Jason “Holeshot” Harris pilots Warbird to victory at Virginia Motorsports Park
DINWIDDIE, VA – Jason Harris Racing made the trip to Virginia Motorsports Park in Dinwiddie, VA, to do battle against a stellar field of Pro Mod race teams. In total, 27 of the fastest stock-style race cars on the planet had been called to action by the Extreme Outlaw Pro Mod Association to qualify for their 16 car field, and the largest winnings posted in Extreme Outlaw Pro Mod Association history.
Under the command of General Robert Hayes, Robert Hayes Motorsports, Jason and his Warbird would qualify in the 5th position, running 3.94 sec. @ 189 mph. Robert is quick to point out that, to this point, the entire year has been devoted to finding the perfect combination for his newly designed chassis. “We have changed everything since the beginning of the year. No matter how much I feed it, this young War Eagle just wants more.”
Showing their resilience and after posting a career best 3.91 sec @ 191.5 mph, Jason and the JHR Team found themselves facing off in the final round against Danny Perry. In the final, both cars would leave the line pretty much even, but at the finish line, Jason found himself winning the race by just inches.
After the win, Jason emphasized that the feat would not have been possible without the dedication and devotion of our sponsors, team and fans. “Our Pat Musi/Billy Albert motor made more power than we could put to the ground and the rubber Hoosier gave us would hook up in any type of adverse weather.”
Jason said, “We are a family not just a team. And, this weekend the team was performing on an emotional level we had never experienced together before, after the loss of a crew member’s father this week.” Jason went on to dedicate the win and trophy to fellow crew member, Jacob Saad, after his father finished his long fought battle with bone cancer.
