HAGERSVILLE, Ontario — Jumping back behind the wheel of a super stock for the first time this season, Jake Watson proved that he can still get the job done behind the wheel, scoring a eighth-place finish.
“It wasn’t too bad,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “I just came in here looking for a top-20 in a decent car, but we came out with a top-10 and despite losing power steering on Lap 16. We did pretty good.”
Watson feels some more time spent in the shop working on the No. 31w SMG Motorsports, Curt’s Coolers, Academy Construction, EPIC Racewear, Race2way.ca Super Stock could’ve gotten them even faster.
Watson proved his ability behind the wheel of a super stock last season at Flamboro Speedway, splitting a ride with Andy Kamrath that netted a couple trips to victory lane. Since then, though, he’s been only behind the wheel of his No. 88 Mustang Mini Stock.
“It’s been awhile and it’s a lot different than a mini stock, and this Jukasa track is a whole different breed of track,” he said. “I think it was a good, all in all.”
As we head into the final two months of the 2019 schedule, Watson has yet to finalize his schedule completely.
“I think we’re going to run wherever we can with not running for points anywhere anymore,” he commented. “I’m sure we’ll be at Velocity and Frostoberfest at Flamboro; I’m not sure about Peterborough. But we’ll definitely be somewhere.”
