Tommy Jackson Jr and Bradley Kilby Pick up INEX Wins
Hampton, VA – Tommy Jackson Jr. has returned to his winning ways after a rough start to the season, wrecking two cars on two different opening nights. He qualified on the pole for the 25 lap feature running a 18.134 to beat out Spencer Saunders. Through the race the two battled nose to tail the entire 25 laps with Saunders able to apply some nudges to Jackson in the closing laps but not able to get by the fast 87 car. The win is his second in a row at Langley Speedway. Down in victory lane Tommy talked about the tight racing with Saunders, “Me and Spencer were team mates a couple years ago so its a lot of fun running really competitive with him like that, he’s had great cars. I was a little loose during the race but it was good enough and it was really good in the long runs.”
In the Bandoleros, Autumn Weaver ran fastest time in group qualifying with a 21.696 to beat out the other seven cars in the session. After taking the green she went three wide with Bradley Kilby going down low and Cole Bruce on her high side. Kilby and Weaver win out on the exchange and Bruce falls back to Jacob Putnam. The top-6 from this point ran side by side for the opening three laps with Kilby edging Weaver to the line and after fifth and sixth sorted their positions the top-4 ran side by side for another five laps. Bradley defended the bottom line well with Weaver closing in with just a few laps left and is able to hold on to the win.
