Runs Up Front Early; Finishes Tenth in Toyota Knoxville 50
6, 2018) With Saturday's rain-out of the 'Ralph Latham
Memorial' at Florence (KY) Speedway, the #12 team entered one lone
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event over the weekend on Friday,
May 4 at the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee.
A stellar 28 car field assembled at the 1/3-mile oval to vie for
the $12,000 winner's check in the annual 'Toyota Knoxville 50.'
Jason Jameson clicked off the fastest lap overall during qualifying
to earn Fast Time honors before placing second in heat race action.
Jason had then climbed up to second in the 50-lap feature event
before suffering a flat tire on lap six. The Lawrenceburg, Indiana
ace then rebounded from the tail to salvage a tenth place effort
in the Volunteer State. Complete results from "The Taz"

Takes Checkers at Eldora; Comes Up Light at Scales...
29, 2018) Jason Jameson and the JRR team invaded the famed
Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on Saturday evening, April 28
for a $5,000 to win American Late Model Series (ALMS) showdown.
Jason posted the quickest lap overall during the qualifying session
to earn Fast Time honors before scoring the victory in heat race
action. After starting the 25-lapper from the outside of the front
row, Jason appeared to roll to his first feature win of the 2018
racing season and a very big victory over Nick Hoffman, Devin Gilpin,
Jimmy Mars, and Kody Evans. However, his #12 Swartz racecar weighed
in a mere four pounds light at the scales in post-race inspection,
which unfortunately disqualified the Lawrenceburg, Indiana driver
and relegated him to twenty-fourth in the final finishing order.

22, 2018) The Justin Rattliff Racing (JRR) team and driver
Jason Jameson were back in Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series
action over the April 20-21 weekend at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction
City, Kentucky and Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. On Friday
night in a $4,000 to win shootout, Jason ran into mechanical issues
during qualifying before advancing up to second in his B-Main and
fifth in the 40-lap feature. He finished behind only victor Michael
Chilton, Eddie Carrier, Jr., Aaron Ridley, and Eric Wells. At Florence
on Saturday evening in the $5,000 to win 'Spring 50,' Jason qualified
second quickest in Group B, won the fast dash, and was running inside
of the top five in the main event before a broken oil pump belt
on lap 31 relegated him to a disappointing twenty-second place effort.

(JRR) team ventured south to the Volunteer State of Tennessee on
April 13-14 for a pair of Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series
showdowns. On Friday night in a $5,000 to win program at the bad-fast
Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee, Jason won his B-Main in
preliminary action and was one of the fastest racecars on the track
in the A-Main. He went for a spin early in the feature before battling
back inside of the top five of the running order. Unfortunately,
a late flat tire helped relegate the Lawrenceburg, Indiana driver
to a tenth place showing at the drop of the checkered flag.
At Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee on Saturday evening,
the Spring Nationals tour presided over the annual 'Scott Sexton
Memorial,' which boasted a hefty $10,052 payday. Jason knocked down
the quickest time in Group A during the qualifying session before
running second in his loaded heat race. After starting the 52-lap
headliner from the inside of the third row, Jason slipped back a
few spots and eventually wound up eighth in the final finishing
order. Full results from the doubleheader weekend can be accessed
