the #4R Open Wheel Modified once again on Saturday, December 31
to wrap up their 2016 racing season in the annual 'Hangover' event
at 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tennessee. Jimmy qualified second
quickest overall during the time trial session and later started
the $1,200 to win feature from the outside of the front row. The
Newport, Tennessee superstar then hung around the front of the field
and eventually grabbed the point from KC Burdette on the fifteenth
circuit. Jimmy then held the lead until the last few feet when he
was beat to the checkers by a mere 0.005 seconds to finish the 25-lapper
in the runner-up spot behind only victor Burdette. Full results

pulled double-duty on Saturday, November 26 at 411 Motor Speedway
in Seymour, Tennessee, as he entered both a Super Late Model and
an Open Wheel Modified in the 'Leftover' event. Steering Scott Russell's
#A19 Rocket machine once again, Jimmy clicked off the fastest lap
overall during Late Model qualifying and later started the $5,000
to win main event from the outside of the front row. After slipping
back to third early in the 50-lap distance, Jimmy stormed back to
battle Dale McDowell for the win late in the race before settling
for a strong runner-up showing.
In Open Wheel Modified competition, Jimmy drove a Ramirez Motorsports
#4R entry normally piloted by Dereck Ramirez on the USMTS circuit.
The Newport, Tennessee star promptly laid down the quickest time
overall during the qualifying session to earn Fast Time honors and
the pole position for the $1,200 to win feature event. During the
course of the 25-lap sprint, Jimmy dropped to the third spot in
the early stages of the race before mounting another late comeback
to grab a runner-up effort behind only victor KC Burdette. Full

Knoxville Nationals' thrilled fans over the extended weekend in
the Hawkeye State. The three-day crown jewel spectacular kicked

Nationals,' which once again boasted a whopping $40,000 payday.

point when he was forced to retire his smoking car, which relegated
