OAKVILLE, ON (August 31, 2022) Larry Jackson and the #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge team are ready to set tires on the highly acclaimed grand-prix road course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this Labour Day weekend. This will be round 12 of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series and the second time this season at CTMP.
Jackson had a top-ten finish at the first CTMP event earlier this year. During this event in the spring, consistency was key and the #84 team plans to use similar strategy this weekend for the best possible result. Jackson was able to climb his way through the field gaining seven spots at an excellent pace in the spring to give him a 10th place finish.
The #84 O’Neil Electric machine has been a force with top speeds all year but has experienced some mechanical misfortune hurting their results. This weekend the racecar is tuned and in pristine shape ready to run in the WeatherTech 200 as part of the CTMP Labour Day Sprints feature!
In addition, Larry Jackson Racing is proud to announce they will be running O’Neil Electric on the #99 Matthew Scannell car as an associate sponsor for this eventful weekend!
Jackson is ready to finish the season strong and looking forward to spending part of the weekend with 400 plus O’Neil Electric Supply guests, employees, families and vendors that will be in attendance. The group will enjoy a special autograph session prior to the race Sunday and a show car will be in the VIP area. This is all thanks to Mike O’Neil who is putting on this event to show his appreciation for the great family and friends that work so hard for O’Neil. Jackson is excited to give them an inside look at the racing world this weekend.
Larry Jackson Quote:
““We had a really strong race in the spring and I’m confident we can do it again. Our focus is on executing our plan and strategy, we don’t need to worry about the other guys. Everyone did a great job navigating the tough conditions in the spring race, there was a lot of action that we stayed away from, and I was able to bring the car back without a mark on it and in tenth spot. That was a solid day, we want to do even better this weekend in front of all the O’Neil Electric group that’ll be cheering us on”.
