VALLEE-JONCTION, QC (June 12, 2022) – Larry Jackson and the #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge team take home an 11th place finish after a tough battle at this weekend’s Qwickwick 250 (presented by St. Hubert) at Autodrome Chaudière.
The team was prepared for an aggressive race with lots of side-by-side racing, and that it was at times.
The #84 Dodge team did not qualify as high as they hoped, starting 17th. Jackson battled his way forward in the first half of the race working his way to the top 10 running a steady pace. The high bank oval promotes side-by-side racing and cars often sustain collateral damage from others. This was the case when Jackson’s #84 sustained front end damage after the #12 and #37 cars got together.
During the scheduled halfway break, Jackson and the #84 team made adjustments to the car and ran strong in the second half. Jackson was headed towards a top ten finish but unfortunately got turned by the #37 late in the race and settled for an 11th place finish.
Larry Jackson Quotes:
“Should have had a top ten, but we got turned. You can race side-by-side here, but with some guys you have to be careful, and we got bitten”
“Car was really good all night, we just needed a little track position”.
“Great job by the team, car was consistent all night. We’ll move on and get ready for Newfoundland. We’re happy to welcome Dooley’s Trucking as a partner for that event.”
Larry Jackson will drive the #84 Dooley’s Trucking/O’Neil Electric Dodge at Eastbound International Speedway for the first ever Pinty’s Series race in the province on June 25th.
