Jason Garver Dominates Summer Slam at North Florida Speedway
8/5/2020 by Justin Kunstbeck
As August start to begin in 2020, Summer Slam at North Florida Speedway was a huge success. The fourth installment for the Dirts4Racing Street Stocks would be joined by Pure (Thunder) Stocks, C-Class (602) Late Models, E-Modifieds, Open-Wheel Modifieds, Late Models, and Box Stocks (Gladiators). Each night brought a good a field of cars for each division. All of the event’s Street Stocks making final preparations before the 8th Annual Street Stock Nationals at Whynot Motorsports Park. Each night featured five classes.
Night One showcasing the Street Stocks and Pure Stocks as well as the C-Class Late Models, E-Modifieds, and Box Stocks. The Street Stocks and Pure Stocks would only be completing their heat races while the other three divisions would put on a full show. The C-Class Late Models produced a lot of battles midway through the pack with a battle for second place as Nevin Gainey would have a very prominent lead early on in the race. The E-Modifieds division was dominated by Racin Jason Garver in both the Heat Race and A-Main with Garver also being the Hard Charger in the Feature. The Box Stock division is known for always bringing excitement to North Florida Speedway, and this night was not any different. Buddy Spradley would start pole, and finish exactly where he started. Runner-up finisher Johnny Pendarvis would receive Hard Charger for the division after advancing eight positions.
Night Two would also be a night to remember. With added entries in the Street Stocks and Pure Stocks from the previous night, this would make for an even more exciting night of racing. Tonight’s action would also be joined by a full show for the Late Models, Open-Wheel Modifieds, and a return of the Box Stocks. The Box Stock division would also see an increase of drivers for the night’s festivities. After three heat races, and quite a lengthy feature event, it became one of the most interesting features of the night for every single one of the fifteen laps of the A-Main event. Payne Pickles would end up taking the win on Night Two for the Box Stocks. Racin Jason Garver would once again show off his talents as he wins in both the Open-Wheel Modifieds and the Dirts4Racing Street Stocks. The Silent Assassin Karlin Ray would take the win in the Pure Stock division with Nevin Gainey once again grabbing the win in the Late Models.
The events at North Florida Speedway would only be a preview for what comes next later in the season. Not only will the Street Stocks be participating at the 8th Annual Street Stock Nationals at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi, but a larger show for multiple divisions may be in story with Dirts4Racing. Stay tuned to Facebook and the Dirts4Racing MyRacePass to watch as Dirts4Racing owner Candice Kealy has big plans.
