REYNOLDS, ND (July 20) - After a rainout Friday night at River Cities Speedway, Jordan Adams and the Home of Economy/WinField team made the trip down to Glyndon, MN for a Saturday night special at Buffalo River Race Park.
After picking up the heat race win, Jordan started third in the 24-car field for the main event. Unfortunately the 25-lapper didn’t quite go as planned for the driver of the #20A.
“Starting 3rd and falling back to 7th was pretty disappointing,” said Adams. “We were super free at the beginning of the race and then when the rubber came in it evened out and we were really fast. Unfortunately, when it's rubber down there is no passing.”
Sunday night the NOSA tour traveled 20 miles west to Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo. The Red River Valley Fair special event marked the first Sprint Car race at the facility since August of 2012.
Jordan drove from eighth to third in his heat, which put him outside of the front row for the 25-lap feature.
“The track wasn't in the best shape all night,” said Adams. “But everyone seemed to be running the top in [turns] one and two and the bottom in [turns] three and four. We had a solid car all night and had the potential of a top three finish but a late race caution took that away from us.”
Jordan crossed the line in eighth, but took away a few key notes from the race that he can use in future similar situations.
“I learned when things get stacked up like that with five to go you better be ready to go hard for those five laps. The intensity level seemed like it had jumped ten times on that final restart. I'm young, I learned a pretty valuable lesson there and I will make sure it doesn't happen again.”
Tomorrow night Adams will be back in action at Norman County Raceway in Ada, MN.
“NCR is one track where I know I haven't ran the best. I guess you could say that's one track I really push myself to do better at each year we go back so I am looking forward to that. Big thanks to my crew all weekend for their hard work and to all my partners supporting me making this dream a reality.”
