BEATRICE, Neb. (Oct. 2, 2023) – Jack Dover hustled from eighth to win last Friday at Beatrice Speedway, marking his second triumph of the season and first behind the wheel of his No. 53 winged sprint car.
“It was really special,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve went a year without winning in the No. 53. Plus, it was cool to run one and two with Tim (Estenson).”
Dover kicked off the night by advancing from seventh to fourth place in a heat race.
“In the first half I struggled to get by some cars,” he said. “I was able to get them halfway through and ended up running fourth, just right there with third at the line. That put us starting eighth in the feature.
“I kept watching the track pretty close and I knew it was going to rubber down. I figured I better make my moves pretty quick. I got to third about eight laps in. A yellow came out and I was able to get by Tim on the restart to get to second. Me and Jason Martin were pretty even. We got to traffic and went three wide down the backstretch just after halfway. It was a lapped car, me in the middle and Jason. I had a good run to get in front of them going into turn three. I stuck the bottom and when he tried to get down behind me he got together with the lapped car.”
Dover led the remainder of the race to remain undefeated at Beatrice Speedway, where he won during his only other start in 2016.
“We were pretty good,” he said. “It means a lot to our team and partners to capture a win.”
Dover plans to take this weekend off before joining the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Oct. 14 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
