Brian Brown had a very good weekend getting locked in to the top four and finishing third in the final race. Brian has been fast all year, and this time he wasn't snake bitten like he has been a few times so far. Tim Kaeding was a pleasant surprize and did great! It's my understanding that the Lundstra #3 was put together and finished just the week of the Jackson Nationals. Kaeding and team did a whale of a job, being fifth high points man for the event and fininshing 6th in the final race. In my opinion the Lundstra team needs to keep that team running and get geared up for the Knoxville Nationals. Lynton Jeffrey set a new track record on Friday night and he broke his own record qualifying on Saturday afternoon. Finishing just outside the top ten in 11th on Saturday night, was a great run for Jeffrey. They need to crate that motor up and put it back in for qualifying at Knoxville in August. All in all the Jackson-Knoxville drivers did pretty well against the WoO drivers. Mark Dobmeier will continue to get faster in the new BWW car, as will Justin Henderson in his new ride. Kerry Madsen struggled some during the Jackson event, as did Terry McCarl and Brooke Tatnell who has also been fast this year, but they will be ready for Knoxville I'm sure. The youngsters like Juhl and the McCarl kids are doing just fine. They'll get better and better as the laps add up. There is still a strong nucleus of drivers connecting Jackson and Knoxville and travellers know they need to tighten the harnesses when they come to either track. As for the Outlaws, what can one say? They are the best for sure.

Saw most of it on Dirtvision. Brad Sweet going from the back all the way up to 7th was remarkable in a short amount of time.

I thought it was an awesome weekend of racing. We camped in the turn 1 campground Thursday to Sunday. The campground was fantastic with water and electric hookups, fill and dump station, and tons of room so we werent packed in like sardines. It was my first time there since the updates and Tod and crew did a heck of a job. Track was good all weekend considering Gregg had everything thrown at him with the weather. The Saturday afternoon race was easily the best day race Ive ever seen, and better than alot of night races. The final night was also awesome. This is going to turn into one of the premier races to win in all of dirt motorsports. We will definitely be back next year for it.

Kudos to Tod, Doug and all the gang there, what a track job for all 3 days, amazing.  The Saturday afternoon race previously mentioned was simply excellent, what a surprise and the man is right, better than a lot of A-Mains run during the normal night racing.  I haven't been there since the changes but it seems like typical Tod, everything is First Class, well done everyone!!!!

Hat's off to the whole crew at Jackson. Big congrat's to Kaleb Johnson in the 305's. This young man started racing Go-karts on the little bullring just South of the Big Track at Jackson. We raced against Kaleb for quite a few years in karts and it was really cool to see him get the BIG WIN Saturday night. I hope this event keeps growing in the future.

I watched it all from dirtvision.  Track crew did a great job, that Saturday day show was awesome, even down to the heats.  Watching Johnson jump the cushion and pass cars was super cool.  Next year I'm going to try to get out there for the full show.  The place looks great!

I got the 30 day PPV on Friday, great deal and it includes best dirt track and two nights of Knoxville.

The track took most of the night to widen out after all the rain.  Heats scrambled for half a lap then locked in to their finishing order for the most part.  Decent night considering the circumstances.

Friday night was good.  Saturday afternoon was the best day time race I have seen in the modern era.  Started watching day races at our Fair in 1960 and saw some greats so that's saying a lot.

Saturday finale was a fitting cap on the weekend.  Great racing, it looked like a mini Knoxville.  

I need to get down there.

Looked like good crowds on Friday and Saturday night. I hope the event continues to grow and I’m going to make it priority to get there in 2019 if it’s the same type of event as it was this year.

I attended all three days.  Granted after Friday's show, I was a little worried that the changes still did not make the track much more racey than when it was a 1/2 mile. (I do realize there was a lot of rain on Thursday night) My worries were put to rest on Saturday....the day race was top notch and then the night race raised it another bar.  If the night race is the norm for Jackson going forward, we are all going to be spoiled here in the upper Midwest.  The facility is unbelievable with the changes.  I heard someone mentioning the possibilities of adding seats in the backstretch sometime in the near future.  I am sure Tod & company will continure to add more things here & there.  Right now it is a racing palace, can't wait to see more from Jackson.  (As a side note, when they added water to the track on Saturday afternoon, the groans from the crowd were hilarious.)

They had an unbelievable 360 race highlites posted a few weeks ago so the heavy track was a circustance caused by heavy rain on Friday.  Search for it on YouTube, four wide crazy action.  Awesome job reinventing that place.  For years the joke was that remodeling was a new sheet metal trough in the infield men's room.  No joke anymore, everything is new.

What a great weekend! Wished they would have announced the dates for next year so it could already be blocked off on my calendar. Probably beating a dead horse here, but, yes the facility is ABSOLUTELY first class. I'm sold on the new config, the speeds are still there and the racing action is much better. Cannot forget to mention the food at the track, the pork tenderloin sandwich is to die for. I like the community as well, fun bike trails and a nice golf course. Windier than heck on Friday but still got 9 holes in.

Would have been fun to see Sweet stay up towards the front instead of going to the back after the yellow. Coming all of the way back up to 7th, he might have had something for Schatz. Congrats to the #22 in the 305 class. Awesome display of working the track to start 15th and then take the checkers. Fun race to watch.

Thank you everyone at Jackson Motorplex, awesome job all around! Cannot wait for the multi-day ASCS show in August.

Thanks for asking. I went on Saturday only and was very impressed with the facility and the program in general. I could complain about the long concession and bathroom lines, but that wouldn't take away from my overall experience. Great racing surface, great crowd, program moved right along. I will return.

And now....plenty of good weekly racing ahead and then on July 27th the All Stars and Tony Stewart come to the Jackson Motorplex! That's another event no one should miss. Can't wait!

I was not there but was tuned into Dirtvision all weekend..

Does anyone know what  the discussion or issue that Brown and Schatz had. Brown did not seem very happy with

him in Victory Lane?

I saw that also J & J, he seemed pissed when he first approached Donnie after he got of his car.  He said nothing in the Victory Lane interview though, impressive to keep it between themselves on Brown's part.  Maybe somebody will pass it along...

Maybe Brown was pissed cause Schatz won again?  Sarcasm.  I didnt see it so dont know what took place, but Schatz is a very clean driver.

Also, Brown has great respect for Schatz.  Whatever it was, I'm sure it will be short lived.  Hopefully, Schatz will be walking up to him pissed off in August..
