Joel Myers Jr Kicks New Zealand Swing Off In Victory Lane

PETERSEN MEDIA: With racing wrapped up in the United States, Joel Myers Jr has already made his way to New Zealand to keep his season alive. Fresh off of a breakout campaign during last off season, Myers Jr returned right to form as he picked up the win on Saturday night at Ruapuna Speedway in convincing fashion.

“Big thanks to the Anderson Motorsports team for having me back again, and providing me with some strong equipment,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We had a couple of long days finishing the car when I arrived, but it paid off as we swept the show on Saturday night.”

Kicking his swing off at the familiar Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday night, Myers Jr got the night start of by lining The Ranch Bar and Grill/Vertex backed No. 46 up the second row of his heat race.

Getting a great jump, Myers Jr wasted to time getting into the race lead and leaving the field in his wake. Picking up the win, the Sebastopol, CA driver found himself in the ninth starting position of his second heat race.

Despite being mired in traffic, Myers Jr had his elbows up as he sliced and diced his way through the field and picked up another heat race win after starting in the fifth row.

Moving into the pursuit race to set the starting line up from the front of the field, the Californian advanced from fourth to first to pick the win, and earn the pole for the upcoming feature event.

Getting the jump in the feature event when the race went green, the only thing that slowed Myers Jr on this night was caution flags. Despite a couple of restarts sprinkled throughout the course of the 25-lapper, Myers Jr was well in command as he went on the score the win and cap off the ‘clean sweep’ of the night.

“It was great getting back to racing and seeing so many familiar faces that I met last year,” Myers Jr said. “Excited for this season in NZ, and cant wait to get back to racing this weekend.”
