Kevin Lee & the 3J Motorsports team ready to take on grueling Speedweek schedule

From 3J Motorsports PR

(Green Springs, OH) Kevin Lee and the 3J Motorsports team are about to embark a grueling nine straight days of racing action across the state of Ohio. Originally the team had only planned on contesting four of the nine dates, but with all the rain-outs at Fremont and Attica this season thoughts began to stir of possibly attempting the daunting task of contesting nine races in nine nights at nine different Ohio race tracks. Kevin and his car owner, Jason Deel, have longed to run the entire Ohio Speedweek schedule.

The endeavor will be a challenge for the small Green Springs, OH based 3J Motorsports team which are in just their second full season of 410 racing, but everyone on the team is pumped up about it and ready to give it their best shot. Work schedules and the like will be a big obstacle to overcome, but everyone is ready to do all they can to make the week a success.

The week will bring an opportunity for Kevin and the team to visit 3 tracks that they have yet to race at. Hilltop Speedway, Waynesfield Motorsports Park, and Sharon Speedway will be first time visits for the 3J team as well as driver Kevin Lee. Limaland will be a first time for the team and driver in the 410 division as both Kevin and the 3J team have competed there before in the 305 division.

Race #1 Friday June 18th – The week kicks off at one of the Kistler Racing Products FAST Series tracks, Attica Raceway Park where Kevin and the team run on a weekly basis. Kevin is currently 10th in the Attica 410 point standings and has a best finish of 6th at the 1/3 mile oval this season.

Race #2 Saturday June 19th – The team will head to KC Raceway where Kevin has ran once this season garnering a 10th place finish in the feature.

Race #3 Sunday June 20th – Finds the 3J team at Millstream Speedway. Kevin and the 3J team have competed at Millstream 3 times. In 2008 in one of Kevin’s first 410 starts, he had a strong top ten run going and ended in 17th after not finishing due to front end damage suffered after a huge wheelie. The other 410 start was Speedweek in 2009 where he failed to qualify for the A-main. The team also had a 305 start, on the same night as the 2009 Speedweek show, and finished with a 5th place run.

Race #4 Monday June 21st – Kevin and the boys will head to Wayne County Speedway for Mondays event. Kevin and the 3J team have competed at the Wayne County facility once before (2009) and had a 3rd place finish in that event.

Race #8 Friday June 25th – Limaland Motorsports Park will be the first time that Kevin and the team have competed in the 410 division at the 1/4 mile bullring. Kevin and the 3J team have both competed at Lima in the 305 division.

Race #9 Saturday June 26th – The grand finale finds the team back at home at Fremont Speedway. Fremont is another Kistler Racing Products FAST Series track that the team competes at on a weekly basis. Kevin is currently 7th in the Fremont 410 standings.
