Zach Latimer Wrecked Out of Autumn Colours Classic

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — Poised for a strong run, Zach Latimer saw his Autumn Colours Classic feature end sooner than he had originally envisioned.

Latimer started off the weekend fast by leading laps en route to placing third in the first qualifier. He then backed it up with a fifth in the second qualifier.

Jordan Latimer Takes Flight at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest

MILGROVE, Ontario — Jordan Latimer was headed for a strong run in the second feature at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest, when he’d take flight after contact on the frontstretch ending his night early.

Latimer started off the afternoon by qualifying ninth for the first 50-lap feature, dropping back a couple spots in the opening laps of the feature. He’d quickly begin to make up lost ground, returning to the top-10 by Lap 10, before involving an incident ahead of him to move up to ninth.

Restarting on the fifth row at Lap 34, he’d hold off the challengers around to cross the finish line eighth in the first feature.

Starting sixth for the second feature following an invert of the lead lap cars, he’d make contact in the early stages of the event with Dennis Cybalski while battling for third.

Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d look to move back forward when contact on a Lap 11 restart with a fellow competitor sent Latimer’s nose up in the air, before coming down hard and the No. 90 Super Stock sliding through the turn one grass. Latimer was uninjured, but that unfortunately brought an end to his Frostoberfest chances, credited with a  16th-place finish in the second feature.

As a result of the extent of the damage, Latimer will be unable to participate in this weekend’s Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway. The team will still be in attendance with Zach Latimer behind the wheel of his Ontario Legends Series entry.

Jordan Latimer Sees Velocity Weekend Cut Short by Mechanical Issues

INNISFIL, Ontario — After entering the Velocity 250 with confidence, things would not pan out as Jordan Latimer hoped.

He would start off the event strong, finishing fifth in his first heat. Though before the second qualifier, the team would run into mechanical issues that required their attention. They would work hard to try and have the car ready, just missing the green flag for the second qualifier.

The issues would remain, though, ultimately ending their weekend early without a chance to run Sunday’s feature.

Zach Latimer Shows Speed Before Mechanical Issues at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Racing his way into the top-10 in the Ontario Legends Series feature, Zach Latimer showed speed prior to mechanical issues taking him out of the running.

Continuing to gain experience as a rookie, Latimer took part in Sunset Speedway’s Friday practice prior to the Velocity 250 weekend, finding some speed late in the night. That carried over into Saturday, with Latimer being 14th quickest out of 35 cars at the end of the second session, just three tenths off of the leader.

The confidence showed in his first heat as he was able to score a fourth-place finish. He then ran up front once again in the second qualifier, running second until the car developed a loose condition off of the exit of the corner. Despite the ill-handling condition, he held on to finish sixth.

Starting 14th in the feature, he would make his way forward in the beginning stages, escaping the early incidents to break into the top-10. He was up to the eighth position by Lap 8, when the mechanical issues would strike.

“Off the restart, the drive shaft came loose due to the output shaft on the motor coming loose, ending our night early,” he said. “We were in the road to a top 10 finish for sure.”

Jordan Latimer Runs into Mechanical Issues at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Showing a lot of speed for the second straight appearance, Jordan Latimer would fail to finish the feature as a result of mechanical issues.

Latimer started off the night well, making a three-wide move during his first heat en route to scoring a second-place finish, just mere inches behind the race winner. He then backed it up with a fifth-place finish in the second qualifier.

Starting ninth in the feature, he began to make his way forward, moving up into the sixth spot by the ninth lap. However, his strong run came to an end on Lap 15 when he slowed with a mechanical problem. It turned out that a wiring issue would keep the No. 90 from contending on Saturday night.

Zach Latimer Goes Through Spin Cycle at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Zach Latimer would compete in his first ever Canadian Legends Nationals this past weekend at Sunset Speedway, but it would not go smoothly as hoped.

Following Saturday’s qualifying, Latimer would start deep in the field for the first feature, and experienced a rough beginning as he was caught up in an incident with another driver on Lap 2. Restarting from the tail of the field, he would begin to make up some ground through the pack, though ran into trouble with a spin in turn four on Lap 20.

Restarting once again at the tail of the field, he’d begin to make up ground once again, crossing the finish line in the 17th position.

As a result, he would be forced to the run b-main ahead of the second main event, which he would score a ninth-place finish.

Starting 19th for the second feature, he would look to make his way forward, though would come together with a fellow driver in turn two on Lap 13. Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d make his way up to 17th before the feature was called at just 17 laps of 30 complete due to rain.

Starting 12th in the feature, he would break into the top-10 by the first caution at Lap 15. Restarting on the fifth row, he would look to continue making ground.

Jordan Latimer Overcomes Adversity For Pair of Top-10’s at Sunset Speedway

Despite facing adversity in a couple different ways at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night, Jordan Latimer still put together a pair of top-10 finishes.

Setting the 16th quickest time in qualifying, he would start the feature from 11th following a series of post-qualifying technical inspection disqualifications. From there, he looked to move forward, battling Nick Goetz for 10th in the early stages. Unfortunately, contact happened in the process, resulting in a flat tire at Lap 8. The JL Motorsports got the tire changed quickly, with some help from Ridge Road Racing, returning to the field at the tail.

Restarting from the back of the field, Latimer began to make his way forward, back inside of the top-10 as the halfway mark. Restarting 10th following the third caution, he would pass Connor James for eighth, getting alongside Paul Maltese for seventh at Lap 22. Latimer was unable to complete the pass, ultimately fading in the final stretch to cross the finish line in ninth.

Starting seventh for the second 35-lap feature, he managed to avoid a wreck ahead of him at the halfway mark, running eighth with 24 laps on the board. He would be challenged for the spot, but managed to hold off the charge, getting alongside Billy Zardo for seventh instead. Latimer got the spot with three laps to go, crossing the finish line in seventh. It was discovered post-race by the JL Motorsports crew that the race had been tougher than they thought, with suspension damage sustained along the way.

Jordan Latimer Suffers Mechanical Failure at Sunset Speedway

Jordan Latimer looked poised to have another strong run at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night, when a mechanical failure would see his feature end early.

With the Sunset Speedway Late Models running a 60-lap main event instead of twin 35-lap features, they’d run a single heat to help set the starting line-up. He would put together a solid performance, scoring a third-place finish.

Come feature time, he’d find himself battling for eighth with Thayne Hallyburton in the early stages, until a pair of leaders made contact up ahead, causing a flat tire and caution. Restarting seventh, he’d battle with Taylor Holdaway for the position. The first few laps didn’t go as planned after the green flag, though, as he’d fall back to ninth by Lap 17. Unfortunately, the fade continued, as he’d run 12th by Lap 25.

He continued to run 12th, solidly quickly clicking off laps, before making his way down pit road under green at Lap 54. It was determined that a spark plug had come off the No. 90 Late Model, which was the reason for being down in horsepower. He’d be credited with an 18th-place finish.

Latimer will be back at Sunset Speedway on May 26 in hope of scoring his second top-five of the 2018 campaign.

Jordan Latimer Rebounds for Top-Five in Second Feature

After struggling a little in the first feature, the JL Motorsports team was able to rebound for a top-five in the second on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.

Racing on the 10-inch tire for the first time, the handling of the No. 90 Late Model was a little off in the first feature, seeing Latimer run mid-pack throughout en route to a 13th-place finish.

Making some adjustments before the second feature, Latimer quickly began to move up from the 13th starting spot to run eighth as of Lap 5. He would miss an incident at Lap 12, to move up to sixth under the third caution.  Although he dropped back to seventh on the initial restart, he’d avoid another accident with seven laps to go to run sixth.

He was then able to make a pass on the final restart, crossing the finish line in the fifth position.

Latimer will be back at Sunset Speedway this coming weekend, May 12, for the first 60-lap feature of the season.

Jordan Latimer’s Velocity 250 Ends Early Due to Crash

IMG_4646While Jordan Latimer started off his Velocity 250 run strong, a pair of incidents resulted in him having to pull into the pits before the completion of the event.

As noted, the JL Motorsports driver started off the weekend strong, finishing fifth in his first heat, before battling back and forth with Tom Walters for the lead in the second qualifier en route to a runner-up.

Starting up front for the feature, he would make his way up to fifth in the early stages, running there when the first caution flew at Lap 2.

Following the restart, he continued to move forward, getting alongside Gord Shepherd for third at Lap 11, but unable to complete the pass. From there, he continued to run fourth till he was able to pass Travis Hallyburton for third on Lap 21. He remained there until the second caution flew at Lap 24.

Restarting third, he ran behind the pair of leaders, before being challenged for the third spot. He was then passed by Travis Hallyburton on Lap 32, bumping him back to fourth. He would be challenged once again for position at Lap 37, resulting in contact three laps later that saw his fellow competitor go around. As an involved car, he was sent to the tail of the field.

Restarting last, he began to make his way back through the traffic until contact from Ernie Fumerton sent him around, causing rear-end damage to the No. 90 Late Model. The damage was significant enough that the team elected to pull behind the wall, done for the event. He was credited with a 16th-place finish.

Despite some frustrating moments, JL Motorsports leaves the 2017 campaign behind them full of smiles, following 17 top-10’s throughout the year and a seventh-place finish in the year-end standings.

Jordan Latimer Completes Season with Pair of Top-Fives

After going through an up-and-down season, from his first career feature victory to some frustrating nights, Jordan Latimer finished up on a high note with a pair of top-fives.

Latimer began the night well, qualifying fifth for the first 35-lap feature, and running sixth until the race’s lone caution flew on Lap 31. He’d battle hard on the restart, gaining a spot to cross the finish line in sixth.

The positive momentum carried into the second feature as he started third, battling with Travis Hallyburton for second in the early stages. He would come out on top, clearing Hallyburton on Lap 7. From there, he was able to close the gap between him and Maltese, riding the back bumper as he looked for a way by. He would make his move for the lead on Lap 24, taking the top spot a lap later.

His advantage did not last for long, though, as division champion Gord Shepherd passed him for the top spot with five laps to go. He continued to put up solid laps, though, and crossed the finish line in second.

Despite some frustrating moments, JL Motorsports leaves the 2017 campaign behind them full of smiles, following 17 top-10’s throughout the year and a top-10 points finish. Their official ranking in the standings will be confirmed by the track in the coming days.

Jordan Latimer Scores First Career Feature Victory

Everything came together on Saturday night for Jordan Latimer at Sunset Speedway, as the youngster scored his first career Late Model feature victory.

Latimer started off the night by qualifying 11th for the first 35-lapper, battling side-by-side in the early stages with Brittney Gresel. Unfortunately, the first half of the feature did not go as planned as he dropped back to 14th by the halfway mark. However, he’d avoid a spin on the restart to gain two spots, getting alongside Thayne Hallyburton for 11th with seven laps to go. He got the spot a lap later, prior to the next caution flying for a spin on the backstretch.

Restarting just outside the top-10, he got a good restart with five laps to go to cross the finish line in 10th.

Starting sixth in the second feature, Latimer moved up into fourth in the early stages, getting alongside Paul Maltese for third on Lap 5, and completing the pass a lap later. Latimer continued to run solidly in third throughout the event until a caution flew with five laps to go. On the restart, he fell back a spot to fourth, but the pair of leaders got together, allowing Latimer to move back up into second.

Restarting second, he was unable to pass the leader for the lead. However, in post-race technical inspection, his competitor was disqualified, handing the victory Latimer and company.

“It’s a good birthday present,” Jordan Latimer commented. “It’s been a long time coming, two years in the making. After last week’s fourth and a second, I figured we had a shot before the end of the year, and that was the goal coming into the year – to go out and get a win.”

Admittedly, with the chaos on track, Latimer said he was “looking forward to the end,” telling his spotter with five to go that “this is one of those races that we only did 30 laps.”

Jordan Latimer will return to Sunset Speedway on September 9 in hopes of scoring his 15th top-10 of the season.

Jordan Latimer Picks Up Top-Five Finish at Sunset Speedway

While it wasn’t the night JL Motorsports envisioned, they were able to leave Sunset Speedway with one top-10 finish.

After qualifying fifth for the first 35-lap feature on the night, he moved up into third in the early laps, running there till the first yellow flag waved at Lap 22. He would battle side-by-side with Billy Zardo on the restart, holding him off to remain third. He would ultimately fall back a couple spots, though, battling side-by-side with Thayne Hallyburton for fifth when the caution waved at Lap 26. As a result of going back a lap restart for the restart, Latimer was able to move back up to fourth.

Restarting fourth, he’d battle side-by-side with Thayne Hallyburton for the position all the way to the checkered flag, ultimately coming up short as he finished fifth.

Starting 10th in the second feature after the invert, he escaped the early pair of incidents without any damage to move up to seventh by the third lap.

Jordan Latimer Endures Pair of Rough Features at Sunset Speedway

After having everything go the way he wanted last weekend, the luck didn’t stick for the JL Motorsports representative this past Saturday at Sunset Speedway with a pair of finishes outside of the top-10.

Qualifying in the 15th position for the first 35-lap feature, he would catch a piece of the first lap incident down the backstretch, spinning around going into turn three. Fortunately, he was able to escape without much damage.

Restarting in the back half of the field, he would make up some ground to run 11th as of Lap 25. However, in the last couple of laps, he would lose two spots to cross the finish line in the 13th position.

Starting 13th for the second feature, he avoided an incident between Nick Goetz and Ernie Fumerton to move up two positions to run 11th with 26 laps to go.  He then avoided another incident on the restart to move up another spot. Restarting just inside of the top-10, he would move up to ninth with 16 laps to go, though ultimately fell back four positions to cross the finish line in 13th once again.

Jordan Latimer will return to Sunset Speedway on July 8 in hopes of scoring his seventh top-10 of the season.

Jordan Latimer Scores Three Top-10’s on Saturday Night at Sunset Speedway

The challenge of running three features on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway didn’t throw JL Motorsports off their game, as they were able to walk away with three top-10 finishes.

Following last week’s feature, Jordan Latimer started the first 35-lap affair from the 13th position. He began to make his way up from the green flag, escaping a first lap incident and making up ground to run eighth as of Lap 12. He’d avoid a spinning car on Lap 15 to move up another spot to seventh.

He would then move up another spot to sixth with 16 laps to go after a car ahead of him blew their motor, followed by moving up to fifth with a pass on the restart. The fourth caution then flew with 11 laps to go for one of the leaders having a flat tire, allowing Latimer to move up once again to fourth.

He would get a good restart, moving up to the third spot. He kept putting together solid lap times through the back end of the feature, ultimately crossing the finish line in fourth.

With last week’s feature made-up, he would lay down a lap of 15.279 seconds to qualify 10th for the second feature. Through the first half of the feature, he wouldn’t make up much ground, running 10th as of the first caution at Lap 23.

He was then able to avoid a spin ahead of him on the restart, moving up two spots to eighth. He got a good restart, moving up to seventh. However, he would be passed with four laps to go by Danny Benedict, resulting in Latimer crossing the finish line in eighth.

With the re-draw in-place for the final feature, Latimer would start seventh for the final feature on the night. He’d begin to move up quickly, getting alongside Billy Zardo for sixth at Lap 7, and passing him a lap later.  He would then get alongside Benedict for fifth at Lap 9, completing the pass two laps later.

The steady climb continued, as he’d get alongside Taylor Holdaway for fourth at Lap 16, and complete the pass a lap later. He would then break into the top-three on Lap 26, with a pass on Chris Morrow. Through the final laps, he ran solidly in third, till he was passed by Gord Shepherd coming to the line, resulting in a fourth-place finish.

With three solid finishes on Saturday night, Jordan Latimer has now posted six top-10’s to date, including three top-fives. He will hope to continue the solid performances on July 1.

Jordan Latimer Battles Hard Throughout Feature at Sunset Speedway

Starting mid-pack for the feature, Jordan Latimer unfortunately was unable to make up much ground before the checkered flag flew.

Under the new group car qualifying format, the JL Motorsports driver posted a lap to put him 17th on the board.

Starting the 35-lap feature in the 17th position, he’d drop back some positions, batting side-by-side with Ernie Fumerton for 19th at the halfway point. He’d lost the spot two laps later, with Ron Quesnelle getting alongside him for 20th. The first caution then flew with 14 laps remaining, giving Latimer an opportunity to head down pit road under the yellow flag for adjustments.

Restarting at the tail of the field, he would avoid a five-car wreck in turn one to move up some positions. From there on, he put together a solid final 13 laps en route to crossing the line in the 12th position.

The second feature was not run as a result of a steady shower falling shortly after intermission. As a result, the plan is to make up the feature on the next night of racing – meaning that they will run triple features.

Despite Saturday night not going as Latimer would’ve hoped, the year has seen some highlights with four top-10’s to date, including a third on opening night. He will hope to get back up front in the next event on June 24.

Jordan Latimer Scores Fourth Top-10 of 2017

Jordan Latimer kept the solid start to his 2017 season rolling as he posted his fourth top-10 of the season on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.

After posting a lap of 15.042 seconds, he’d start eighth for the first 35-lap feature on the night. He’d slip back to 10th in the first half of the event, followed by slipping another spot back to 11th by the fourth caution at Lap 21. After the restart, though, he began to make up some ground, running side-by-side with Billy Zardo for ninth. They’d run side-by-side till the fifth caution flew with 14 laps to go.

Restarting 10th, he’d gain one spot to ninth by the seventh caution with seven laps to go, getting alongside Thayne Hallyburton for eighth with three laps to go. He was able to complete the pass coming to the line, finishing eighth for his fourth top-10 of 2017.

With the re-draw in place for the second feature, he’d start from the fourth position. The feature didn’t start off as well as planned, with Latimer slipping back to sixth prior to the first caution at Lap 9. The leader would then jump the next two restarts, causing him to be sent to the back and bump Latimer up to fifth for the restart.

Restarting inside the top-five, he’d battle side-by-side with Taylor Holdaway for fifth, slipping back to seventh by the next caution at Lap 18 for an incident in turn two. Following the restart, he’d slip back some more positions, falling back to ninth. He was then involved in an incident coming to the checkered flag, resulting in a 16th-place finish.

With four top-10’s so far, he currently sits seventh in the standings, just 19 points out of the top-five.

He knows his team can get the job done if given the chance, and will try and make it happen in the next NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park Late Model event on Saturday, June 17.

Jordan Latimer Scores Third Top-10 of 2017

Despite battling some adversity, Jordan Latimer was able to put together another solid performance on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.

Latimer kicked off the night on a solid note, putting in another impressive time trial effort with the third quickest lap time at 15.140 seconds. Surrounded by veterans and past feature winners, the third generation racer dropped back in the beginning stages, eventually dropping back to ninth by Lap 27.  He’d then hold off Billy Zardo in the final laps to cross  the finish line in ninth.

With hopes of a stronger run for the second feature, Latimer drew the eighth starting spot in the re-draw. He’d keep himself solidly  in contention, battling side-by-side with last year’s division champion Gord Shepherd for ninth at Lap 7.  He’d fair well, remaining there till the first caution at Lap 13.

He’d get a solid restart, though fell back two spots to 11th as of the next caution of the event at Lap 23.  With a tire going down, he’d continue to fight hard but ultimately crossed the finish line just outside of the top-10.

With a seventh and third on opening night, Latimer knows his team can get the job done if given the chance. He’ll try and make it happen in the next NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park Late Model event on Sunday, May 28.  Set to begin at 3pm EST, it will serve as the make-up for the rain-out on May 6.
