Race Report: 2017 SCCA Majors Buttonwillow Raceway Park

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.

Race Report: 2016 SCCA Majors Tour Final Round

The 2016 SCCA Majors Final Round at Portland International Raceway

Chino, California (July 05, 2016) – Jackson Racing heads to the Final Round of the Majors Tour.

The Jackson Racing team headed up to the Pacific Northwest again for the last stop of the SCCA Majors Tour held at Portland International Raceway. Held over the 4th of July weekend, it always makes for a fun trip filled with friends, laughs, and racing.

Friday qualifying came and the weather was perfect! Oscar Jackson Jr. set out on the track and threw down a smoking lap time that landed the FR-S on pole by several seconds. The Jackson Racing Supercharger continues to work perfectly in all the different track conditions.

Saturday’s weather was just as nice, and would make for a great race. The green flag dropped and the cars were off! There was a multi car collision in turn 1, which resulted in one of the cars oiling down the track. The race was stopped for cleanup and rescheduled for Sunday morning.

Sunday was set to be a busy day, since there would be 2 STU races nearly back to back. Oscar Jackson Jr. set out from pole in Race 1 and quickly put some distance between the other competitors and drove to the win! The Jackson Racing FR-S came back to the pits for fuel and fresh BFGoodrich tires and went out to the grid for Race 2. Another start from pole and again Oscar Jr. was out in front. After a few laps there was a full course caution. This time the track was cleared quickly and the race commenced. Oscar Jr. and the Jackson Racing FR-S kept the push after the restart and pulled off another flag to flag win, the 11th win on the season.

Besides winning the races, Oscar Jr. was presented with his Championship trophies for both the Super Touring Light and Super Touring Under classes. It was a great season for Jackson Racing in the SCCA Majors Tour. Now the team prepares for the the SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Mid Ohio in September, with the hopes of bringing the National Championship home!

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!
