exit speed, but I believe I have a solution for next time. Yes, I am disappointed, but I know we learned tonight so that’s a success to me.”
Russell Jackson Racing is set to return back to action August 25th at I-30 Speedway.
