MOBERLY, MISSOURI (August 31, 2014) – Jason and the Stenhouse Jr. Racing boys loaded up after the 36th Annual Jackson Nationals on Saturday night and headed seven hours south to Moberly, Missouri to race at Randolph County Raceway in ASCS Warrior Region competition on Sunday night. There were 25 cars in the pit area and everyone was there for the same reason – to win. The Rocky Mount, Missouri resident that chauffeurs the Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT)/AccuDoc Solutions #41 Maxim was eager to get back on the track in his Ford blue oval powered Maxim.
He did not need to wait long as he was slated to start from the third position in the first eight lap heat race behind the front row starters. Tasker Phillips wasted little time jumping into the lead position with the Cajun Sensation close behind aboard the Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT) machine. When the flagman unfurled the checkered flag, Phillips took the win followed closely by the Cajun Sensation with Austin Alumbaugh, Vincent Ward, and Dean Hathman rounding out the top five.
When all of the heat races were completed, the lineup for the field of 25 cars was set for the 25-lap feature event. Jason would be starting from the inside of row five, from the ninth starting position, in The Shop Diesel Service/Lee Components Maxim. The stands were packed full of fans ready to see some wheel-to-wheel racing action as the drivers secured themselves into the cockpits of their speed machines. Jason buckled himself into his ButlerBuilt Professional Seat System as he tightened his Crow Enterprizes safety belts. He quietly peered through the shield of his Arai Helmet as he readied himself for some high speed action around Randolph County Raceway. With a small bump on the rear nerf bar, the push truck pushed him off as his engine fired and he rolled onto the racing surface.
When the racing action was at full speed, always tough ASCS Warrior competitor Jonathan Cornell was showing the field around the big oval. But not too far behind there were two big guns making some noise as they clawed their way through the field after starting mid pack. Those two drivers were Brian Brown from the thirteenth starting spot and Jason Johnson from the ninth starting spot in the Fischer Body Shop/www.racediecast.com Maxim. Using the high side of the racing surface to keep their momentum up they were both on the move. Cornell was still leading, but by lap sixteen the two invaders were in the mix with Brown stealing the lead. While the drivers were up on the wheel inside their cockpits putting on a high speed show as they flung the dust around each and every turn, the fans were up in their seats too as these three drivers were putting on one heck of a show as they were cleanly battling wheel-to-wheel every lap for position. When the checkered flag waved, Brown crossed the stripe first to take the win as the Cajun Sensation chased him across the pay stripe in second place with Cornell taking the show position. It was an incredible race between the three terrific wheelmen. For a track whose slogan says they are known for “Saturday Night Racing, Dirt Track Style”, they sure put on a terrific show on Sunday night, too! What a great place to race, both for the drivers and the fans. The night certainly ended in a great run for the forty one!
