With rain outs plaguing race tracks across the
state for the past 2 weeks, Emily finally had a
chance to shine at the Jackson County Speedway
season opener. With 6 cars starting in her heat
race, she ran away with the win. Emily drew the #2
starting spot which put her on the outside pole
position. She dropped back to 5th but fought her
way back up to 2nd for 3 laps. The feature would
only have two cautions and Emily finished in 4th
place by a nose.
