SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (Sept. 17, 2013) – After spending last weekend at his sister’s wedding, Jack Dover is amped to return to the track for a marque doubleheader on Friday and Saturday.
In a quest for his third consecutive ASCS Midwest Region championship and fourth title in the last six years, Dover will compete at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., for the 2nd annual Midwest Fall Brawl sponsored by Home Pride Companies, Inc.
“I’m looking forward to it more than the Knoxville Nationals,” he said. “There’s more money on the line and I run really well at the track. I have a good chance at it.”
In fives races at the big track this season, Dover has been dominant. He hasn’t placed outside the top three in a heat race and has two feature wins and four top-five finishes. In fact, his worse result is a 12th-place finish at the track.
At last year’s inaugural Midwest Fall Brawl, Dover claimed his heat race and the feature on the opening night before placing third in the finale. This season, there’s a lot more money on the line.
The feature winner receives $2,500 each night with a $20,000 bonus in the Durst Motorplex/ZOZ Farms Double Down Back-to-Back Challenge for sweeping the weekend. The hard charger in each feature gets additional money and there is bonus money for feature laps led. There is also a King of the Hill competition to wrap up the weekend – which Dover won last season – that pays $1,000 to win.
“The key will be luck for one thing and making sure you have no mechanical issues,” Dover said. “Chris is up here going through the motors making sure everything is tip top.”
Additionally, the Midwest Fall Brawl presents the final two ASCS Midwest Region races of the season. Dover holds an 82-point advantage and can wrap up his fourth region championship since 2008 by placing 10th or better each night.
