CALIFORNIA, MISSOURI (July 20, 2014) – Jason and the forty one team were back at the track to complete three consecutive nights of racing. This time the Stenhouse Jr. Racing boys were back at Double-X Speedway in the Fischer Body Shop/Serratelli Hat Company Maxim to race in the 12th Annual Clyde Wood Memorial.
There were 27 cars ready to go at it to see who would stand atop the podium at the California, Missouri speed oval. Jason pushed out in the second 8-lap heat race aboard the Fischer Body Shop #41. When the green waved over the field, he pushed down on the accelerated and set sail. One thing about this track is the action is fast and furious and it certainly doesn’t take long for the laps to click down. The drivers are busy. So as a driver you have to get to work inside the cockpit right from the get go and put all your cards on the table. Jason did just that as he used his KSE Racing Products to steer his way around the quarter mile semi-banked oval. When the eighth circuit was done and the checkered flag flew, the Ragin’ Cajun followed the heat race winner, Brandon Hahn, across the finish line to take second.
For the 25-lap feature event, the Rocky Mount, Missouri resident lined the Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT)/ISC Racers Tape Maxim on the inside of row four beside Corey Nelson’s #34. After the field was set, and the green lights illuminated around the track, he stood on the gas and started making his way forward. Red hot Jonathan Cornell was also moving forward and got to the front first on lap 13 when early race leader, Josh Fisher, was collected by a spinning car on the track. The Cajun was close behind and was determined to put up a fight for the top spot. The two were in a cat and mouse chase with Cornell taking the win as Jason crossed the line close behind in the runner-up spot. The second place finish was the 4-time ASCS National champion’s 19th top five in the 2014 season, a 42.22% top five success rate.
