The Word From
Jake: Dunlop Racing “A bittersweet night for me in the #8. Andrew Edwards, my spotter made great calls for me all night, and after a rough first half of the season I just tried to minimise risk and ensure that we raced cleanly. Unfortunately in both oval races we were taken out of great positions by incidents we had nothing to do with, but fortunately, in the final double points race at Monza I managed P4, and at least gather some valuable points. Really excited for the last two rounds in the Dunlop Commodore, and a huge thanks to Dunlop and to the whole team at Brad Jones Racing for the continued support."
Madison: Cub Cadet Mowers “A Round to forget unfortunately for me. Michigan Oval and Monza were always going to be a hard night. I didn't do a good enough job in qualifying being at the back end of the Top 10 at both tracks. Michigan was looking solid in both races running in competitive positions challenging for wins but unfortunately we got caught up in 2 separate crashes outside of our control which put us way further down the order than what we were capable of.
Monza was more of the same. I started P7 in the Cub Cadet Mowers Commodore and worked my way up the field to P4 challenging for the podium. Our race pace particularly on old tyres was super strong and the race was coming together nicely. However, into Turn 4 towards the end, I just nudged Jarrod Filsell (Redbull) late in the braking zone pushing him wide which backed up the train unfortunately resulting in being turned around out of position 4 falling back down the field to the back of the 10. We recovered to P7 to at least finish where we started and limit the damage done points wise.
We'll keep working hard to learn from it and ensure that in the next two rounds we maximise championship points."
Jackson: R&J Batteries “Tonight was one of those nights of what could have been. We had really strong pace qualifying top 5 and top 10 in both races and winning the Seiko shootout. Race 1, unfortunately I got taken out when another car hit the wall and that ended my race. Race 2, we set ourselves up nice coming into the final corner to sling shot past for the win and unfortunately another car came down and hit me off the track and that unfortunately put us back to 8th. Last race I knew my race pace was really strong even though I started a bit further back then we should have been but then unfortunately on the first corner I got spun around and that put me back to 22nd. I managed to climb back up to 12th to finish the race. A difficult night but next week we will push on with some better results!”
