Team Finishes Second at Auburndale
Last Saturday, Jake had his best finish to date in the Florida United Promoter’s
Super Late Model race series. The race was at Auburndale Speedway in Winter
Haven. The 2011 series Rookie of the Year started fifth, was involved in an
accident on lap 55 and for the remaining 45 laps drove a damaged car to a second
place finish. Jake gave a lot of the credit to his spotter Edward Howell, and crew
chief Jimmy Cope for helping him deal with the damaged car and keeping his
position on the track. This was the second series race of the year. Jake briefly led
in the first race in Bradenton, ran second for 58 laps and was pushed into the wall
on a restart which ended his night.
The next series race is at New Smyrna Speedway on April 7th. This will be a very
special night, in that Jake will be hosting a group from the Children’s Home Society
of Florida. Jake will also be driving the new car (all fixed up) and looking for another
top finish. Come out and support Jake and have a great night.
