OCTOBER 9, 2017
Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 team celebrated in victory lane for the second straight weekend on October 7-8! After Berlin Raceway was washed out early on Saturday, the team's transporter trekked to the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio for the annual running of the 'DIRTcar Fall Nationals.' Jeep clicked off the fifteenth quickest time overall during the American Late Model Series (ALMS) qualifying session on Saturday evening prior to picking up the win in heat race action.

When the 40-lap headliner went green, Jeep led the talented field to the start of the race from the pole position. The Pinconning, Michigan ace was then in control of the pack when rain halted the 'DIRTcar Fall Nationals' after only sixteen circuits were completed. On Sunday afternoon when the contest was restarted, Jeep fended off all challenges to score the $5,000 winner's check ahead of Bobby Pierce, Kent Robinson, Jon Henry, and Jacob Hawkins! The 'DIRTcar Fall Nationals' triumph marked Jeep's 35th career ALMS victory, which is just one behind all-time leader Kris Patterson!

OCTOBER 1, 2017
In a year that Jeep Van Wormer has raced sparingly due to a new business venture, the Pinconning, Michigan driver broke out in a big way for his first win of the 2017 season on Saturday evening, September 30 at the dirt-covered Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan! Jeep knocked down the quickest lap overall of the 29 entrants during the American Ethanol Late Model Tour qualifying session to earn Fast Time honors and later placed third in his inverted heat race.

After drawing the third starting spot prior to the drop of the green flag in the 40-lap 'POET BioFuels 40,' Jeep took command of the field on an early restart and dominated the remainder of the show at the sprawling 7/16-mile paved facility. Jeep lapped all but three competitors and won by a hefty 7.524 seconds to bag the $7,500 payday ahead of Dona Marcoullier, Brandon Thirlby, Ryan VanderVeen, and Rich Neiser!
