Jacobson Stars At Skagit Speedway
ALGER, Wash. — Night one of the Bob’s Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals ended just like the final night of the 2012 version of the show with three-time defending champ Travis Jacobson standing on top of the podium.
Jacobson chased down Justin Youngquist on a late race restart and took away the lead for the win. Kelsey Carpenter led the first 15 laps before having a right rear tire go flat, with Youngquist passing for the lead.
Running low, Youngquist had the field covered until the late race yellow closed the field. On the restart Jacobson went high, Youngquist low with the two battling for a few laps before the pass for the lead.
Shane Stewart ended the night as point leader followed by Travis Rilat. Jacobson is third with Colton Heath fourth, Sam Hafertepe Jr. is fifth and Trey Starks sixth. Stewart was fast time at 11.630 on the three-tenths-mile dirt track.
In the companion races, Freddie Vela won a time-shortened Outlaw Tuner main event and C.J. Putnam won the Dwarf Car main.
