REYNOLDS, ND (September 2) - After traveling nearly 1,000 miles last weekend racing with the World of Outlaws, Jordan Adams and the Home of Economy team will be putting the labor into Labor Day weekend with four races in as many nights.
It all begins Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks. Saturday the tour will head to Greenbush Race Park before going to Buffalo River Race Park for a Sunday evening showdown. The weekend swing will wrap up where it began at River Cities with a 5pm show on Monday.
When NOSA last visited Greenbush in late July, Adams had a solid performance as he drove from eighth to fifth in the feature. Greenbush is home to where Jordan picked up his first career win with the NOSA Sprints back in 2014 and he will be looking to get career win No. 2 at the newly reconfigured high-banked quarter-mile oval.
In the two previous visits to Buffalo River in 2016, Jordan has picked up a pair of top 10 finishes. Back in May he came home sixth and later followed that up with a respectable seventh place finish in July.
Last weekend the Dekalb/Tony Anderson Construction crew rolled out their sharp looking black and gold World of Outlaws sprint car. The weekend began Friday in Grand Forks and things got off to a good start right at the get go.
Jordan finished in the fifth and final transfer spot in his heat, which put him in the 20th starting spot for the A-main. At the end of the 40-lap feature Adams crossed the line in 20th, which wasn’t a bad finish with 40 sprints on hand for the event.
On Saturday the team made the 320 mile trek to Badlands Motor Speedway near Sioux Falls, SD. A ninth place finish in the heat put Jordan fifth in the B-main. Unfortunately the 20-year-old Reynolds, ND driver finished where he started, which left him one spot shy of transferring into the main event.
The disappointing result didn’t affect the team’s moral, however. They spent all night driving back home to Reynolds, washed the car, and completed maintenance on just a few hours of sleep before heading out to Minot for World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event Sunday night.
All their hard work paid off. Jordan timed in 11th quick out of the 26 entries and transferred out of his heat with a fourth place finish. From there he raced his way to an 11th place finish, which was a nice way to cap off a busy weekend.
