INNISFIL, Ontario — Despite the weekend starting off on a rough note, Jake Watson would able to persevere his way through for a top-10 finish at Sunset Speedway’s Spring Velocity.
The weekend did not start off on a good note, with Watson missing his first heat on Saturday as a result of mechanical issues during the practice session. The JW Motorsports / WW Racing team was able to make the necessary repairs, with Watson getting some valuable test laps underneath him on Sunday morning.
The speed shown where would translate into the qualifier, with him scoring a third-place finish, and ability to run amongst the guys whom finished top-five in points last season.
Starting 12th for the 40-lap feature, he would avoid contact on the opening lap when a fellow competitor spun around on the frontstretch. He would begin to make his way forward, breaking into the top-10 at the quarter-mark of the event, though fell back to 11th a couple laps later.
Despite the setback, Watson continued to push forward, working his way back into the top-10 at the halfway mark, avoiding a couple incidents ahead of him to keep his nose clean. The good fortune continued, with Watson finding his way up to eighth by the time the checkered flag fell.
Watson will be back behind the wheel of the No. 88 Modified on Saturday, June 18 at Sauble Speedway.
