CONSISTENCY IS KEY FOR MEYERS IN 2010
As many of us learned from the children's story the Tortoise and the Hare, slow and steady wins the race. While being slow and steady may not necessarily win a World of Outlaws race, it does help when it comes to the point standings. So far in 2010 Jason Meyers and his Elite Racing team have been the most consistent team on the World of Outlaws tour, recording three victories and averaging a 4.22 finish over the first nine races of 2010. They are also the only race team that has finished in the top-ten in every race so far this season and leads the series in wins with three visits to victory lane.
In 2010, Meyers began his season quietly in his #14 GLR Investments KPC at Volusia Speedway with a fourth and sixth place finish. It was at Las Vegas that Meyers began turning heads as he won a thrilling race at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After starting eighteenth, Meyers went on to lead the last two laps and win by just a 0.237 margin.
At Tulare, Meyers continued his success recording his second victory of the season and leading all 35-laps of the event in front of a hometown crowd. On the second night of racing in California, Meyers recorded his third top-five finish in just four races. As the series moved on to the Lonestar State, Meyers kept his consistency going with a fourth place and tenth place finish at Houston Raceway Park.
In the last two events at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, Meyers and his Elite Racing squad may have started the weekend out slow, recording a seventh place finish, but everything would turn around on night two. On the second night of competition, Meyers grabbed the lead in the main event on lap 14 and went on to record his third victory of the season.
"We are very confident now," Meyers expressed. "We have a great race car and that has shown in our consistent runs so far this season. My guys are working really hard and we have our eye on the championship. All we have to do is keep being consistent like we are now. The team has been working really hard over this off week and has been doing some testing on a few things we have been working on, so that we will be ready for the next stretch of races. I'm really looking forward to this summer and the rest of the season."
Two Away - After recording his 38th career victory at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, Meyers is just two victories away from becoming the 12th driver in World of Outlaws history to accomplish this feat.
Point Perfection - The last time Meyers lead the point standings with Elite Racing was after winning at Lernerville Speedway in May of 2008. After four victories to begin the season, Meyers held the top spot in the point standings throughout the rest of the month of May.
Lucky Number Four - Jason Meyers is the fourth driver in 2010 to hold the points lead.
Leading After Nine - In the past ten years of World of Outlaw racing, the driver that has won the most events in the first nine races has gone on to win the title seven times.
After a second off weekend, The World of Outlaws will return to action on Saturday, April 10 at Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, Oklahoma.
