Jones Wins In 10th Start


LANSING, Minn. — Andy Jones earned his first sprint-car victory in only his 10th race Friday night. Jones claimed the Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series event at Chateau Raceway.

“This is awesome,” Jones said. “To win in only my tenth start against a strong field like this is really cool. It was a blast to win a Challenge race last week, and now to get my first feature win is sweet. Thanks to my car owners, my sponsors and my crew.”

Jones passed early leader and 2010 UMSS Champion Cody Hahn on lap five and held off Chris Graf and Jerry Richert, Jr. for the win.
