AUGUST 7, 2022
The Iron Motorsports team found themselves at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan on August 5-6 for the 34th edition of the 'Wood Tic Dan Salay Memorial.' On Friday night during preliminary action, Jeep Van Wormer timed in second fastest in his group during qualifying and later ran second in his heat race. After firing off from the outside of the second row in the 25-lap odd main event, Jeep drove to the front to secure the $1,500 first place prize money over runner-up Cody Bauer, Rich Bell, David Mielke, and Ryan Missler!

By virtue of his win in the odd feature on Friday, Jeep rolled off from the pole position in Saturday's 75-lap headliner. With his sights set on the whopping $34,000 winner's check, the Pinconning, Michigan standout ran amongst the top five early in the distance before slipping over the turn one banking battling for the third spot on lap 44. While he was able to get his #55 machine back on the racing surface, the off-road excursion helped drop him to eleventh in the final rundown of the 'Wood Tic Dan Salay Memorial.'

JULY 24, 2022
A pair of $10,000 DIRTcar Summer Nationals tilts were next up on the racing calendar for the #55 team on July 22-23 in their home state of Michigan. On Friday night at the nearby Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan, Jeep Van Wormer posted the third quickest lap in his group during qualifying before securing an impressive victory in his heat race. After starting the 40-lap feature from the inside of the second row, Jeep ran strong early in the contest until sliding off the racetrack and eventually retiring in the twenty-first finishing position.

The "Hell Tour" finale then took place on Saturday evening at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan and another $10,000 top prize was up for grabs. Jeep laid down the fifth quickest time in his group during the qualifying session prior to finishing fifth in his loaded heat race and winning the B-Main. The Pinconning, Michigan ace then started the 40-lapper from the seventeenth starting spot and picked off a handful of competitors en route to a twelfth place effort.

JULY 17, 2022
Following a rain-out on Friday night at the nearby Tri-City (MI) Motor Speedway, the Iron Motorsports team made their way back to Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio on Saturday evening, July 16 for the track's annual 'Birthday Race.' The DIRTcar Summer Nationals once again sanctioned the program, which drew a whopping 57 competitors to the Buckeye State oval to vie for the $10,000 winner's check. Jeep Van Wormer stopped the clock third quickest in his group during the qualifying session and ran second through much of his heat race until a flat tire on the last lap dropped him to third in the prelim.

After rolling off from the outside of the ninth row in the 40-lap headliner, Jeep was making his way through the talented field when his front bumper unfortunately folded under. Not being able to steer his #55 machine properly, the Pinconning, Michigan ace was forced to head pitside to settle for a disappointing twentieth place performance.

When the weekend rolled around in the Buckeye State, the attention turned to the annual running of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' In the $12,000 to win preliminary show on Friday evening, Jeep once again transferred into the 25-lapper by virtue of running fifth in his heat race. In the contest, which was pushed back to Saturday afternoon due to inclement weather, the Pinconning, Michigan ace moved up a couple of spots to finish sixteenth in the final rundown. Later that night, Jeep wound up ninth in his heat race and eighth in his B-Main, which unfortunately forced him to miss out on the $128,000 to win 'Dirt Late Model Dream.'

Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 team kicked off their version of the 2022 racing season in a busy three-race week from April 26-29 in the states of Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.

At Brownstown on Wednesday evening, Jeep advanced to sixth in his heat race and fourth in his B-Main, but that once again left him just short of transferring into the 50-lap headliner.
