SEPTEMBER 13, 2020
Iron Motorsports closed out their 2020 season at Eldora Speedway on September 10-12 in the 'Intercontinental Classic,' which was an invitation-only event - taking the place of the fabled 'World 100' - held in front of no race fans at the Rossburg, Ohio facility. The three-day extravaganza at the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant started with a pair of $10,000 to win preliminary programs. On Thursday night armed with a brand-new Jay Dickens engine, Jeep Van Wormer fought electrical issues that caused his motor to miss in finishing tenth in his heat race and seventh in his B-Main. Jeep then fought more mechanical problems on Friday evening, which caused him to run ninth in both his heat race and B-Main.

Things then wrapped up at the "Big E" on Saturday with the 'Intercontinental Classic' finale. Jeep placed seventh in his loaded heat race, but his car finally came alive during the consolation race. Looking to make his first feature of the weekend, the Pinconning, Michigan standout ran in a transfer spot throughout the first half of the B-Main before catching a rut and slapping the concrete wall. Jeep wound up retiring in the seventh spot and unfortunately missed out on the $50,000 to win headliner as well.

AUGUST 23, 2020
Jeep Van Wormer, of Pinconning, Michigan, entered two of the final three DIRTcar Summer Nationals contests, which were held in his home state over the August 20-22 weekend. On Thursday night at Thunderbird Raceway in Muskegon, Michigan, Jeep started off his evening by laying down the fifth quickest lap in Group A during the qualifying session. After grabbing the third transfer spot through his heat race, Jeep rolled off from the inside of the fifth row in the $5,000 to win headliner. He then drove his #55 machine up to battle for a top five finish in the 40-lapper before slipping back to seventh in the waning laps.

The #55 team was back in competition on Saturday evening, as the "Hell Tour" finale took place at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan. A $10,000 top prize was up for grabs at the Wolverine State venue and 31 entrants signed into the pit area to do battle. Unfortunately, Jeep's night was a short one, as he made heavy contact with the wall during qualifying and he was forced to scratch from the remainder of the program.

AUGUST 9, 2020
The Iron Motorsports team returned to racing competition over the August 7-8 weekend at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan. The annual running of the 'Dan Salay Memorial Wood Tic' event took center stage at the Wolverine State oval and a $10,000 payday was on the line. In the qualifying session for the 34 competitors on Friday night, Jeep Van Wormer started off his weekend by knocking down the second fastest lap in his group.

Following a third place effort in his heat race, Jeep wound up third once again in Friday's qualifying feature. After rolling off from the inside of the second row in the 75-lap headliner on Saturday evening, the Pinconning, Michigan ace eyed his first win of 2020 in only his sixth event. Jeep stayed towards the front of the field throughout the contest, made a late charge and bid for the win, and eventually settled for an impressive runner-up performance behind only race winner Travis Stemler!

Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 team invaded a pair of Wolverine State venues over the June 12-13 weekend, as two DIRTcar Racing special events were held at Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan and Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan. On Friday night at nearby Tri-City, a $3,000 top prize was up for grabs for the 35 Super Late Model competitors that signed in at the pit gate. Jeep clicked off the fourth fastest lap in his group during qualifying prior to finishing third in heat race action. After rolling off from the outside of the fifth row in the A-Main, Jeep blitzed past eight competitors and hard charged to a close runner-up performance behind only race winner Rusty Schlenk!

At Merritt on Saturday evening, a $5,000 winner's check was on the line and Jeep started off his night by knocking down the fourth quickest time in his group during qualifying. After experiencing ignition problems during his heat race in finishing fifth, Jeep started the 50-lap headliner from the inside of the eighth row. The Pinconning, Michigan ace did not stay at the back for long, as he blasted to the front of the field and was eventually paid for a third place podium effort behind only victor Dona Marcoullier and runner-up Chad Finley.

JUNE 7, 2020
The 2020 racing season finally got underway for the Iron Motorsports team on June 4-6 at the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, as the 'Dirt Late Model Stream Invitational' took place at the 1/2-mile, high-banked dirt oval. Jeep Van Wormer was one of the 48 drivers invited to the "Big E" to take place in the three-day marquee event, which started with a pair of $10,000 to win preliminary programs. On Thursday night, Jeep finished tenth in his heat race and eleventh in his B-Main, which unfortunately kept him out of the 30-lap feature. At Eldora on Friday evening, the Pinconning, Michigan ace once again missed out on the 30-lapper after placing ninth in his loaded heat race and eighth in his B-Main.

A whopping $50,000 payday was then on the line at Eldora Speedway on Saturday in the 'Dirt Late Model Stream Invitational' finale. To commemorate the track's 67th season in operation, the feature distance was 67 laps in length. Jeep was much better throughout the night and vied for a coveted transfer position into the headliner. However, with finishes of fifth in both his heat race and his B-Main, Jeep was forced to watch the exciting A-Main that was eventually won by Tim McCreadie.
