“The car just didn’t work the way we wanted it to,” said Meyers. “Our crew worked hard, but it didn’t go in the direction we wanted it to.”

On Friday, Meyers turned things around at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas. Setting the quick time, just a tick off a new track record, he earned five bonus points for the fastest timed lap. He raced his way to third place in the heat race and sixth in the Crane Cams Dash.

In the A-Main, Meyers ran fourth giving him 146 points for the evening and putting him at fourth in the overall point standings. “We were off a bit on Wednesday, but we had a great run at Heartland,” he said.

On Sunday, Meyers qualified fourth out of the thirty-one machines at Charter Raceway Park in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Meyers won his heat and the Crane Cams Dash which put him in the pole position for the A-Main. His Crane Cams Dash was his eighth of the season, placing him second to series points leader Donny Schatz.

Meyers held onto the first position for less than a lap as Daryn Pittman went around him. Meyers would not give up and waged a furious battle with Donny Schatz for second position, eventually losing it to Schatz on lap thirty. Schatz and Meyers uses K&N Engineering products.

“I struggled in traffic even though the track was in good shape,” said Meyers. “We had room to race and it made for a good night. We are 100 percent confident in the performance of our K&N Products. It makes it much easier to put our car on the podium at the end of the night.”

Jason Meyers and the Elite Racing Team will head to the famed Eldora Speedway as part of the American Revolution Weekend present by Chevrolet on Friday, September 21.
