Joel Myers Jr Set To Defend War of Wings Title Fresh Off Second Win of NZ Season  



PETERSEN MEDIA: Venturing to Nelson Speedway over the weekend, Joel Myers Jr picked right up from where he left off during his opening weekend.


Running fourth and second in Friday night feature events, Myers Jr picked up his second win of his trip on Saturday night, as he now turns his attention to his title defense of the War of Wings Series which kicks of this weekend.


“We had good speed at Nelson, and that showed with us charging from ninth to second, and then winning on Saturday night,” Meyers Jr said. “In the first feature on Friday, we endured a bit of contact and that’s essentially what dropped us back to a fourth-place finish.”


After enduring a bit of contact in the opening feature on Friday, Myers Jr and team went to work preparing for the second feature as they were slated to line up ninth based on the inversion.


With the track curfew interrupting the action, they returned on Saturday night to finish Friday’s feature on a very slick surface. Getting a handle on the track, the Sebastopol, CA pilot was able to work his way up to second when the checkered was displayed and gave him a ton of confidence heading into the Saturday night program.


Moving into Saturday’s Sunshine Classic, Myers Jr proved to be the one to beat all night long. On the extremely slick surface, Myers Jr and company continued to keep tabs on it as they made some gutsy changes before the feature event.


Working out to their benefit, Myers Jr was able to best the field assembled at Nelson Speedway and score his second feature event win of the young season.


“I really want to thank Dan and Kevin for all of their hard work, as well as our partners Suck it UP LTD, The Ranch Bar and Grill, and Vertex Lubricants,” Myers Jr added.
