Event Recap from Rd 3 Orlando, FL:

It was a wild hot one! Weather played a huge part in the FD PRO event with heavy rain, high winds, torrential rain, thunder, lightning and even a tornado warning.

Jeff Jones Qualified in P16 out of 36 drivers
Top 32 Battle with Branden Sorensen: Jones WON & Advanced into the Top 16
Top 16 Battle with Fredric Aasbo: Hard Fought Battle – Aasbo slightly edged out Jones

The Jeff Jones Racing team finished Round 3 in 11th Place.
We have now secured 9th Place Overall in Championship points heading into Rd 4.

Quote from Jeff Jones:
“It felt great coming into Orlando with lots of confidence from ATL. It was a rough start with this new Z build and getting myself acclimated may have took longer than we wanted, but I’m all in now. Orlando Speedway is one of those tracks with one miss timed transition, it can take you out of the show. I had a great Top 16 battle with Aasbo, we fought really hard with wet setups keeping us on our toes. I felt it could have possibly gone OMT but all in all I love how the car and team are performing. We can’t wait to bring the fight to Englishtown”
