Racers prepared for track’s crown jewel event


A total of 128 entries were on hand for the Jackson 100 Tune Up event Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway.

Nineteen E-Z Lift Super Late Models took to the track, making their final preparations before this weekend’s crown jewel event for the 37th annual Jackson 100.

Cody Mahoney took his No. 4 entry to Victory Lane for the third time this season at the speedway where he has started only four races as of late in the E-Z Lift Super Late Model division.

“If we could make the Jackson it would be pretty special,” Mahoney said. “I really like racing that race.”

Mahoney aims to make his third straight Jackson 100 appearance.

Steve Casebolt, Jeremy Hines, Chad Stapleton and Hudson O’Neal rounded-out the top five behind Mahoney who drives for Bowman Motorsports based out of Seymour.

Hines and Stapleton both look to make the third Jackson 100 start of their careers this weekend.

Hines of Seymour and Stapleton of Edinburgh are both regular competitors at Brownstown.

Marty O’Neal picked up his third win of the season in the P3 Graphix Indiana Pro Late Model Series finishing ahead of Seymour’s Tyler Cain.

O’Neal’s most recent win at Brownstown was June 25.

Derek Groomer returned to Brownstown in winning fashion as he picked up the feature win in the UMP Modified division.

Groomer scored a couple of wins early in the season at Brownstown but has traveled to other tracks throughout the summer months competing for national points.

Seymour’s Jamey Wilson bested the competition in the Woolston Automotive Super Stock division with his fifth win of the season and further stretching his points lead.

North Vernon’s Troy Clark powered his way to the win in the Staff Management Pure Stock division after starting 19th. This marked Clark’s second win of the season at Brownstown.
