3L (20) Charges from 12th to 5th at Fairbury; 3rd at Farmer City
After spending most of the day Saturday fixing up Jeffrey's car from an earlier incident at Lincoln, the 3L team decided to take the car to Fairbury hoping a different car (and number) would change the luck the team has had at FALS this season. The night did not start out well as the motor developed a miss in qualifying and Jeff would have to settle for 14th quick out of the 21 cars on hand and again miss the fast eight heat race, a heat which set the first four rows of the feature. The team, along with some help from others in the pits, worked on the motor problem and were hopeful that it was fixed. Jeff started third in his heat and improved a spot to second. Starting twelfth in the feature, Jeff would carefully use a tricky cushion to his advantage as he would soon begin to work his way towards the front. As he made his way into the top five, Jeff wanted more but unfortunately the car started shaking as the right rear tire was packed full of mud. As a result, he had to get in line on the bottom and settle for a fifth place finish. A pretty good night after a rough start as Jeff and the team collected their first top five of the season at FALS. On Friday, the 3L team went to Farmer City. Starting eighth in the feature, the 3L improved to third at the checkers. -- August 6, 2011
