VINCENTOWN, N.J. (February 28, 2022) – Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports opened their 2022 season in a big way, eventually nailing down a top-ten result in Lincoln Speedway’s season-opening Icebreaker 30 on Sunday afternoon, February 27.
In all, it was a productive day in the Pigeon Hills for the Vincentown, New Jersey, native, kicking things off with a runner-up result in the program’s first heat race, ultimately securing a fourth row starting position by way of feature redraw. The former Williams Grove Speedway winner would go on to finish ninth, maintaining his place within the top-ten after starting seventh.
Adding to the weekend headline, Whittall’s Icebreaker finish is the best Lincoln Speedway result of his young career, bettering a tenth-place score from a start nearly two seasons ago.
Over 30 cars made the call for yesterday’s Icebreaker.
“It feels good to get the season started like that. That’s a huge momentum kick for this team and that’s exactly what we needed. We’re not regular Lincoln visitors, so to go in there and knock off a top-ten in our first try says a ton,” Whittall explained, driver of the Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, No. 67 sprint car. “Our initial plan for next week is to test at Port Royal on Saturday then race their opener on Sunday. We may change that a bit and try again at Lincoln on Saturday instead. We’ll evaluate things this week and make a decision.”
Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2022 season with Port Royal Speedway’s $5,000-to-win season opener on Sunday afternoon, March 6. Action is set to begin at 2 p.m. For more information, please visit Port Royal Speedway online at www.portroyalspeedway.com.
The “Speed Palace” will host a test and tune session on Saturday, March 5.
Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports would like to thank all of their marketing partners including: JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise.
