To start the night, Waters pulled a pill draw of 55, putting the team in 7th position to start Heat 1. After a decent start to the heat race, Waters was called back. Some needed maneuvering on the restart caused Waters to avoid a potential wreck but put the driver in a position to play “catch up.” Waters reported he felt he was not aggressive enough to make any passes during the race but conserved the car to finish 6th. This set the team up to start 16th in the night’s main event.
Beginning the feature with a great start, Waters put the RaceSaver winged sprint in 12th position going in to turn one. After attempting to line up to make passes, the caution flag flew for a wreck, causing the start of the feature to cancel. On the restart, Waters moved up to 11th, but fought loose conditions for a significant portion of the feature when getting in to the turns. Losing 2 more spots due to the tough conditions, JCW Racing was able to hold on to 13th.
"We weren't terrible, but we weren't great either. The starts that were called back did not help, but it happens unfortunately. We can take this experience at Port Royal, and use it to grow to make ourselves even better." – Jake Waters
Despite the finish not being quite the way Waters wanted to finish the night, a silver lining after leaving Port Royal Speedway is JCW Racing has once again entered the Top 5 in Pennsylvania Sprint Series (PASS) points.
JCW Racing and team owner, driver Jake Waters would like to continue to thank the team’s sponsors, family and fans for their support in the hunt for Victory Lane during the 2015 season. The team will be back on Sunday, July 5 at Selinsgrove Speedway for the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial PA Speedweek Finale. On track action begins at 7:30 p.m.
