Jeff Taylor Finds Victory Lane in Arizona
Increases 2019 Win Talley to Nine
Cave City, Ark. (11/26/19) – Jeff Taylor held off R.C. Whitwell on the final circuit to win Sunday’s Desert Thunder Nationals finale at Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, Ariz. The victory came aboard Taylor’s Industrial Electric No. 5 Spur Bar/ Wehrs Machine/ Provence Construction/ Shaw Race Car Modified.
“We got a little more balance in the car today,” Taylor said afterward. “We held on; the car was pretty good so we’re happy with that.”
“It’s different racing here in the day. You can see the shadow off of two,” Taylor explained. “I knew if he ever got beside me and I saw his shadow that I would be in trouble. But I couldn’t run down there so there wasn’t anything I could do about it so if he passed me, then more power to him.”
Returning on his western swing, Jeff Taylor along with 40 other IMCA Modified drivers converged at Central Arizona Speedway for the 6th Annual Desert Thunder Nationals. Taylor started the night off with a heat race victory which positioned him second on the starting grid for the finale.
Jeff jumped into the lead at the outset of the feature and led throughout. A final caution with five laps remaining put a hard-charging Whitwell on Taylor’s rear bumper, but Taylor was up to the task and fought off Whitwell’s last gasp bid for the lead.
Taylor’s ninth victory of the season came ahead of Whitwell, Alex Stanford, Chaz Baca, and Jason Noll.
Earlier in the weekend, Taylor fell just one spot short of a transfer position into Friday night’s main event. Jeff improved on his performance on Saturday, recording an eighth-place finish in the 25-lap A-Main after starting 14th.
