Despite battling an ill-handling car throughout the night, Jade Franklin persevered to post a top-10 finish.
The teenager started off the night by posting a eighth-place finish in his first heat, followed by sixth in the second to start 13th for the 30-lap feature. He began to make his way forward on the early laps, moving up to 11th by Lap 3. He continued to move forward, running ninth as of Lap 11. Unfortunately, he faded back a bit in the second half of the event, fading back to 11th with nine laps to go. In the final laps, he was able to make one final pass to pick up a 10th place finish.
Franklin will return to Sunset Speedway on May 6 in hopes of posting another solid performance after finishing fifth in points last season.
