Jakubczyk wins Factory Tracks Midwest Series Rd3
Last weekend was the third round of the Factory Tracks Midwest Series at Pheasant Run Raceway. This fine, privately ran facility is located on the owner’s family farm in rural Michigan. The track conditions are a bit of a departure from most modern tracks, featuring a loosely packed surface with large jumps and bumps, which produce a lot of flying soil and excitement. In the always competitive 2wd open buggy class, Kyosho’s Jason Jakubczyk secured the pole position after three rounds of points style qualifying. In the main, the TQ man was able to get out to a good lead as the rest of the field fell into disarray. Jakubczyk was driving quickly but casually for most the race, until Mike Wells came through the field and began to turn up the heat. It came down to the final lap, and Wells was making some desperate moves to catch up to the leader. Jason managed to hang on for the victory, Wells would finish second, and FTMS organizer Al Horne would finish third. We’re now halfway through the series, and the points are adding up. The next event is August 4th at Dales RC in Genesse, MI.
