Groton, Conn. — A strong season at New London-Waterford Speedbowl brought Jason Palmer back to the head table. Palmer earned his first Late Model championship with 5 wins, 16 top fives and 17 top 10s. Palmer’s sponsors are Manafort Brothers, Nano Construction, CWPM, FMR Racing, Waddell Communications, Sign Pro, Pecon, and Ukleja’s Christmas Trees.
“It feels pretty good,” said Palmer Saturday night. “It took us a few more years than we wanted to to get here, but we got here and I think we’re just here to enjoy the night and make the most of it and get ready for 2016.”
Palmer had to adjust to Late Models after a successful career in Legend Cars.
“We got the car figured out. The Legend Cars are much, much harder to drive and they’re basically out of control. The Late Model’s like driving a boat. I’ve never really been a captain, so it’s tough for me to get a hang on it. But six years later, we figured it out.”
