Jones Squeaks By At Rocky Mountain
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – Al Jones picked up his first Comcast Super Stock win of the season on Monday at Rocky Mountain Raceways.
Starting on the front row, Travis Walker led the first eight laps of the 30-lap main.
Tim Fahrner held a significant advantage on the field until a caution on lap 18, when he exited the track and didn’t return. This opened up the lead to Travis Walker who faced close competition from Ford now running in second, and Jones running in third. As the last laps wound down, Jones made attempts at an outside pass on Ford. Jones made the pass stick on lap 29 and quickly set his sights on a first-place finish.
Jones caught Walker on the final lap and overtook him at the finish line, crossing just 0.028 seconds ahead of Walker. Ford finished in third, Corey Walker with fourth, and Don Fenton fifth.
The Labor Day event also featured Rocky Mountain Raceways’ annual Doomsday Figure-8 Trailer Race. A packed house witnessed Cheyenne Torgerson take first place. Richie Dastrup took home second and Aaric Tox took home third. The crowd-favorite Master of Disaster award went to 16-year-old Kylie Taylor.
Additional RMR Oval Racing Series winners included Kevin Truscott (Hornets), Jeanille Waters-Romero (Jr. Stingers), and All Powelled Up (Double Deckers).
