KOKOMO, IN (Dec 13, 2015) JFR SERIES TRAVELED TO KOKOMO FOR THE KLASH 50. THE SERIES FIRST VISIT THERE SINCE 2013.
Had some newer drivers and old school drivers on hand. It looked to be a promising event until weather come and delayed the start by around 40 minutes, causing some drivers to head home early. One of these drivers was veteran racer Smallz, of Pennsylvania.
"It's been 80 damn degrees all winter and then all of a sudden mother nature says 'let's make it rain, too'," said the disgruntled driver. "Now we have to load up and go home because Mother Nature is a bitch."
The event took off, albeit delayed, with VLR_Shock taking fast time at the short, flat track which he almost never loses at. He was followed by RB and Faschek. Shock would take the heat win and set the pace for the feature. He would set sail and never look back with just a few challenges by another veteran driver RB. The long time racer from Tennessee proved once again that Kokomo was his playground and that he decides who can play. Shock has now opened the newest rendition of JFR with back to back wins in the first two races as we head to Thunder Valley v4 on Sunday December 20th.
VLR JJ would finish third in his first race in several months with pressure from the 4 car of Hindman, KY driver Faschek. Returning JFR driver JFR_17 made a very strong return in his first dirt late model race in over two years by finishing 5th. JMAC would roll around and end up 6th. JFR Duster ran a few laps, but he had an ARCA race and flew out early in the race.
Some comments after the race...VLR Shock "I love running with JFR and the series. They are awesome, I love the gen 5 cars as well. Next week I think I am in trouble at Thunder Valley v4 but we will see. Right now i have all the momentum in the world though and hopefully we can keep it up."
XCR RB "I wanted to win bad but I just failed..I'll take 2nd and go start another series and see everyone at Thunder Valley which is possibly my best track. I really want a points title in such an awesome series. BY THE WAY XRT IS MY SERIES. I OWN IT. I AM BRINGING IT BACK ONE MORE YEAR. YOU HEAR ME JEFF? DO YOU HEAR ME DAMMIT?"
VLR JJ "I havent ran much lately but JFR just made me get my controller out and race, I love them and I will try to make it next sunday. I really wanted a VLR 1-2 finish tonight but we'll take a third after not racing for a while."
