Jason Meyers Nets Third Outlaw Win of the Season at Dodge City; Kicks off Another Busy Stretch

CLOVIS, Calif. (June 24, 2007) – On May 11, 2007, Jason Meyers and the Elite Racing team visited the World of Outlaws (WoO) Victory Lane at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri.Forty-one days later, the Elite Landscaping, Primerica Financial, GLR Investments Maxim Racing with Garrett Racing Engines machine found themselves back in Victory Lane at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas.

Before heading west to Dodge City, the Elite Racing team made a stop in Sedalia, Mo. for the event at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, in an event that benefited the Michael Ross Memorial Foundation on Wednesday night.

Qualifying sixth at the semi-banked half-mile oval, Meyers was only just over a tenth of a second off of the fast qualifier, Jason Solwold.Finishing fourth in his heat race, Meyers finished tenth in the Crane Cams Dash, which set the lineup of the first half of the WoO field for the A-Main event.

Fighting a tight machine on the restarts during the course of the event, Meyers was able to get his machine up to the sixth position, but was unable to sustain, coming across the line in ninth position.

"Between competing in the Michael Ross Memorial Foundation charity golf event earlier in the day and then racing for the foundation tonight, it's been a great day in terms of helping out this foundation," commented Meyers.

Heading down the road to the Boot Hill Showdown at the Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas, Meyers and the Elite Racing team had visited the semi-banked 3/8 mile oval five times prior to the June 22, 2007 event.

Qualifying ninth during the AMB i.t. time trial event, Meyers crossed the finish line first in his heat and ran second in the Crane Cams Dash, which would line him up on the outside of the first row for the A-Main event, next to the 2006 WoO Champion and current point leader, Donny Schatz.

Winning the battle for position entering the first turn of the first lap, Meyers was able to hold on to the lead until the thirteenth circuit, when Schatz would motor around him.Not losing ground to Schatz, Meyers held on and when Schatz bobbled on the high side of the track on lap sixteen, which allowed Meyers to utilize slower traffic to get around Schatz.Meyers would hold on for the close victory, which would be his third on the season.

"The race was tough tonight—we battled Donny all night long and this brand new Maxim is the best race car we've ever had," noted Meyers."We have new MBE heads on this Charlie Garrett motor, which are phenomenal, but the real thanks go to (crew chief) DJ (Lindsey) and Brian (Bloomfield) for putting that horsepower on the track.I always love coming to Dodge City, and it's nice to have good news to email home tonight!"

Returning to Dodge City for night two of the Boot Hill Showdown, Meyers was confident that their car would be fast out of the box, considering the night they had in Victory Lane.With the cameras from ESPN2 rolling for the WoO "SuperClean Summer of Money" on the famed network, Meyers knew that they would need to have a solid run to put the black no. 14 in front of the cameras as much as possible.

However, victory simply wasn't in the cards for Meyers during the second night of the event.Qualifying twenty-sixth, and running seventh in his both his heat race and the B-Main event, Meyers would have to take a provisional and start at the rear of the field.

With a finish of twenty-second, Meyers was disappointed in the finish that he had on the evening.

"We struggled, plain and simple," commented Meyers."I'm looking forward to moving on, heading north and catching Daryn (Pittman) in points."

Coming up next for the Elite Racing team will be the event at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, South Dakota, followed by The Duel in the Dakotas on Friday, June 29th at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota and Saturday, June 30th at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, North Dakota. The WoO will finish their stretch with a trip to Cedar Lake Speedway in Wisconsin on Sunday, July 1st
