JASON MEYERS SETS NEW TRACK RECORD IN MINNESOTA

North Central Speedway- Brainerd, MN - Inaugural visits to a race track can present a challenge to some drivers. Jason Meyers and the Elite Racing team made their first appearance at North Central Speedway with hopes of earning a victory. Meyers started the night strong setting a new track record at 12.820 seconds and 93.510 mph putting him 1st amid a field of 25 competitors. Starting 4th in his heat race, Meyers was able to gain one position to post a 3rd place finish. Meyers' 3rd place finish in his heat would keep him out of the pill draw for the Crane Cams Dash, but still allowed him to make the dash through his qualifying time where he would finish in the 6th position.

Meyers, who started the night by setting a new track record in time trials en route to his 13th quick time honor of the season finished 8th for the night in the GLR Investments, DDNi, KPC Chassis.

Meyers piloted the GLR Investments, DDNi, KPC Chassis to a 2nd place finish earning him a spot in the Crane Cams dash where he finished 5th.
