@OSCAARRacing •(November 30, 2015)- With a top-10 finish in each of the races on the schedule, Corey Jones would have a solid sophomore season en route to finishing fifth in the 2015 Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws Presented by London Recreational Racing points standings.
Jones would come out of the gate really strong at the season opener at Sunset Speedway, scoring a solid fourth place finish after he was able to avoid trouble throughout the 50 laps. The return trip to Sunset Speedway in June wouldn’t work out as promising, though, as he would finish ninth after having a flat tire with eight laps to go.
Jones would bounce back the next month at Delaware Speedway, finishing a solid sixth in the feature. Unfortunately, Jones would miss the Chase for the Colours event at Peterborough Speedway, but would have Matt Pleil fill-in for him, finishing 10th.
Returning back behind the wheel at the end of August, Jones would come out of the gate really strong, with a fifth place finish at Sunset Speedway. The following weekend’s trip to Flamboro Speedway wouldn’t go as strongly, though, with Jones finishing eighth.
The driver of the No. 82 Griffen + Highbury, Nelson Aggregate, LaFleche Roofing, Royal Bank of Canada, Accountable Automotive, Castle Building Centres, Anmar Cleaning, Oktane Productions, Ken Robinson Refrigeration and EPIC Racewear Super Late Model would then head out to Peterborough Speedway, set for a strong run. The hard work by the Corey Jones Racing team throughout the season paid off as he’d have a great run, finishing on the podium with a third place finish.
“Any time you can finish anywhere close to the front at Peterborough it’s a pretty special feeling,” Jones said per the press release by Spencer Lewis. “It’s just such a tough place to get around. It’s so hard to pass and make up any ground at all, so even moves that would work for you on any given night seem to take a lot more time and effort to pull off at Peterborough.”
Jones would then cap the season off with a sixth place finish at Sunset, before finishing 10th at Peterborough Speedway in the season finale following late-race contact.
With a solid season under his belt, look for Jones to be a front running contender in 2016, possibly snatching his first career victory.
