Jack Looking for CRA Victories in 2019Scott Menlen
Salem, IN (March 19, 2019) – Auburn, Indiana racer Hunter Jack will be entering his third year of full-time competition with the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, with the goal of standing in victory lane with his first series win, and hopefully more than one during the 2019 season.
“My main goal this season is to win races,” remarked Jack. “We’ve had some good runs over the last two years, now it’s time to turn those good runs into victories. I’m looking to get my first ARCA/CRA Super Series and JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour wins in 2019!”
Jack got his first ever CRA win last season in a Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman event at Baer Field Motorsports Park. After competing in five ARCA/CRA Super Series events in 2016, Jack competed full-time with that series in 2017 and 2018, finishing fifth in the Chase for the Championship in 2017 and third in last years Chase for the Championship. Jack’s best finish with the ARCA/CRA Super Series has been a third-place finish at Baer Field Motorsports Park in 2017 and again in 2018.
Jack added, “I hope by racing for wins, that will put us in a good position to win the 2019 ARCA/CRA Super Series Chase for the Championship. We are going to venture out a little more this season, we are going to run both All American 400 events in Nashville and a couple of ARCA Midwest Tour events. I’m going to race in about five JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour races and some Late Model events at Baer Field. I’ll have plenty of seat time this season!”
Jack not only picked up his awards for finishing third in the 2018 Chase for the Championship with the ARCA/CRA Super Series at the 2018 CRA Awards Banquet, he was also voted the 2018 Sunoco Race Fuel Sportsman of the Year for that series by series officials and was voted the Speed 51.com Most Popular Driver.
“We’ve been working hard all winter on getting mine and my brother Tanner’s cars ready,” said Jack. “We have four VanDoorn Racing Development cars ready to go, two Super Late Models and two Crate Late Models, all powered by McGunegill Engine Performance motors. We picked up NAPA Fort Wayne Distribution Center as a sponsor for the 2019 season, I’m very proud to be representing NAPA in 2019!”
Tanner Jack will compete in selected JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour and Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman events in 2019. There will be some races were the brothers will be competing against each other in some CRA events in 2019.
Hunter Jack was recently selected as a semi finalist in the Kulwicki Driver Development Program. He hopes to be a finalist and be one of the seven drivers to compete in that program in 2019.
