JACKSONVILLE, ILLINOIS (May 23, 2014) – On the first night of the Memorial Day weekend, Jason and the Stenhouse Jr. Racing crew put their Don Ott 410 Racing Engine under the hood and headed to Jacksonville Speedway to race against the MOWA competitors. Jacksonville Speedway is a racy little quarter mile, semi banked oval nestled in Morgan County just off I-72 on the west side of town. The town of Jacksonville was named in 1825 for future president Andrew Jackson, the commander of American forces at the Battle of New Orleans (1815) and presidential hopeful in 1824. Jacksonville was a major stopping point on the historic Underground Railroad. Jason and the team were glad they stopped here to race with the MOWA competitors on this night and were looking to put on an impressive show. Eager to stand on the gas, he wasted little time as he powered down on the loud pedal in the Waco Metals/Winters Performance #41 from the outside front row in his heat race to seize the lead. The Eunice, Louisiana native would not look back as he took the win in the qualifying race to advance to the evening’s feature event. When the feature lineup was set, the Louisiana chauffeur was going to get going from the inside of row two from his third starting spot. Philip and the crew went over the car and made all of the final adjustments so when the field went green the Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT)/CURB Records speed machine would be a force to be reckoned with throughout the 25-lap event. Pole sitter A.J. Bruns paced the field and brought them to the green flag. Bruns led the field into turn one as Jason looped the car entering the turn and had to tag the field from the rear. Restarting twentieth meant it was show time . . . Cajun Style. When the yellow lights changed and illuminated to green, he stood on the fast pedal from the comfort of his ButlerBuilt Professional Seat System and started his charge forward. He was relentless as he drove his way through the field with his sights set further front at all times. With each passing lap he made moves around the speedway advancing into the top ten. He would continue that charge and when the black and white cloth flew over the field, the Louisiana driver recovered from his early race diversion to capture a fifth place finish. It certainly was an impressive recovery and charge forward that resulted in a very respectable finish against the always consistent and fast MOWA competitors.
