It’s been a busy off-season for NASCAR Pinty’s Series racer Larry Jackson. The challenging 14-race schedule kicks off May 13 at Sunset Speedway and Jackson will be ready for action in his #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge. For a third consecutive season, the Canadian-owned O’Neil Electric Supply will be the primary partner for the Oakville, Ontario racer.
“It’s a pleasure to continue our association with O’Neil Electric Supply. The partnership continues to grow, Michael O’Neil and the entire team are race fans and they’ve joined us at several events, and it’s created a real bond with all of us. Their support is vital to the success of our race program,” said Jackson.
“We are excited about our renewed sponsorship of Larry Jackson and his O’Neil Team #84. Larry has been an excellent brand ambassador for O’Neil and our participation in the Canadian NASCAR circuit continues to resonate well with our employees as well as our customer and vendor partners. We are all looking forward to a successful campaign throughout the 2023 schedule,” said Michael O’Neil, CEO of O’Neil Electric Supply.
Over the winter, Jackson has been working in his race shop building new equipment and updating his existing cars with the newest pieces.
“We need to be ready for the challenges this series presents,” explained Jackson. “We race on ovals, street and road courses, plus a dirt track, in five different provinces. I’ll put the competition in this series against any other. There’s a lot of very good teams and we want to be our best.”
Returning for 2023 is Jackson’s long-time friend Howie Scannell as crew chief for the #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge and Matthew Scannell will also run select Pinty’s Series events in a second car prepared in Jackson’s shop.
The next eight weeks prior to the season opening event will be jam packed for Jackson and the #84 O’Neil Electric team.
“We’ve got some finishing work on the cars to complete and we’d like to have at least one test session prior to the first race to make sure we’re 100% ready,” said the driver.
Support for Larry Jackson and the #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge team includes additional associate partners eBay Motors Canada, Dooley’s Trucking, ABB, Milwaukee Tools and, new for 2023, the team welcomes E3 Spark Plugs and Visit Barbados. Product supply partners include Castrol, Dayco and B Squared Decals.
