Jordan Latimer Scores Top-10 at Sunset Speedway

On Saturday night at Sunset Speedway, Jordan Latimer led some laps en route to posting a top-10 finish in the pair of Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park Late Model features.

Starting 13th in the first 35-lap feature, he would make his way up to 11th by the first caution with 23 laps to go. From there on, he would battle hard, but was unable to make up much ground en route to posting a 12th-place finish.

Starting on the front row for the second feature, he grabbed the early lead ahead of the field, leading the opening six laps before being challenged by eventual feature winner Rick Spencer-Walt. The battle wouldn’t go as Latimer wanted, as he’d fall back to third by Lap 13. He continued to battle hard, though, remaining there till he was passed by a pair of cars on Lap 25, bumping him back to fifth.

He would battle with Nick Goetz for the spot, with Goetz getting it a couple laps later and bringing another competitor through to bump Latimer back to seventh with five laps to go. He would get passed for the seventh spot, and battled hard with Ernie Fumerton for the eighth position till the caution flew for an incident ahead of him. Restarting in seventh, he battled hard to the checkered flag, crossing the finish line in seventh.

Jordan Latimer will return to Sunset Speedway on August 26 in hopes of scoring his 11th top-10 of the season.

Jordan Latimer Posts Pair of Top-10’s at Sunset Speedway

Battling hard throughout the pair of 35-lap features, Jordan Latimer posted a pair of top-10’s on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.

The first feature saw Latimer start upfront, running sixth as of the first caution on Lap 6. He then avoided an incident between the pair of leaders at Lap 10 to move up to the fourth position. Restarting inside the top-five with 26 laps to go, he battled side-by-side with Thayne Hallyburton for third, eventually falling in line in fourth at Lap 15 before the caution flew once again two laps later.

Restarting halfway through the field, he ran fourth till the third caution flew on Lap 18 for a quick spin deep in the field. Another restart, and Latimer kept himself up front, battling side-by-side with Thayne Hallyburton for third. The battle did not go his way, as he eventually fell back to sixth with eight laps to go. Unable to make up any ground through the final laps, he scored a sixth-place finish.

Starting 10th in the second 35-lap feature, he dropped back to the 12th position in the early laps, though made his way back up to 11th by Lap 23. In the final stages, he was able to make one more pass, crossing the finish line in the 10th position.

Jordan Latimer will return to Sunset Speedway on July 22 in hopes of scoring his 10th 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. He would avoid a spin ahead of him on Lap 5 to move up another spot to sixth. Restarting just outside of the top-five, he continued to run sixth, battling side-by-side with Danny Benedict at the halfway mark. He would clear Benedict for the spot at Lap 19, remaining sixth as the caution flew once again.

Restarting just outside of the top-five, he remained sixth, poised for a strong finish. However, contact happened over the course of the run, resulting in a broken suspension part, with Latimer rolling to a stop in turns three and four with seven laps to go, ending his feature early.

Jordan Latimer will return to Sunset Speedway on July 22 in hopes of scoring his eighth top-10 of the season.

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.
