Tony Jackson, Jr. Dominate at Adams County

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the final checkered flag fell at Adams County Speedway Saturday night it was Tony Jackson, Jr. who had pulled off the clean sweep at the Corning, Iowa speed plant by capturing not only his heat race, the QuickCar Racing Products Quick Six to set on the pole for the event but also came home with the $5,000 pay day for the annual ‘Liberty 50’.


Jackson started from the pole position, but it was previous night’s winner Ryan Gustin who jumped out to the early lead over Jacson with Chris Simpson, Tommy Weeder, Jr, Terry Phillips and Chris Simpson in tow.

 

The #56 of Jackson rocketed to the lead past Gustin coming out of turn four to complete the 15th lap just as leaders began to hit lapped traffic. In traffic Jackson was able to extend his lead and the #32 of Chris Simpson moved into second and began to give chase to the leader.

 

Several late cautions filled the event, but Jackson was able to hold off a hard charging Chris Simpson who gave it all he could in the closing laps to capture the $5,000 pay day. Terry Phillips, Chad Simpson and Ryan Gustin rounded out the top-five.
