The Jordan Adams Racing team put together two strong runs this past weekend in Ada, Minnesota and Grand Forks, North Dakota. Thursday night, the team traveled to Norman County Raceway for their one and only appearance in 2015. 17 cars were ready to do battle. Jordan would start 4th in his heat race and finish 4th. "The track was super fast. It was narrow so it was hard to pass," Jordan commented. In the feature, the 20A Home of Economy sprint car was set to start 9th. The green flag flew and Jordan settled into 9th. As the race went on, the track dried off and began to take rubber in the middle. Once Jordan found the rubber, he turned the second quickest lap of the race and moved into the 8th position which is where he finished. "The feature was decent for us. Unfortunately, i didn't find the rubber right away, but when I did i was fast," said Jordan.
The team then set their sights on River Cities Speedway Friday night. It was Mid-Season Championship night which would set the heat race up by points. 28 cars were ready for battle on the bullring. Going into the night, Jordan was tied for 5th place so he would line up on the outside of row 2 in the second heat race. After shooting to the lead early in the heat race, Jordan would start to fall back and would eventually finish 5th, respectively. "I gave it everything i had in the heat. I tried running high, low, in the middle and nothing worked for me," said Jordan. This would line Jordan up to start 14th in the feature. From the drop of the green flag, Jordan started his charge to the front. With the help of a few cautions to restack the field, Jordan found himself in 6th with 10 to go. Another late caution with 4 to go found Jordan sitting in the 4th position. On the restart, Jordan dove to the bottom in 1 and 2 and passed Austin Pierce going down the backstretch for the 3rd position. Jordan would pull even with Wade Nygaard, but could not make the pass coming to the checkers. "It was a great race. Our car was great from the start and only got better at the end. I owe a big shoutout to my crew for staying after it all night. We struggled in the heat race, so to come back and finish 3rd which is our career best at River CIties Speedway feels like a win. To finish behind Dobmeier and Nygaard who have been doing this for more than 20 years feels really good considering we are in our 4th year of racing. Big thanks to all the people helping me out as i chase my dreams," Jordan commented.
This week Jordan will be racing at River Cities Speedway on Friday night. Jordan is tied for 4th in NOSA points heading into the weekend. Jordan is tied for 5th in River Cities Speedway points.

With a double header planned for the weekend, the Jordan Adams Racing team found themselves rained out on Friday night.
The team then turned their focus to Buffalo River Race Park, one of Jordan's favorite tracks on the NOSA tour. 24 cars were checked in and ready to do battle. Jordan would draw a 117 eventually lining him up 5th in the third heat race. After a caution flag flew upon completion of the first lap, Jordan would now start 3rd after the 3rd place car was accessed for the caution. The next start would quickly find Jordan out front and pulling away from the rest of the field. A caution flag for a pileup in turn two would erase Jordan's lead and set the rest of the field right on his bumper. Jordan was able to hold off the field when the caution flew yet again for debris on the front stretch. The final 6 laps went green, and Jordan would win his heat race by a straight away. "The car was great. The track started to take rubber so once I found clean air I knew it was all up to me," Jordan commented.
Come feature time, the #20A Home of Economy RML Trading sprinter lined up on the outside of the front row. When the green flag flew, Jordan settled into second for the first few laps. Wade Nygaard would pass Jordan on lap 3 putting Jordan back to the 3rd position. With 4 to go the yellow flag flew for the leader who spun off turn 2. This handed the lead to Cory Mack with Jordan in second and Austin Pierce in third. A four lap shootout saw Jordan pull even with the leader multiple times, but could not make the bottom work enough to make the pass. Jordan would finish in 2nd place, his best finish of the season to date. "Second is nothing to hang our heads about, but second sure stings when your that close. I am really proud of our team for everything we've accomplished this season. We're running strong and consistent, were just missing that win," said Jordan.
This week the team has another double header on tap. Thursday, the team will be in Ada, Minnesota at Norman County Raceway for their one and only appearance in 2015. Friday, Jordan will head back to River Cities Speedway to cap off the weekend.

Jordan Adams entered last weekends double header feeling pretty confident after climbing into the top 3 at River Cities Speedway points. The weekend started at River Cities Speedway on Friday night. Jordan started 7th in his heat race and crossed the checkers in the 4th position advancing him into the A main.
The Home of Economy #20A sprinter was scheduled to start the feature from the 11th position. At the drop of the green flag, Jordan held his ground and maintained his position throughout half of the race. After a red flag halted the race, Jordan put the hammer down and started to make his way to the front. Jordan reached the 7th position when the caution came out on lap 19. On the next restart Jordan jumped up to the 5th position but would lose out to Wade Nygaard and Mitch Mack. "We had a pretty decent car in the heat. I as a driver need to start stepping it up in the heat races so we give ourselves a better starting spot come feature time. In the feature I had a great car. It was fun up challenging for the top positions."
Saturday took the team to Devils Lake Speedway for their third and final appearance of the year. Jordan started the heat race from the 6th position and finished 4th. Jordan started the feature from the 10th position, but quickly started making his way forward. Jordan worked the top side of the race track and attempted a few slide jobs, but could not complete them. After starting the last green white checkered restart in the 7th position, Jordan slipped to 9th place. "I was very frustrated with myself after the race. My crew gave me a great car that definitely belonged in the top 5. Sometimes that's just how the green white checkers go. Its a mad scramble."
Jordan would like to thank all his partners that are working with him in 2015. Please go view them in the "Partners Category".
Next up for the Jordan Adams Racing team is River Cities Speedway on Friday July 17th, and Buffalo River Race Park Saturday July 18th.

The Jordan Adams Racing team was back in action this holiday weekend with a doubleheader on the line. First, the team traveled to River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota. 29 cars were checked in and ready to take on the Legendary Bullring. Jordan would start 8th in his heat race with the top 6 transferring into the A-main. Jordan worked his way up to 5th place coming to the white flag. Coming out of turn 4, Jordan snatched the 4th position away ensuring him a position in the main event. "The track was very fast, as well as our heat race driver wise. I knew I had my work cut out for me when seeing the lineup. Walking away with a 4th felt pretty decent considering the competition and our start/finish position," said Jordan.
This put the #20A Home of Economy Outlaw Sprint Car in the 5th row for the feature. Starting 10th, Jordan slowly worked his way up to 7th on a track that was still fairly tacky. A restart upcoming with 6 to go hindered a possible shot at a top 5 with Jordan falling two spots after a poor restart. "I didn't get the best restart and fell back a few spots. 9th place isn't anything to hang our heads about, Our car was decent, but the track stayed fast and narrow not providing much of an opportunity to pass", Jordan mentioned.
The team then traveled to Greenbush, Minnesota on Saturday with high expectations after winning this race a year ago. 22 cars were checked in and ready for battle. Jordan would start 2nd in his heat race and finish 3rd. Jordan commented, "The track was pretty hit and miss. It was tacky in 1 and 2 and really dry in 3 and 4. Unfortunately, I dropped a spot about halfway through which really hurt us for the feature lineup." Jordan would start the feature from position 11. Once the green flag dropped, Jordan was quickly on the move getting to 9th just a few laps in when the first caution flag flew. The track took rubber which created little to no opportunity to pass unless of a driver error. Jordan would come home 8th. "We figured the track would take rubber, we just weren't sure when it would so it was important to get all I could at the start and after cautions. Unfortunately, the rubber was full blown within the first five laps."
Jordan has now quietly moved up into 3rd place in River Cities Speedway points just 31 points back from the lead. Jordan sits 4th in NOSA points.
This weekend will be another doubleheader as the team heads to River Cities Speedway Friday and Devils Lake Speedway Saturday.
