Mike Marlar set a new track record in Miller Welders Time Trials on Friday Night at Brownstown Speedway. Marlar and twelve other drivers broke Steve Francis’ previous track record of 13.546 seconds, which was set back in April of 2006. Marlar’s record setting time was 13.263 seconds. A total of 47 cars were on hand for the 35th Annual Jackson 100 sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

 

On Saturday Night, Marlar, Steve Casebolt, Jonathan Davenport, and Scott Bloomquist will be the pole-sitters for the four 10-lap heat races. The top four finishers from each heat will advance to the main event. There will also be two 12-lap B-mains on Saturday. Capping off the night will be the $20,000-to-win 35th Annual Jackson 100.

 

Jimmy Owens and Don O’Neal come into the event separated by just 25 points. Owens will start third in the fourth heat and O’Neal, the defending Jackson 100 winner, will start third in heat number three.

 

A total of five previous Jackson 100 winners are participating this weekend. The illustrious group of previous winners consists of 4-time winners, Scott Bloomquist and Don O’Neal; 2x winner, John Gill; and winners Davey Johnson and Earl Pearson Jr.

 

Activities will get underway Saturday afternoon at 3:30 PM with a Dirt Racing Outreach Service in the Pavilion behind the main grandstand. Following the DRO service will be a driver’s autograph session at 4:30 PM. Action on the track gets underway at 6 PM.

 

In preliminary action, Mike Marlar set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 47 entrants, with a lap of 13.263 seconds. Jonathan Davenport set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 13.370 seconds.
