RAHMER, NORMAN, PARKINSON, WEST AND WILSON FIRST IN J&J'S
McKENZIE, TN (June 13) - Tim Norman, Fred Rahmer, Chris Parkinson, Adam West, and Kyle Wilson raced their way to victories over the weekend in J&J Auto Racing sprint cars.
SPRINTS ON DIRT
Tim Norman made his trip from Warsaw, Indiana to Rothbury, Michigan pay off Friday night during the Engine Pro, Sprints On Dirt presented by Total Seal series event at Winston Speedway. He captured his first A Main of the season in the #3g Joe Gaerte-owned, MOPAR powered J&J before a standing room only crowd. Norman jumped into the lead on lap three and went on to claim the 25-lap feature event.
SOUTHERN ONTARIO SPRINTS
J&J Auto Racing teams swept the program on Saturday night at Brighton Speedway in round six of the 10th anniversary season of the Southern Ontario Sprints. The evening began with a make-up feature from the season opener and it was a historic evening for Adam West as he won his first career SOS feature in the #30 J&J. West jumped out into the early lead and took home the victory ahead of fellow J&J runner, Kyle Wilson in the #16k J&J.
"I'm shaking all over with excitement," said West, following the win. "I can't believe I finally got my first Feature win."
Wilson continued his impressive evening by racing from the 11th starting position in the regular feature program. The youngster put his #16k J&J in the lead on lap six and went on to win the feature.
MIDWEST SPRINT CAR SERIES
Chris Parkinson won his sixth consecutive Midwest Sprint Car Series feature event on Saturday night at Warrensburg Speedway. Parkinson drove the #74 Dan Lawson Racing/Flooring Systems/Neo Synthetic/Home Depot/J&J to victory, which helped him continue to lead the points championship in both Midwest Sprint Car Series and the Thunder Sprints Series.
SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY PARK
Fred Rahmer returned to victory lane on Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway Park driving the familiar Joe Harz Racing #88h J&J. Rahmer started ninth and worked his way into fifth by lap three and was in fourth one lap later. Following a yellow on lap seven, Rahmer worked his way past Bobby Weaver with a low move in turns three and four and beat Weaver back to the start finish line on lap eight.
"When I got to third, I knew I had a chance," Rahmer said. "I was just riding around trying to save my tires. I knew it would be tough and the later I waited, the tougher it was going to be. When I got a chance, I hit the gas and went by."
Rahmer would go on to claim the win and he was joined on the podium by Eric Stambaugh, who brought the Swope Racing #4 J&J home third.
