Beebe Racing - Date: June 23, 2005

Jason Fensler entered last Saturday’s race at Altamont winning four out of the five races held so far this year. He entered the evening with a thirty-three-point lead and looked to increase that lead at Altamont.

Jason remained in the top three all day in practice and was looking forward to qualifying. Some of the early cars timed in with fast laps, but Jason determined to gain more points in the qualifying bonus got quick time with a time of 18.002. With a six, eight, or ten invert possible Jason was hoping for the best. When it came time to draw the invert he drew a ten, which would mean he would have to start tenth putting Jeff Anthony on the pole for the race.

The race got off to a smooth start with Jason working his way up from the tenth starting spot to fourth by lap 20. A yellow flew for a spin in turn three and that would set up a restart with the top four being Jeff Anthony, Ken Boyd, Harold Reiker Jr., and Jason Fensler running fourth. On the restart Jason got a good jump on third and passed Harold Reiker going into turn one. Another yellow flew on lap 24 and the officials determined Jason had jump the previous restart sending him to the back of the field. With a long way back to the front Jason went to work picking the cars off one by one. On lap 63 he had worked his way up to fourth and spent the next ten laps in second chasing down the leader Jeff Anthony. With 19 laps to go Jason passed Jeff Anthony for the lead and lead the rest of the way for his fifth win of the year.

“It’s been an great year Eric, Ty and everyone at Beebe racing has done an awesome job”, explained Jason. “I made a mistake on the restart and was put to the back for it. The car was real lose for the race and I was real uncertain how far back up to the top we could make it.”

With the win Jason increased his point lead to 49 points, as this is now the half –waypoint of the season. The series returns to action Saturday July 2 at the Stockton 99 Speedway where Jason has won the first two events held at Stockton so far this year. Jason also leads the Apex Financial Qualifying points with 21 and Troy Ermish in second with 12.

Jason would like to thank the entire Beebe Racing crew for their hard work, and especially thank Allen Beebe for the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization. Jason and the entire Beebe Racing crew would also like to thank Paul Oil Company, Wilwood Disc Brakes, & Peters Racing Engines for there continued support in Beebe Racing Enterprises.
