Jacombs Keeps On Posting Top Tens

Hamilton, Ontario: Dave Jacombs and the #88 Speedy Auto Service/Dynomax Performance Exhaust Taurus team continued their string of top ten finishes with another fourth at the challenging Mosport road course on Sunday. After back-to-back seventh place finishes in the first two events of the Castrol Super Series, Jacombs has now strung together two fourth place finishes in event three and four.

Saturday's qualifying session proved to be very satisfying for the Jacombs Racing Team as they posted the eighth quickest time during the second of two timed sessions. Jacombs like most CASCAR drivers is a veteran of the oval tracks who continues to improve his talents on the road courses. A delighted Jacombs said after qualifying "We are really pleased with this new car. This is our first time out with it and it feels really comfortable."

Race strategy was again to take it easy on the car and save it for a late race run to the front. On lap 34 Jacombs inherited the point from D. J. Kennington when he pitted. The Speedy Taurus remained up front until he pitted for tires and fuel on the next lap. Jacombs then started to patiently pass competitors in front of him and when the checkered flag waved he crossed the finish line in fourth.

Jacombs said after the race, "This car was awesome and I had some really good helpers located around the track. This was definitely a team effort this weekend and we are all really happy to be bringing home our best road course finish."

Dave Jacombs and the #88 Speedy Auto Service/Dynomax Performance Exhaust Taurus remain in third place in the point standings. Podium finishers were 1. D.J. Kennington in the Castrol Intrepid, 2. Jim Lapcevich, 3. Kerry Micks ^Ö the current points leader.

The next event on the agenda for the Speedy Auto Service team is a show at Speedy store #112 on Lansdowne Street in Peterborough on Saturday June 30th and then on to Kawartha Speedway for event #5 on Sunday July 1st.
