Inside Line Promotions - JEFFERSON, S.D. (May 19, 2020) - Jack Dover posted his first feature victory of the season on Sunday evening during a Sprint Series of Nebraska event at The New Raceway Park.
"It feels really good," he said. "It's a huge confidence boost. Any type of racing where you win it builds your confidence."
Dover piloted Chris Roseland's No. 84 to the triumph during only their second race of the season. It marked the second straight year that Dover has earned his first trip to Victory Lane during the second race of the season.
The night began with Dover maneuvering from seventh to fourth place in a heat race. That earned a spot into the feature redraw.
"We were fortunate enough because in the heat the track was one lane around the bottom," he said. "We were lucky to sneak around enough cars to get in the redraw."
The redraw lined Dover up on the outside of the fourth row for the A Main.
"We slowly picked cars off one by one," he said. "We could maneuver around anywhere we wanted. The track was real heavy and started moving up where you could almost be two wide, but it was really good around the bottom. We hit the setup perfect. We got by everybody about six laps in, got in clean air and checked out."
The victory came on the heels of a strong season opener May 8 at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., where Dover and Roseland picked up two positions in a heat race to place fifth. The night ended with a charge from 13 th to fourth in the main event.
"It was huge," he said. "It was a brand new car so you don't know how the car will react. We got better as the race went on. I think it's because we lost the fuel load and the car freed up a little bit. We came from 11 th to fourth with five laps to go and ran down second to third."
Dover will debut his No. 53 sprint car this Saturday at Park Jefferson International Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D., during the 4th annual Memorial Duels with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprint Series and the Midwest Sprint Touring Series before he returns to the track on Monday during the 3rd annual Pepsi South Dakota Sprint Car Nationals with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series.
"I'm looking forward to getting my car and doing the same," he said. "This car with Chris is a twin to what I run and it's brand new. It worked really good."
