Race Report: 2016 SCCA Majors Tour Round 5

The 2016 SCCA Majors Round 5 at Pacific Raceways

Chino, California (June 01, 2016) – Jackson Racing races towards more wins at Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA.

Jackson Racing headed north for Round 5 of the SCCA Majors Tour at Pacific Raceways. The weather in Washington can be unexpected. Rain? Sunny? Drizzle? Yes, those all can happen… Multiple times in one day. With the races being held on Memorial Day weekend, the weekend format was a little bit different. There was a qualifying on Saturday afternoon, another qualifying Sunday morning, Race #1 Sunday afternoon and Race #2 Monday morning.

The track was damp for Saturday morning’s qualifying. Oscar Jr. set out to put some laps in and landed the Jackson Racing FR-S on pole yet again.

Sunday had been raining on and off all morning, but the track was dry enough to keep the BFGoodrich R1-S dry race tires on. As the green flag dropped, Oscar Jr. started to turn his laps and put a good distance between the rest of the field. Lap after lap, the car maintained its poise and in the end Oscar Jr. came away with the win and a new Course Record!

For Monday’s race, the Jackson Racing FR-S would begin on pole once again. The weather for Monday was beautiful! The sun was out in full effect and the track was completely dry! The Jackson Racing Team knew that this would lead to some extremely fast lap times. Oscar Jr. once again dominated the field and broke the Course Record he set the day before!
