– HARTFORD, S.D. (July 9, 2019) – Jack Dover doubled his season win count last weekend during a Midwest Sprint Touring Series doubleheader in South Dakota.
“It was a pretty good weekend,” he said. “We had speed and we tried some setup stuff that seemed to work. With what we learned and the momentum we’ve got right now everything is great.”
The weekend began on Friday at Wagner Speedway in Wagner, where Dover advanced from seventh to third place during a heat race. That earned enough points to make the feature redraw and Dover drew the No. 7 to line up seventh in the main event.
“Our redraws last weekend weren’t too hot so we had to work for it,” he said. “We freed the car up and I was able to get to the front about 15 laps in. We checked out, but there was a late restart. I got a good restart and took off.”
Dover’s win was his third in a row at Wagner Speedway dating back to July 2018. He also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.
Dover then made the trip to I-90 Speedway, where he hadn’t competed since May 2013. Dover rallied from sixth to second place in a heat race and he began the feature on the inside of the fourth row for the second straight night after getting the No. 7 in the feature redraw.
“I was surprised how good the track was for not being raced on for three years and with all the weather they’ve had,” he said. “It slicked off in the heat races. It only took rubber coming out of turn two in the feature. We hit the setup, which was the same as Friday night. We’ll use that from now on until we find something better. I’d say we got the lead midway through the race and had a good restart on a green-white-checkered finish to earn the win.”
Dover will venture to Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., this Friday for a show with the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series before he races on Saturday at Park Jefferson International Speedway in Jefferson, S.D., with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints.
