Lebanon, Missouri – After a week away from the track, Tony Jackson Jr. made a triumphant return to the seat of his #56 TJR Motorsports/RLB Financial/Cornett powered Rocket Super Late Model. The team entered the James House Memorial at Caney Valley Speedway (Caney, Kansas), which saw Tony visit MARS DIRTcar Series Victory Lane for the first time this season.
The current and defending MARS Champion went into battle against a strong field of twenty-six entries at the 1/4 mile oval. Having used a heat race win to lock into the finale, Jackson Jr. charged to the lead by lap 11 and survived contact with Chance Bishop, which left damage to the nosepiece on his machine, to score the $3,066 payday. Bishop finished second followed by Justin Asplin, Brandon McCormick, and Cole Wells rounding out the top five finishers. The win marked Tony’s fourth of the 2014 season.
“Things got a little wild there with Chance, but luckily the damage didn’t hamper us too bad, and we were able to get the win,” said Jackson Jr. “It seems like we are getting better with this new car every time we hit the track.” Tony continues to lead the latest MARS DIRTcar Series standings. Full results from the event and the latest series’ standings are available at www.MARSRacingSeries.com.
The upcoming weekend, August 8th-9th, will take Tony and the team to Junction Motor Speedway (McCool Junction, Nebraska) for the 11th Annual King of the Hill event. The program will see the MARS, Lucas Oil MLRA, and NCRA Late Model tours all sanctioning the program. On Friday night a $2,000 top prize is on the line, while Saturday’s festivities will be headlined by a $3,000-to-win event. For more information on the event, please visit www.MARSRacingSeries.com .
