Tim Jordan Returns to His Winning Ways at Waterford

Waterford, CT — Early in the 2007 season, Tim Jordan won four Late Model races at Waterford Speedbowl (CT). Since then, his #47 team has struggled with handling issues on their car after a mid-season. They’ve searched high and low for answers – realigning the front end geometry of their Late Model and going through it multiple times to find why it isn’t handling like it used to.

Brad Leighton Rallies To Seventh Place Finish At NHIS

Loudon, NH — Brad Leighton made a late-race rally to finish the Aubuchon Hardware 125 at New Hampshire International Speedway in the seventh position. Leighton’s No. 55 Irving Oil Chevrolet was overheating in the final laps of the event, but it didn’t stop the master of the ‘Magic Mile’ from posting a top-10 finish.

“We were tight all day long,” said Leighton. “We pitted for tires and made an adjustment and we gave it all we had. We were running 280 degrees the last 12 laps so that isn’t good. I didn’t want to push it too hard because I didn’t want to destroy the motor for seventh place. We had a top-10 car today, but we really had to work for it.”
