Jason Romero had another strong showing in the No. 2 MBC Group Late Model this weekend, setting the pole at Tri-County Motor Speedway (Hudson, N.C.) and finishing fifth at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
Romero set fast-time at Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday night for the second consecutive week and was set to start the race fourth after the invert. Unfortunately for Romero and teammates Jessica Brunelli and Katie Hagar, who qualified fourth and fifth, inclement weather moved in cancelling the evening’s 50 lap late model race.
Weather didn’t slow Romero at Hickory, however. With storms threatening, track officials moved up the start time for the 50 lap late model feature Saturday night. Romero, who qualified ninth, drove his way to a fifth-place finish in the event, crossing the line side-by-side with fourth-place finisher Ty Dillon.
“We had a great run tonight,” said Romero. “The MBC Group late model was hooked up tonight and we were going to the front. Unfortunately we ran out of laps there at the end, but we’ve had two solid runs in a row here now. We’re getting better and I’m looking forward to coming back in a few weeks.”
Romero’s Revolution Racing teammates Hagar and Brunelli finished 10th and 12th, respectively.
The Revolution Racing Late Model program will take a weekend off before returning to Hickory Motor Speedway on May 29 with drivers Michael Cherry, Becca Kasten and Megan Reitenour.
