At Spoon River Speedway in Banner, Illinois Goldesberry ran in the front of the packed field of cars. After winning both dashes he launched the K&N Filters from the pole position of the 25 lap A-main.

Goldesberry fell back two spots shortly after the green flag waved but patiently waited. By lap 12, he moved into second place. One circuit later, the race leader made contact with another car and he stopped on the front stretch. Goldesberry propelled to the front of the pack and took home his first career sprint car feature win.

“We use K&N products,” said Jack Goldesberry, Jordan’s father. “K&N keeps the dirt out of our engines.”

The remainder of the racing season for Goldesberry Motorsports includes nine nights of racing in the next three weekends.
