Jimco’s Presence on the Podium Continues at SNORE’s Motion Tire 300
Ronny Wilson takes home his second 1st place trophy of the year in his #138, while his son, Brad, adds a 3rd place trophy to his podium collection. The Wilson Motorsports entry #138 was piloted by Ronny, Randy & Brian Wilson and the Wilson Motorsports #139 was piloted by Brad Wilson and Kyle Quin. Brad Wilson’s Jimco Class-1 threw down the second-fastest lap time of the class. The fastest lap time of the class was set by Ronny’s car, which averaged a stunning 51 mph average over the brutal dusty terrain in Ridgecrest, California.
Podium finishes in the 10-car class featured a 3rd place finish by #1053 of Fred Hatch, and a 2nd place finish by the #1056 of Johnny Buss.
Buss’s unmistakable purple and yellow single-seat Class-10 was described as “a rocket,” as it carved through the course, like a hot knife through butter, moving from the 20th position to the second position. More impressive still; this was only the second race in the new #1056… and this Jimco clocked the fastest class 10 time and the third fastest lap time of all classes. Johnny includes the Jimco prep and chase team to much of his success in the Motion Tire 300.
Jimco’s family presence was represented not only by the Wilson’s, but with the father daughter team of Will J and Emily Staats in the #42 Jimco Trophy Truck. This race marked Emily’s first Trophy Truck drive who finished a respectable 4th place. Emily is a previous Class-1300 Champion, and possesses some intimidation as a pilot in the TT class. She will be a driver to keep an eye on.
