Devin Jones Earns Nickname “Mr. June” After Memorable Month of Racing

Mooresville, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:June 30, 2008

Legends Racer Turns Heads With Two Wins & Five Top-Five Finishes Across the South

Former driver Harry Gant was nicknamed “Mr. September” in 1991 after a successful month of racing in what was then known as the NASCAR Winston Cup and Busch Series. Four wins in the senior division and two in the junior league put his name in the record books as one of the best throughout the span of a month.

At 13 years old, Devin Jones wasn’t even born when Gant’s accomplishments earned him the famous nickname. However, Jones’ performance in the Legends Young Lions and Semi-Pro divisions over the past 30 days might have earned him a new nickname - “Mr. June.”

Sure, Jones didn’t win six races in two different divisions, but his consistent top-five performances in the Young Lions division at Lowe’s Motor Speedway (SC) in the Summer Shootout Series coupled with a Semi-Pro (and overall) victory at Anderson Motor Speedway (SC) has placed him firmly at the top of the performance chart during June. All that was remaining was a second trip to victory lane at Anderson to complete the month and that is exactly what the young racer did Friday night at the South Carolina oval, by taking the overall and Semi-Pro victory.

“We started on the pole Friday night, which was better than last week,” said Jones. “I led the race until about lap 11 when the second-place car passed us coming out of turn four. I wasn’t concerned about it because the car was so good. The next lap I pulled it to the bottom and passed him back going down the straightaway. We held onto first the rest of the race and had a comfortable lead at the finish. It’s good to get overall wins because it gives you great points.”

After the month of May, where Jones saw multiple finishes outside the top 10, the California native racer is charged up over his performance throughout the month of June.

“It’s cool to get two wins in a row at Anderson,” said Jones. “Two weeks ago we made some changes to the car that made it very comfortable and easy to drive. Since then, the car has been on a rail and we just have it figured out.

“This has created some great momentum for us throughout the month of June that we plan to continue for the rest of the summer.”

Besides the victories at Anderson, Jones’ has the best average finish of all drivers competing in the Young Lions division at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in the tough Summer Shootout Series. His results have placed him on top of the leader board as of July 1st.
