Next up for the #20 team was a visit to Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi on June 16-17 for the annual running of the 'Clash at the Mag.'

The Newport, Tennessee ace then started seventh on the grid in the $12,000 to win main event and was gaining on the leaders early in the 60-lapper before steering problems eventually caused him to retire from the 'Clash at the Mag' in the twenty-second position. Jimmy now finds himself seventh in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings. Full results can be viewed online at www.lucasdirt.com.

JIMMY OWENS TACKLES DIRT LATE MODEL DREAM...
(June 11, 2017)
Ramirez Motorsports traveled to the Buckeye State of Ohio from June 8-10 for the 23rd edition of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' A stellar field of 79 Super Late Model competitors signed in at the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio and all eyes were focused on the whopping $100,000 winner's share. Things kicked off at the "Big E" on Thursday and Friday with a pair of preliminary programs, which paid $5,000 and $10,000 to win respectively in Twin 25 lap sprints.

Jimmy Owens unfortunately failed to record an official time during qualifying for both prelims, but rallied to finish third in his heat race and fifteenth in Thursday's main event and ran seventh in his heat race, third in his B-Main, and sixteenth in Friday's 25-lapper. Jimmy was then spun in his heat race on Saturday evening and was only able to advance up to eleventh in his consolation event. Unfortunately, the Newport, Tennessee superstar was unable to transfer into the 100-lap 'Dirt Late Model Dream,' which was eventually won by Scott Bloomquist.

OWENS ADDS ELDORA CROWN JEWEL RACES TO '17 SCHEDULE
(April 24, 2017)
After careful consideration and much deliberation, Jimmy Owens and Ramirez Motorsports - along with the other race teams implicated in last June's tire controversy at Eldora (OH) Speedway - have jointly decided not to pursue any additional legal action against World Racing Group. While Jimmy maintains his complete innocence in the tire matter from the 2016 'Dirt Late Model Dream' and does not admit to guilt of any kind, the decision to not bring the strong case to court was made for one single reason… the fans.

"The fans are really the ones suffering from the fallout after last year's Dream race and I've heard from so many of them wishing that we could run at this event or that event," commented Owens today via telephone. "It was a very tough decision for us to make because we do have such a strong case and I'd like nothing more than to prove my innocence and clear my name from that whole deal. But at the end of the day, the longer a potential lawsuit would draw out - the more the fans are hurt and really the entire sport would suffer. I have a bunch of great and loyal fans and I'm looking forward to be able to race in front of them in certain races we were forced to skip last year!"

Team 20 has now added both the 'Dirt Late Model Dream' and the 'World 100' at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio to their schedule of events for 2017 and will most likely add additional UMP DIRTcar Series and World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series specials to their racing calendar in the near future.
