JR. ENTERS SOUTHERN NAT'LS TRIPLE SHOT
20, 2020) Jimmy Sharpe, Jr. and his #26jr team entered
a trio of Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Series battles in the
Peach State from July 17-19. On Friday night in a $10,053 to win
show at Needmore Speedway in Norman Park, Georgia, Jimmy unfortunately
failed to transfer into the 53-lap headliner after finishing sixth
in his loaded heat race and eighth in his B-Main. At Screven Motor
Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia on Saturday evening in the annual
'Rebel Yell,' which also boasted a $10,053 payday, Jimmy grabbed
the fifth transfer spot through his heat race. Unfortunately, the
Soperton, Georgia ace slowed on lap thirteen of the main event and
was officially placed twenty-third in the final finishing order.
The triple shot with the Southern Nationals gang then wrapped up
on Sunday at Cochran Motor Speedway in Cochran, Georgia. The series
first-ever stop to CMS paid out $3,500 to the winner. Jimmy clicked
off the fifth quickest lap in Group A during qualifying to land
a ninth starting spot in the 35-lap feature. Unfortunately, Jimmy
was caught up in an early wreck and was forced to retire in the
twentieth position. Complete results from each of these three races
