Sweet and Schuchart Split AGCO Jackson Nationals Preliminary Nights and Kouba Posts Wingless Triumph to Start Marquee Event at Jackson Motorplex


27 Jun

JACKSON, Minn. - Brad Sweet and Logan Schuchart each captured a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series preliminary night on Friday at Jackson Motorplex, which hosted the 42nd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.

Jake Kouba was also a feature winner as he made a late-race move to secure victory in the Auto Meter Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Series main event.

Thursday's opener for the three-day event was postponed by rain following the heat races, which forced track and series officials to complete the remainder of the program early Friday evening before rolling into the second round of preliminary action.

Brad Sweet overcome an uncharacteristically slow qualifying time to make the dash via a run from seventh to second place in a heat race on Thursday. Sweet then gained a position in the dash on Friday to line up on the outside of the front row for the 25-lap main event. He led the distance to record his fifth victory of the series with the World of Outlaws and second at Jackson Motorplex.

"We dug ourselves a hole in qualifying," Sweet said. "We had to make up for it. Luckily we were able to get the win. We have a good package here. I've been comfortable at Jackson. We've won quite a few here lately. We have a good package and that's hats off to my guys. Typically we aren't fast up high there, but that's what the track called for in that day race."

Austin McCarl finished a career-best second and Matt Juhl posted a career-best third-place finish. Schuchart charged from 10th to fourth and Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the top five.

Scotty Thiel set quick time during qualifying before Shane Stewart, Juhl, Tim Shaffer and Kasey Kahne claimed heat race wins on Thursday. Terry McCarl won the C Main, Austin McCarl the dash and Thiel the Last Chance Showdown on Friday prior to the feature triumph by Sweet.

Schuchart then hustled to garner the second World of Outlaws feature of the day and the final preliminary night for the AGCO Jackson Nationals after taking the lead on Lap 10. Daryn Pittman, who led the first nine laps, finished in the runner-up position - nearly five seconds behind Schuchart.

"You never know when you're out in the lead," Schuchart said. "I was a little worried at the beginning because Daryn is always fast here. We were able to get by him there in lapped traffic. It just seemed like lapped cars, when I'd get up to them it seemed they were racing with each other and I'd be able to get by them at the right time."

Sweet placed third by a little more than two tenths of a second behind Pittman. Parker Price-Miller ended fourth and Donny Schatz rallied from 12th to fifth.

Jacob Allen was quickest in qualifying. Kahne, Sweet, Ian Madsen and Trey Starks picked up heat race wins. Wayne Johnson was the C Main winner. Jason Sides scored the triumph in the dash. Allen hustled to the Last Chance Showdown victory.

Another exciting feature on Friday was the Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Series main event, which Kouba won after starting seventh and getting around Jimmy Sivia in the closing laps amidst thick traffic.

Sivia held onto the top spot as the duo duked it out in traffic, but with only a couple of laps remaining he got into the back of another car while trying to put the driver a lap down. That opened the door for Kouba, who pounced and pulled away.

"I just couldn't figure out a way to get around him up on top," he said. "I tried the bottom and it wasn't working so well for me. I just had to wait for the right time I guess."

Sivia held on for second place with Chris Klemko finishing third, Chris Dodd fourth and Mike Mueller fifth.

Jordan Paulsen was quickest in qualifying. Kouba, Dodd and Sivia were the heat race winners.

Both preliminary nights for the World of Outlaws featured more than 40 drivers and tallied points throughout each program to determine the lineups for Saturday's $30,000-to-win finale. The Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Series will also be part of the program. The pits open at 2 PM with the grandstands opening at 4 p.m. and hot laps at 7 PM.
