SEPTEMBER 16, 2018
Jeep Van Wormer made a last minute decision to invade Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan pay off in a big way on Saturday, September 15, as the Pinconning, Michigan ace recorded his first victory of the 2018 campaign! Jeep knocked down the sixth quickest time in his group during American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT) qualifying, but later suffered nose damage in his heat race when he made contact with an inside utility tire. After rebounding in his B-Main to score the victory, Jeep rolled off from the outside of the eighth row in the 40-lap headliner.

On the dirt-covered asphalt speedplant in the 'YellowHose.com 40,' he trilled his home state fans by steering his #55 Rocket by BruceBilt Performance machine towards the front of the field. After a couple of competitors fell by the wayside, Jeep was there to pounce on the opportunity to lead the final ten circuits. He beat Travis Stemler, Brandon Thirlby, Logan Arntz, and Rich Neiser to the checkers to bag the $4,000 winner's check! Complete results from Berlin can be viewed online at www.aelmt.com.

SEPTEMBER 9, 2018
Iron Motorsports had planned to unload their #55 machine from September 6-8 at the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio to vie for the prestigious globe trophy in the 48th Annual 'World 100.' However, with the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon postponing Friday and Saturday's action at the "Big E" until October 12-13, only Thursday night's $10,000 to win Twin 25s escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. In the wee hours of Friday morning after a lengthy rain delay, Jeep Van Wormer placed eighth in his loaded heat race and seventh in his B-Main. Unfortunately, Jeep was unable to make the start in his 25-lap main event. Complete results from the soggy weekend in the Buckeye State can be found online at www.eldoraspeedway.com.

AUGUST 26, 2018
The Iron Motorsports team made their way to the pristine Mansfield Motor Speedway in Mansfield, Ohio on August 24-25 to compete in the inaugural running of the highly-publicized 'Dirt Million.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned the two-day spectacular, which kicked off on Friday night with a pair of $10,000 to win 'Dirt Million' duels. Jeep Van Wormer grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his loaded heat race and later rolled off from the outside of the seventh row in his 30-lap duel. Jeep then appeared to have a top ten run going in the main event until a lap 23 flat tire dropped him to twentieth in the final finishing order.

A huge standing-room-only crowd was then on hand to witness the largest paying Super Late Model show of 2018 on Saturday, as a whopping nearly $203,000 winner's check was up for grabs. Jeep advanced to third in his heat race and then battled hard for a coveted transfer position into the 100-lap headliner through his consolation race. Unfortunately, the Pinconning, Michigan ace wound up fourth in his B-Main and was unable to advance into the 'Dirt Million,' which was eventually won by Earl Pearson, Jr. Full results from the lucrative 'Dirt Million' weekend can be obtained by visiting www.lucasdirt.com.

 

 

JUNE 10, 2018
The Iron Motorsports team rolled into Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 7-9 for 'Dream XXIV,' which drew 78 competitors to the 1/2-mile speedplant. After Thursday night's $5,000 to win prelim was washed out to Friday afternoon, Jeep Van Wormer started his weekend by finishing sixth in his heat race, winning his B-Main, and placing nineteenth in the 25-lap daytime sprint. Later that evening, Jeep grabbed the fifth and final transfer spot through his heat race before finishing twenty-first in the $10,000 to win headliner.

When Saturday came around at the "Big E," all eyes in the pit area were focused on the whopping $100,000 paycheck in the annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' Jeep was running fifth in his loaded heat race and gaining on the fourth place car when he got too high in turn one. His #55 machine jumped the cushion, hit the wall, and was then struck by two cars running behind him. The Pinconning, Michigan ace emerged from the grinding incident unscathed, but Jeep was done for the evening and did not advance into the 100-lap crown jewel main event.

APRIL 29, 2018
Jeep Van Wormer and his Iron Motorsports team traveled to the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on Saturday evening, April 28 for an American Late Model Series (ALMS) throwdown. Jeep posted the fastest lap in his group during the qualifying session before placing second in heat race action. The Pinconning, Michigan hotshoe then rolled off from the outside of the third row in the $5,000 to win headliner and immediately felt like he had a car capable of competing for the win in the 25-lap sprint. Unfortunately while battling inside of the top five early in the distance, Jeep got into the backstretch wall and was done for the night - relegating him to a disappointing twenty-third place performance.

APRIL 15, 2018
Following several different weather cancellations over the past month, Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 team finally kicked off their version of the 2018 racing season over the April 13-14 weekend in the states of Ohio and Virginia. On Friday night at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned the annual 'Buckeye Spring 50,' which boasted a $12,000 winner's check. Jeep timed in eleventh fastest in Group B during the qualifying session before placing fifth in his stacked heat race. He was then contending for a coveted transfer spot through his B-Main when he unfortunately went for a spin in turn one, which relegated him to a ninth place finish and kept him out of the 50-lap main event.

A long overnight haul then awaited the Iron Motorsports team, as they traveled to the pristine Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia on Saturday for the 'King of the Commonwealth,' which was sanctioned by the Ultimate Super Late Model Series. A stellar field of 56 entrants signed into the pit area at VMS to vie for the whopping $20,000 top prize. Jeep once again knocked down the eleventh quickest lap in Group B during time trials prior to slipping back to seventh in his loaded heat race. The Pinconning, Michigan ace was then unable to transfer into the 60-lapper through his consolation race, as he pulled off the racing surface in the waning laps of his B-Main.
