HARTFORD, S.D. (July 30, 2019) – July was a spectacular month for Jack Dover, who finished with five victories in a 23-day span.
Dover swept last weekend, winning both his heat race and the main event both nights to end the month with five wins in eight races. He now has seven victories on the season.
“It takes good crew guys, that’s the main thing,” he said. “They have to make sure the car is good. I get the easy job of driving it. We’ve been trying some stuff and have learned a lot. It seems like we’ve found something that works really well. The flip I took a couple of weeks ago actually bent the frame a little bit. It seems like it’s working better since then.”
The action began last Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints. A run from fourth to win a heat race earned Dover a spot into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row.
“We got on the top side and railed the top the whole time,” he said. “We were able to pass lapped cars on the bottom and could slide them. We were able to go where we wanted and pick up ground on all the cars in the field. It was probably the best my car has felt at I-80. The race went green to checkered and I lapped up to third place.”
Dover continued his dominance the following night during a Midwest Sprint Touring Series event at I-90 Speedway. He claimed a heat race win from the pole and again drew the No. 2 during the feature redraw.
“In the feature we tightened the car up quite a bit,” he said. “It was one of those tracks you had to slow up and pedal around the bottom. The yellow come out and rubber started to come in with about 10 laps to go. My crew guy said there was rubber starting in the middle of turns one and two. Once you get in the rubber you have to protect your line and make sure you don’t slip out of it.”
Dover did just that en route to the victory. He rides that momentum into the 29th annual My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank, which is this weekend at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. His preliminary night is Thursday with the event concluding on Saturday.
“I’m pretty excited because my car is driving the best it’s ever driven since I got it,” he said. “That’s exciting and the confidence is there after the last couple of wins.”
