CONCORD, NORTH CAROLINA (November 8, 2015) – After rain washed out Saturday’s finale of The World Finals at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, Jason and the JJR crew were back at the track on Sunday afternoon to button up their inaugural season with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series aboard the Priority Aviation Services, LLC/Fischer Body Shop #41 Maxim.
The first order of business was to run the heat races around the 4/10 mile oval. Jason would roll out in the second heat race and line up on the outside of row three with Dave Blaney to his inside. Stevie Smith and Sheldon Haudenschild were on row one with Brad Sweet and Paige Polyak right behind. When the green flag was unfurled, the 410 engines came to a roar as the field creamed into turn one. Jason was up on the wheel and moved into the fifth spot. He kept the pressure on the accelerator and started to pursue the next competitor. He got the fourth spot and closed in on Brad Sweet before running out of laps and missing a transfer position by one spot.
Forced to run the C-Main, he started from the third starting position with Dylan Cisney to his outside and Rico Abreu on the pole. When the green flag waved, Abreu was off and running with the field in tow. When the checkered flag flew, Jason crossed under the checkers in the fourth position in the Jonestown KOA/K&N Filters #41.
Using a provisional, he put the JJR Maxim Racing entry into the 30 lap A-Main where he would start on the outside of row thirteen in the twenty sixth starting spot. Polesitter, Joey Saldana, would bring the field up to speed on lap one as Jason went to work navigating around the rubber down surface at speed. Some early race cautions slowed the high speed action and regrouped the field, as Jason picked up a few positions. Saldana again would lead the field at speed using the high side around the track as Jason raced his race. Saldana would take the season-ending victory as Jason salvaged a 23rd place finish to cap off his inaugural season with the World of Outlaws.
The JJR entry made 96.2% of the WoO A-Mains in their first season and had seven (7) top five finishes and twenty five (25) top ten finishes during the year. The inaugural season was highlighted by Jason’s runner up finish in the 32nd Annual Kings Royal in July at Eldora Speedway.
