mowa_2014_logo(Bill W) June 10, 2015 – Jerrod Hull won the last winged sprint car feature at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, Illinois in 1999.  He will return there with the MOWA series this Sunday night.  Saturday night, the series will be at Route 45 Raceway in Flora, Illinois.  Last Thursday night was a night to forget for the Sikeston, Missouri driver as he would checker 13th in Jacksonville.

Jerrod drew a starting spot outside row two for the MOWA show at Jacksonville Speedway last Thursday.  “The track was slick,” he says.  “We were the last class of the three to run.  It was up top on the fence.  We were able to get to third right away.  We were a little loose, but I was trying to maintain third.  We would be starting eighth or ninth in the feature that way.”

Unfortunately, he would uncharacteristically find the wall.  “I pushed it a little too hard and got into the fence in three and four,” says Jerrod.  “When the right rear got into it, it was so hard that it got the right front into it too.  That cut the right rear down.  You’re not able to change tires, so we were done.”

The DNF meant Jerrod would start 22nd in the main event.  “They reworked the track before the midget feature and they had an awesome race,” he says.  “By the time we got out there though, you could feel little pieces of rubber in the track on the first lap.  By lap five or six, it was rubber all the way around the bottom.”

He would end up advancing nine spots to checker 13th.  “We were able to pass two cars at the beginning, and a few cars fell out,” says Jerrod.  “We had a really good car, there just wasn’t a track to be able to get around anyone.  We ended up running 13th, and that’s the problem when you start in the back on one of those tracks.  It was my fault in the heat race and that put us behind.  What a night!”

Jerrod also picked up a victory last season in Flora.  He’s hoping to pull the double this weekend, and is looking forward to Belleville.  “There have only been two wing races there that I know of,” he says.  “The All Stars tried to race there a few years ago and got rained out after qualifying.  We’ve been able to win the other two they’ve had there, so hopefully, that luck will be with us this weekend.”

Jerrod and the #12 team would like to thank: Midland Performance, Super Shox, Sebastian Sand Blasting & Powder Coating, Inc., Chuck’s Small Engines, Don Hamilton, HRP, Lighthouse Christian Center, Rockstar Graphics, King Racing Products, DMI, KSE Performance Products, Hoosier Tire, Simpson, Weld, Automotive Machine, Maxim and Heartland Trailer Manufacturing.
