The $3,000 win saw Jackson Jr. having to fend off advances from a hard-charging Jesse Stovall.

“Lapped traffic got pretty tricky, and Jesse (Stovall) was able to slip past for a lap there, but luckily I was able to get back to the lead,” Jackson Jr. said. “It was a fun race though, and it was great to get our second win of the year. The rest of the weekend didn’t go as well as we had hoped, but it still wasn’t terrible. We’ve got another busy weekend of racing coming up, so hopefully we can continue to build on what we learned last weekend.”
