JACOBS TO BE HONORED AT ELDORA

ROSSBURG, OH (June 17) -- Kenny Jacobs, who announced earlier this season that this would be his final year behind the wheel of a race car, will be honored Saturday night, June 25 at Eldora Speedway when the All Star Sprints invade the one-half mile clay oval.

Jacobs has enjoyed immense All Star success on the legendary Eldora high-banks, with 21 visits to victory lane out of the 116 total All Star appearances to date. The popular Holmesville, Ohio chauffeur, cleverly nicknamed "The Mouse", captured his first All Star win on June 2, 1984 and recorded at least one All Star win in 13 different years, with his most recent triumph coming August 2, 2001.

But it hasn't just been the All Stars that has seen the Jacobs resume improve.

His most shining moment came in 1994 when he captured $100,000 and a victory in the 2nd annual Historical Big One (HBO).

He has been equally competitive in the fabled Kings Royal, with 18 starts to date in that lucrative event. His best finish came in 1991 when he finished runner-up to Steve Kinser, and over the years has racked up 6 top ten finishes in the Kings Royal.

The versatile veteran also has two World of Outlaw (WoO) feature wins at Eldora, dating back to 1994 when he captured back to back WoO wins en route to his stellar HBO conquest.

Jacobs will be honored prior to the start of the evening's All Star activity in special pre-race ceremonies. Joining the All Stars in the tripleheader program will be the United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) Modifieds and Eldora Stocks, with an 8:00 PM race start time.
