Zach Latimer, meanwhile, continued to find more speed in the No. 47 Ontario Legends Series entry, driving from the tail of the field to finish 13th in the first feature. He was set to start 13th in the second feature, but ignition problems forced him behind the wall before the green flag.

Latimer Brothers Kick Off Season with Strong Start at Peterborough Speedway

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — After a long busy off-season, the Latimer brothers were able to get their season started at Peterborough Speedway on Saturday night.

Jordan Latimer’s first outing this season with his Late Model proved to be successful. He placed fourth in his first qualifying race despite being stuck on the outside, followed by picking up the checkered flag in the second. He then had a strong run in the feature, finishing in the runner-up spot despite having to restart from the tail of the field twice.

Zach Latimer’s first outing with his Legend did not start off smoothly, with contact with the wall during practice. The team worked hard to make the necessary repairs, allowing Latimer to run both of his heats with finishes of ninth and eighth. The rookie made the most of the feature, gaining experience with each lap on the track and making some passes en route to a 15th-place finish.

Jordan Latimer Focused on Getting to Victory Lane at Sunset Speedway

COLDWATER, Ontario — After spending last season at the beach, Jordan Latimer will return to his home track, Sunset Speedway, for the 2019 race season. He will once again be competing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I Limited Late Models.

“This year we’re going out to get wins,” he commented. “We’re not worried about points or anything like that to start off. This will be the last year with this car so we are going to do what we can to get a couple wins before we send it off to a new series.”

Latimer knows returning back to Sunset Speedway won’t be easy, with the level of competition the Innisfil, Ontario track is expecting this season.

“We all know the competition is going to be great like it always is,” he said. “We have a couple guys with new cars for this season and a lot of teams have really stepped up there game over the off season so it’s sounding like a good year ahead.”

Latimer is coming off a season where he took a different approach, switching over to Sauble Speedway a couple weeks into the 2018 campaign. He wouldn’t be able to reach victory lane, but was able to have some top-five runs throughout the year.

“Last year, we mostly ran Sauble and came so close a number of times to getting a win up at the beach,” he commented. “So we’re hoping to keep the ball rolling into more great runs like we were having.”

Latimer’s last full-time season at Sunset Speedway in 2017 saw him surprise some people, scoring nine top-five’s and 17 top-10 finishes, including his first career feature victory.

“2017 was the last time we ran the full Sunset Speedway schedule and at the end of the year I felt like our team was on fire,” he commented. “We showed up and placed in the top-three the last month of season and we didn’t really get the new updates we did sorted out in the short time we were at Sunset last year. So we are hoping to get stuff rolling quick in the start of the season.”

JL Motorsports’ marketing partners for the 2019 campaign will be announced at a later date.

Jordan Latimer Scores Top-Five Finish at Sauble Speedway

SAUBLE BEACH, Ontario — Running up front at Sauble Speedway, Jordan Latimer held on to score a top-five finish on Saturday night.

Qualifying sixth for the first feature, he’d fall back through the event a little, crossing the finish line with an eighth-place finish. Starting up front for the second feature, he’d battle up front throughout the event, holding off a late-charge from behind to score a third-place finish.

It marks a solid turn-around after the team experienced a string of bad luck throughout the summer of the schedule as they return back to their flavor of top-five finishes that they started off their campaign at the beach.

Latimer will get his next chance at Sauble Speedway for a strong run on September 8 as that marks the next night of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model competition.

JL Motorsports is proud to be supported by DDC General Contracting, RIM Chassis, KICX 106, 104.1 The Dock, WIX Filters, Creechers Design, Kruger’s Electrical Service, Tax-$mart, Marvin Freiburger & Sons Inc., and Hazlett Trucking.

Jordan Latimer Hopeful to Put Bad Luck Behind Him

SAUBLE BEACH, Ontario — After having a couple rough weeks at Sauble Speedway, JL Motorsports is hopeful that the end of July will bring a strong run to the end of the season.

Last weekend, Jordan Latimer did not have the night he was expecting as the team struggled to find a handle on the No. 90 Late Model. They didn’t give up, though, as ‘The Little Gambler’ was running fourth in the second feature when he got the toe knocked out, fading back to eighth by the checkered flag.

The struggles of last Saturday caught many by surprise as the team had shown the capability of winning, virtue of leading laps a couple weeks prior, along with a string of top-five performances. That’s why despite the recent bad luck, Latimer is still holding faith that the team will get it turned around as soon as possible.

Latimer will get his next chance at Sauble Speedway for a strong run on July 28 as that marks the next night of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model competition.

JL Motorsports is proud to be supported by DDC General Contracting, RIM Chassis, KICX 106, 104.1 The Dock, WIX Filters, Creechers Design, Kruger’s Electrical Service, Tax-$mart, Marvin Freiburger & Sons Inc., and Hazlett Trucking.
