JASON MEYERS POSTS 43rd TOP FIVE FINISH

Orange County Fair Speedway- Middletown, New York Jason Meyers earned his second consecutive runner-up finish in New York this past week. Meyers started the night qualifying 7th earning him the 2nd starting position in his heat where Meyers easily coasted to victory. Following an impressive run to 4th place after starting 6th in the Crane Cams Dash Meyers started 4th in the nights A-feature. Meyers moved to 3rd on the start and then used the low line in turns 1 and 2 to take 2nd from Lucas Wolfe on lap 3, setting his sights on leader Terry McCarl. "Our race car was handling very well," noted Meyers. Meyers would chase down McCarl as they entered lapped traffic and the two raced side by side, but McCarl held on to the lead, capturing his first WoO victory of the 2008 season. "Anytime the leader is in traffic they tend to slow down a little bit. I thought I had a shot there, but the lapped cars really didn't hold him up much. To come from 6th to 4th in the dash and then 4th to 2nd in the feature, is still a great run. We worked on the car all night and made it better each time we touched the race track. You can't ask for much more than that. A second-place run is a respectable run for tonight's track."

"We still have our sights set on the championship, but we are struggling to get Mother Nature to play in our corner," commented Meyers.
