On Friday night, Jimmy improved five spots in his first heat race to finish second and later wound up third in his final heat race of the evening. After running fifth in the fast dash, Jimmy started the 40-lap headliner on Saturday from the inside of the third row. The Menomonie, Wisconsin standout then steered to the front in the feature, made a bid for the lead on several different occasions, and eventually netted a strong runner-up performance behind only race winner Pat Doar.
