McKENZIE, TN – Derek Hagar and Chase Brewer led the way for J&J Auto Racing in Sprint car action last weekend each winning two, while Donny Schatz, Nate Dussel, Ryan Ruhl, Brad Haudenschild, Brandon McMullen and Brenden Wilde were also victorious using J&J Auto Racing Sprint cars.
Derek Hagar scored back-to-back wins last week in the USCS events at Crowley’s Ridge Raceway and Batesville Motor Speedway. Hagar wheeled his No. 9jr J&J to his 32nd career USCS victory at Crowley’s Ridge after taking the lead for good on lap 14. At Batesville, Hagar chased fellow J&J racer Morgan Turpen (No. 10M J&J) until she had mechanical problems. Hagar assumed the lead and went on to win his fifth race of 2015.
"I think we have some good momentum built," admitted Hagar. "We’ve had good cars and had a good weekend."
Chase Brewer raced the No. 1 J&J to victory both Friday at Mountain Creek Speedway in Grand Prairie, Texas. He stared 10th and raced his way into the lead without any cautions. On Saturday, Brewer drove his J&J to victory at Kennedale Speedway Park. The victories were his second and third of the season.
Brandon McMullen earned his first win of the season Friday night at Dodge County Fairgounds in Beaver Dam, Wisonsin. He drove his No. 98 J&J to victory in the Midwest Sprint Car Association feature.
Donny Schatz continued his incredible 2015 World of Outlaws season by winning his 20th A-Feature of the year aboard Tony Stewart Racing’s No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance J&J. The victory came at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin.
Nate Dussell won his first career 410 Sprint car feature last Saturday night at Fremont Speedway. Dussell drove Al Davis’ No. 40DD J&J and led all 30 laps to capture the win. Cap Henry finished second in the No. 53 J&J to give J&J a one-two sweep.
Brad Haudenschild celebrated Wayne Co. Speedway’s 50th anniversary bash with his third victory of the year in the Kempthorn Auto Mall/Fire & Ice Pub backed No. 38K J&J. Haudenschild worked his way into second on lap two and took the lead nine laps later. Once in front, he would only be slowed down by one caution on his way to the win.
Brenden Wilde had to be determined to finally win a NOSA Feature event. He became the 73rd different winner after racing his No. 35 J&J past fellow J&J racer Wade Nygaard on the final lap of a thrilling 25-lap feature event at Devil’s Lake Speedway in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. It took three tries to finish the race and Wilde edged out Nygaard to score his first win of the year.
"It feels great, unbelievable!" said Wilde after the race. "I kept seeing guys spinning out and all I kept thinking was, ‘Come on guys. Two more laps. All I need is two more laps."
Ryan Ruhl put on a show Saturday night at Butler Speedway in Butler, Michigan. Ruhl started his No. 16 J&J 19th and drove all the way to victory to earn his sixth triumph of 2015.
