With 33 Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series entries on the grounds, Ford clocked in second-fastest in his group before placing first in his heat. Rolling off fourth for the $12,000-to-win A-Main, Jensen suffered a broken driveshaft late in the 50-lapper that led to an early exit. He was credited with an 11th-place finish.
