The 2017 SCCA Majors at Buttonwillow Raceway Park
Chino, California (May 1, 2017) – Jackson Racing headed to Buttonwillow Raceway Park for the SCCA Super Tour.
Buttonwillow, CA home to Buttonwillow Raceway Park, was the set of the 2nd West Coast Super Tour event. The Jackson Racing team came into the event with back to back victories at the previous two races. The T4 class is one of the bigger classes, which means lots of competition and well prepped cars.
Qualifying began on Saturday morning, and Oscar Jackson Jr. quickly set out to turn laps. The car was performing well and was able to qualify with a time that set pole, thanks to the BFGoodrich R1-S tires.
It was a hot day out, but thanks to the Jackson Racing Dual Radiator/Oil Cooler, the FR-S’ oil and water temps stayed cool during the quick pace Oscar Jr. was setting. Fast lap times and consistent driving led to a First Place Finish!
Oscar Jr. Started from pole gain on Sunday as the green flag waved. Focusing on clean laps, Oscar Jr. was able to stay at the front, and although he ran into some out of class traffic, was able to get around cleanly and take the checkered flag!
Jackson Racing will take the rest of the racing season off in preparation to defend the T4 National Championship at the Indy SCCA Runoffs.
