Jake Crum Wins Again at Coastal Plains Raceway

Jacksonville, S.C. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Team Crum Racing
Statesville, NC

In what has already been a phenomenal start to the 2008 season, Jake “The Snake” Crum returned to the site of his first late model win on Saturday night. He brought home his second victory of the season at Coastal Plains Raceway in Jacksonville, SC. This win made him the first repeat winner in the UARA-Stars Late Model Series this year.

Once again, rain played a small part in the day. But luckily, it all moved out by early afternoon and only washed out one practice session. Once practice got going, Jake ran the quickest lap times, coming within two tenths of a second off of the track record. Jake ended up with the second quickest lap at the end of the qualifying session.

The weather continued to cooperate, making it a perfect night for racing. Jake started the race in second and in the outside lane where he was freight-trained on the inside at the start of the race. Once he finally found a spot to settle in, he found himself back in the sixth position. Jake set his focus on making his way back to the front. He was able to wheel his way through the traffic up to second. Following a restart midway through the race, Jake fell back to fifth after realizing a driver error.

“I left the brake fans on,” explained the young driver. “It cooled the tires off too much and I just slid back.”

Jake was able to get his tires warmed up and once again, started picking off cars one by one. He made his way back up to the third position. While Jake was riding comfortably in third, trying to find a way to get to the lead, the leaders got into each other and wrecked. He was able to get around them without any damage and pull off the win.

“I really couldn’t ask for a better season,” commented the driver of the No. 1 Made in Multiples/Fatz Café Chevrolet. “I am just having such a great time this year. I really need to thank all of my sponsors and my crew. Just everyone that has stuck with me.”

This is Jake’s second win at Coastal Plains Raceway and his third career late model win. Jake continues to lead the series by 60 points. Next up for Team Crum Racing is Bristol Motor Speedway on July 5, 2008.
