A to Z Promotions2017 Park Jefferson International Speedway Top Story Logo
On a race day with temperatures touching 98 and a heat index of 101, the racing action was just as hot as the final 2 features had last lap passes to end an exciting night of racing courtesy of Motor Parts Central and Central Automotive Machine.
The big shootout featuring the Carpetland Nebraska 360 Sprints vs. the Midwest Sprint Touring series featuring the Keizer Wheels 360 Sprint Cars saw Jody Rosenboom and Seth Brahmer jump into the top 2 spots from the starter stand. Working the low line of the dried out surface, Rosenboom continue on the point. Meanwhile, Nebraska’s Jordan Boston and Cody Ledger found the remnants of the cushion and hammered their way past a number of cars to challenge for the top spot. Ledger, who was coming off a victory last week, was particularly impressive and able to pull to within a couple of car lengths of Brahmer. After a daring pass of Brahmer, Ledger set his sights on Rosenboom. After following Rosenboom low through 1 and 2 a slip up the track gave Ledger the inches he needed to take the win by a couple of tenths of a second over Jody Rosenboom and Seth Brahmer. Jordan Boston came from 8th to finish fourth. Greg Bakker and track point leader Cody Hansen both earned hard charger honors with by advancing 8 positions.

The IMCA RACESaver Sprints saw “The Combine” Dusty Ballenger take the top spot over previous feature winners Casey Abbas and Colin Smith. Abbas who has figured out the perfect setup for Park, was able to challenge Ballenger multiple times but in the end Ballenger’s experience was too much to overcome.
Park Jefferson is dark this Saturday night but will return to action on July 29th for Liberty National Banks $5 night with adult tickets only $5 and children and senior tickets just $1.
