"Jeanes Wins 2nd Race in 4 Days"
What a week it was for #38 Michael Jeanes! Fresh off his 1st career TFR win this past Sunday in the "Special Events Race" @ Homestead, Michael recorded his 1st DW-12 Series victory this past Wednesday @ Las Vegas in the Season #5 opener. Michael started 14th on the grid, led (30) laps and recorded the fastest lap of the race in route to the top step on the Podium. The Black Adder Motorsports #38 finsihed 4th in the World Championship last season and legitimately looks like a Title Contender in Season #5. Michael had (12) Top 5's, (15) Top 10's and (2) Poles last season in route to collecting $40 for 4th Place in the World Championship. Jeanes also collected $20 over the course of the week as a result of his 2 victories, bringing his career total to $108.
Finishing 2nd in Sin City was the Checkers or Wreckers #18 Travis Browder. Browder ran more than part time in Season #4 and finished 8th in the World Championship, but has vowed he will be competing for the Championship in Season #5. With that being said Travis is off to a solid start with a 2nd Place finish to kick off the schedule. T-Bro was the "Biggest Mover" of the race after starting 30th on the grid, but cost himself $5 for the honor by not qualifing. However, Travis did receive $5 for his overall efforts, bringing his career total to $61 earned in TFR.
Finally, coming home 3rd from Vegas was the Rated "R" Racing #8 Paul Krumrei. Paul started 4th on the Grid and only led (3) laps over the course of 300 Miles, but collected that $5 for standing on the bottom step of the Podium. Krumrei was also a regular last season, but did not run a full schedule and in result finished 9th in the World Championship. Paul only had (5) Top 5's and (9) Top 10's last season in (16) starts, so the #8 is already off to a much better start here in Season #5. Krumrei's only Top Fuel victory came back on July 6th, 2016 in the Summer Lites Series @ Pocono, so maybe Paul can find that magic touch next Wednesday in the DW-12 @ the ticky triangle.
See ya in the Pocono's...
