Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / BROCK ZEARFOSS RACING – JONESTOWN, PA – Forced to wait an extra day due to the cancellation of Port Royal Speedway’s previously scheduled season opener, the “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss officially kicked-off his 2018 campaign with an appearance at the world-famous Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Sunday afternoon, March 11.
Zearfoss, a two-time winner during competition at The Grove in 2017, finished fifth during the annual lidlifter, launching the afternoon program with a heat race victory. The Jonestown, Pa., native started eighth on the feature grid.
“We’re never going to complain about racing inside the top-five during our first start of the season,” Zearfoss, pilot of the Brock Zearfoss Racing/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Meckley’s Limestone/Central Builders Supply Co./Berkebile Oil Company/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./No. 3Z sprint car, said. “Our goal this year is to top what we did last year, so I would say we are off to a pretty good start.”
“The first weekend is always a test,” Zearfoss continued. “We proved we can be competitive right out of the box. I owe everything to those who have been behind me from day one.”
Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue their 2018 campaign with another Central Pennsylvania doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, March 16-17. Zearfoss will kick things off at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, followed by the season opener at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Saturday, March 17.
