Jeremy McGrath Motorsports had a wild weekend in Reno Nevada! The team walked away with two – 2ndplace finishes and 3 fast lap awards. The JM2 crew proved to have the spirit and never give up attitude all weekend long. The team had to change a motor on Friday, and then rebuild the front right side of the Pro 2 after a massive qualifying crash on Saturday morning. The team was able to get the Maxxis backed Pro 2 truck ready for the race with only minutes to spare. Jeremy did a great job keeping the truck in the top 5. Jeremy had this to say, “ I was really surprised to even make the feature event today after that crash. I lost steering and jumped right over the K rail rolling the truck on its side. The truck was struggling with a few issues in the race, but overall I’m happy with a 5th place finish today. I gotta give it up for my crew and the ICON Vehicle Dynamics guys. They worked really hard and were very efficient to get me back on the track today.”

ICON Vehicle Dynamics Pro Lite driver Brock Heger had the MVP performance of the weekend. Brock drove his blue # 12 truck to the front of the class Saturday only to suffer a front left flat tire while passing into the lead. Brock stayed on the lead lap changing the tire under caution, however he was in 16th position with 3 laps to go. Brock surprised the announcer, crowd and the entire JM2 team by passing 15 of those trucks and taking home a 2nd place trophy and the fastest lap award! On the podium Brock was asked how did he pull of the impossible and get past all those trucks? Brock answered, “That was so much fun! I was laughing and smiling all the way around the track. I was really comfortable in my truck and Jeremy was on the radio giving me great advice where to go. There is no better feeling then passing the competition! I can’t wait for tomorrow.”

The JM2 Team will be racing in Lake Elsinore CA on September 23 and 24. Follow Jeremy @jeremymcgrath2 and Brock @brock_heger for news, images and upcoming events.
