Jeremy Z and family spent an entertaining and enjoyable day at the Joy facility in Tennessee.
Joy had all kinds of interesting displays and fun things for the kids to do, as well as providing a tour of their facility.
Jeremy was excited about having the opportunity to race on a new kind of dirt track for the first time at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap. Considering there were no hot laps to even practice on a strange, new track, all went well. The walls of this track were on a greater angle and the track was much shorter than he was used to. His pit crew consisting of his dad Jim, and his two uncles Dale and Lee, were a bit concerned because of the slope and Jeremy never racing on this type of track. His mom was filming while the rest of his family had to go back to the hotel since his girls were falling asleep. The race didn't start until 9PM and they had driven almost 9 hours the day before, getting in late to the hotel.
Jeremy did well. He started 15th and finished 9th in the 1st 20 lap feature! He then came home with an 8th place finish in the 2nd 20 lap feature! Two top tens....way to go Jeremy!!! Thanks again to Joy Mining for providing such a great day for the Joy family, race car drivers and friends.
