March 23, 2019 - Jake O'Neil Attends King of America's Nationals at Humboldt; Suffers Flat-Tire in Feature
1Our King of America weekend was up and down for sure.

Thursday and Friday night, we had great nights, showing a lot of speed, winning a heat race and earning the outside of the front row in the feature by virtue of accumulating the second highest amount of passing points on the two qualifier nights.

Saturday night, we rolled off the front row of the feature and were in contention early, but ended up hitting the inside berm of the track and folding the nose under. We went into the pits and fixed it before coming back out and suffering a flat tire, ending our run and chance at the $12,000 payday.

Overall, we are happy with the speed we have in the car and are looking forward to the Mississippi triple-header next weekend.

The series kicked off on February 8th at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, AZ. 92 IMCA Modified competitors checked in for action on the opening night of the tour and Jake had a rough start to the tour, not able to make the start in either his heat or b-main due to mechanical issues. Nick had a better outing, finishing third in his heat race and coming home with a fifth place finish in his b-main.

The tour continued on February 9th at Arizona Speedway with another stout field of competitors in action.

From there, Jake put on a show, slicing and dicing through traffic to come home with an impressive fifth place finish.

Nick had his bad luck return as he failed to finish his heat race and then scratched from the night's b-main.

The 7th and final night of the tour was back at USA Raceway and saw Jake pick up the win on the final night of the tour after a fourth to first run in his heat race and then a fifth to first run in the night's main event to claim the $1,500 top prize.
