Jack Dossey III started out his weekend at the inaugural Winchester Speedway with hopes of pulling off double duty in both the JEGS/CRA All Stars Tour to fight to keep his spot in the chase and the ARCA/CRA Super Series to toon in the car for the Winchester 400 taking place at the beginning of October. Unfortunately due to engine difficulties Jack's attempt to work in his car for the upcoming 400 lap event ended soon after it started. The motor will be sent off for the next few weeks to Hamner Racing Engines to sort out the difficulties and get Jack back out there for the Winchester 400.
With that, the crew went to work on the Pro Late Model and put Jack on top of the board in the first practice session and in the top 5 in the sessions to follow Saturday afternoon.
Jack and the crew continued on with their success in the practice sessions Sunday afternoon putting Jack in the top 3 each one. Jack Dossey III went on to set fast time with a time of 15.991. After qualifying, Jack pulled for an invert of 6, putting him on the outside chase competitor Carson Hocevar and behind 2016 Winchester 400 winner Travis Braden.
Jack Dossey III started out his race smoothly, just trying to save his equipment for later in the race. For the first 13 laps Jack held his starting position of P. 6. The first caution came out at lap 12, on the restart JD3 gained 2 positions putting him in P. 4! After a hard battle between the No. 51 of Eddie Fatscher for P. 3, Jack then moved on to trying to catch up to leaders Jack Smith and Travis Braden. On lap 66, the two got together, putting the No. 28 of Jack Smith out of the race and the No. 26 of Braden to the tail of the field. Jack then restarted the race in P. 1 to the outside of Fatscher. After racing door to door for several laps with the No. 51, Jack finally cleared the New York native on lap 88.
Just one lap later, Fatscher finds himself in the turn 4 outside wall, bringing out the next caution of the race.
With 11 laps to go, Jack would restart on the outside of the No. 14 of Carson Hocevar. As the took the green is when Jack realized something was causing the car to handle quite ill. It was obvious to Jack he had a tire going down due to picking up debris on the track. The tire forced Jack back to P. 10 where he would finish the race.
Even after the way the events played out at Winchester Speedway, Jack and his crew still remain hopeful in the weekends to come in the race for the chase!
Next, Jack takes on Owosso Speedway on September 9th, where he finished P. 11 last season with the JEGS/CRA All Stars Tour!
