In the annual running of the 'Scott Sexton Memorial' last night, Jimmy laid down the second fastest lap in Group A during Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series qualifying before securing a heat race triumph. After rolling off from the inside of the second row in the 52-lap headliner, Jimmy swept past leader Randy Weaver on the 25th circuit to nab the point and led the remainder of the caution-free affair to claim his second career 'Scott Sexton Memorial' title. The Newport, Tennessee native received a $10,052 paycheck for the victory over Weaver, Ashton Winger, Dale McDowell, and Mike Marlar!

Earlier in the Memorial Day holiday weekend, Team 20 competed in the annual 'Show-Me 100' at the pristine Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri. On Friday in the pair of $6,000 to win preliminary events, Jimmy blasted past fifteen competitors in the 'Cowboy Classic' to finish seventh in the 45-lap opener, while he advanced up to ninth in the final finishing order of the nightcap. At Wheatland on Saturday in the $30,000 to win 'Show-Me 100,' which was once again sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Jimmy quickly moved up from his seventh starting position to lead laps 13-40 of the crown jewel extravaganza. However, his car went away as the race wore on and the "Newport Nightmare" wound up paid for a steady eighth place performance.
