Top-5 finish in Labor Day Showdown at Boyd's Speedway
Kicking off his Labor Day weekend, Jensen Ford invaded Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Ga.) on Friday afternoon for the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series-sanctioned Labor Day Showdown. In a field of 23 cars, Ford’s second fastest qualifying time in his group locked him into the fourth-starting position for the opening night feature. With $4,000 on the line, Jensen ran a steady pace throughout the 40-lapper to finish fourth. He trailed Donald McIntosh, Sam Seawright, and Cruz Skinner across the line with Jason Croft coming in fifth.
