(August 12, 2022) Larry Jackson and the #84 O’Neil Electric Dodge team are ready to hit the dirt at Ohsweken Speedway near Hamilton, Ontario this coming week for the first ever NASCAR Pinty’s Series race on dirt. Coming off an eighth-place finish at GP3R Jackson is strong and ready for his first ever race on a dirt oval.
Jackson is looking forward to the challenge this event will bring especially with some of the tough competition coming North for the race. A couple of U.S. based drivers may be joining the field, but the #84 O’Neil Electric racing team is in good spirits and are feeling ready after their great showing in the last event.
Qualifying for the race will be in the form of heat races which should Jackson an edge. Not always the best at single lap qualifying, Jackson excels in race form, and this will provide him the opportunity to achieve a good starting position. Jackson and the team have anticipated this event all season and are ready to kick things off and be a part of this first ever Pinty’s race on a dirt oval.
Larry Jackson Quote:
“We’ve waited a long time for this event and it’s finally here. It should be a fantastic atmosphere and I’m looking forward to seeing how our car stacks up. I feel good about our preparations. I’m definitely going to get as many laps in as possible during practice and keep learning with every lap. I think having three stages will allow us to adjust on the car a couple of times and really be in good shape for the second half of the race”
