Blake Jones Gears Up For Summer Shootout and Thursday Thunder

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:June 9, 2008

Bandolero Young Guns Racer Looking For Two Championships in Two States

Most 11-year-olds cannot wait for the school season to end so they can go play with their friends throughout the summer months. Blake Jones, on the other hand, couldn’t wait until the school season concluded so he could focus his attention on his #80 Mountain Dew Bandolero by racing it across the south at numerous tracks.

Jones has put down the pencil, put away the book bag and picked up a steering wheel as he will attempt to race for two separate Bandolero Young Guns championships during the summer - the Summer Shootout Series at Lowe’s Motor Speedway (NC) and the Thursday Thunder Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway (GA).

To prepare for the Shootout, Jones has spent time at multiple tracks throughout the first half of the year, including racing in May at Lowe’s during NASCAR Pole Night. Jones raced from the back of the pack, up to fourth, which showing he will be a force to be reckoned with during the Shootout.

“It showed us we have a good car for the Summer Shootout,” said Jones of his run on Pole Night. “It showed that we can run behind the #19 (Chad Finchum) and I think we can beat him.

“The Summer Shootout brings out the best of the best. I think we can go down there, tweak on the car a bit and get some victories.”

Prior to the first Shootout race of the season, the Thursday Thunder Series kicked off June 5th on Atlanta’s quarter-mile track. Jones started from the pole, but dropped back after contact with another car. He was able to keep his car under control and rally for a third-place finish.

“I went into the corner and the outside car put his car just out in front of me,” explained Jones. “I bumped it and it wobbled the car. I went back to sixth and worked my way back up to third at the end of the race.”

Jones made the switch from the Bandolero Bandits division to the older, more experienced Young Guns division at the beginning of the 2008 season. He hopes to continue his strong early-season success throughout the year.

“We made the swap this year from Bandits to the Young Guns division. Since then, we have been able to go to victory lane at Nashville (TN), OCR (NC) and Riverview (TN). At all our races this year that we have won our Mountain Dew Bandolero ran awesome. We have never had much luck at Atlanta, so we hope our good run during the first Thursday Thunder as well as our solid finish during the NASCAR Pole Night at Lowe’s Motor Speedway is a great sign for our title bids during the summer.”

The Thursday Thunder Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway (GA) runs every Thursday for 10 weeks from June 5th until August 7th, while the Summer Shootout Series at Lowe’s Motor Speedway (NC) runs every Tuesday for 10 weeks straight from June 10th until August 12th.
