April 27, 2019 - TJR Soars to Third Win of the Season at I-44
With his original plans to race on dirt thwarted by Mother Nature, Tony Jackson Jr. decided to enter a pavement race on Saturday night at I-44 Speedway in his Merrill Self Storage #56 Willard Quarries/ Hassett Truck Body Repair/ Hamke Race Car/ Toyota Late Model.

His decision paid dividends as he raced to his second-straight win at the 3/8-mile, high-banked oval.

“With the rain knocking out the races we had planned to enter, we decided to go pavement racing at I-44 Speedway again on Saturday. We picked right up where we left off there a few weeks ago and got the win in the 100 lapper,” Jackson Jr. said. “The car was really good, and I found my way to the lead around lap 60. Hopefully Mother Nature will play nice this weekend, so that we can go after a couple more dirt wins.”

Ozark Pro Late Model competition brought Tony Jackson Jr. to I-44 Speedway (Lebanon, Missouri) on Saturday evening. Qualifying positioned him fifth on the grid for 100-lap, main event. Tony progressively worked his way forward through the pack before taking control of the lead just past the halfway mark. From there he cruised to the win, which marked his third overall of the 2019 season.

Cole Williams, Terry Limberopoulos, Jake Piel and Tim Swearengin completed the Top 5.

April 6, 2019 - TJR Wins Nature's Pantry 100 at I-44 Speedway
There was no rust for Tony Jackson Jr. to shake off in his return to pavement racing on Saturday night. For the first time in over five years he returned to his racing roots. The end result was a trip to Victory Lane on Saturday night at I-44 Speedway in his Merrill Self Storage #56 Willard Quarries/ Hassett Truck Body Repair/ Hamke Race Car/ Toyota Late Model.

His second overall victory of 2019, and first on pavement, was worth $2,000 in the Nature’s Pantry 100.

“I can’t begin to describe how much fun I had on Saturday night and how many memories it brought back,” Tony Jackson Jr. said. “I started my career on pavement and spent several years there before moving to the dirt side. I hadn’t run pavement since 2013 or so, and I wasn’t totally sure what to expect, but this new Hamke Race Car was phenomenal. We got to the lead early and from there I knew I just had to do my job. A special thanks to everyone who supports this program. It’s going to be a fun year mixing some pavement races in with the dirt.”

The Nature’s Pantry 100 was held on Saturday evening at I-44 Speedway (Lebanon, Missouri). A $2,000 top prize was posted for the Ozark Pro Late Model division. While, Tony qualified eighth, he quickly worked his way to the lead in the 100-lap affair. In fact, he was already out front by lap 18. Once in the lead he cruised to the win, which came over teammate Raymond Merrill. Tim Swearengin, Joe Ross, and Terry Limberopoulos completed the Top-5 finishers.
