JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 05, 2012) Fort Atkinson’s Jason Erickson kicked off his 2011 Late Model Title defense in style on Saturday night by capturing the Radio Doctor 50 lap Late Model feature on season opening night at Wisconsin’s Action Track. On a night in which he also laid claim to quick time in qualifying, Erickson looked to start a quest to add a rare fifth championship to his racing resume in the 2012 campaign.

Bob Kahler and Bruce Lee paced the field of hot shoes to the green flag as Kahler took early control on lap one. Trent Erdman charged up to second behind Kahler as Lee dropped back to third.

Erdman began to apply heavy pressure to the early leader as the pair of drivers stretched their lead over the field. Caution flew on lap ten closing the pack back together for the restart with Kahler showing the way followed by Erdman in second and Chris Quam riding in third. The two leaders once again opened up a large advantage as racing resumed while Kyle Jarlsberg made his way into the top five. Jarlsberg cleared for the third position at the midway point of the event as he set his sights on the duo out front. Jarlsberg caught them on lap 30 as he began to work the low side of Erdman for second. Jarlsberg completed the pass for second on lap 32 and began to challenge Kahler for the point. Jarlsberg finally got a good run underneath the leader as he drew even with 11 laps remaining. Jarlsberg cleared for the top spot just before the caution waved on lap 41. After another brief caution on the restart, Casey Johnson slipped past Kahler and pulled Erickson along with him for third. Another caution on lap 47 set up a shootout to the finish. As the green flew once again, Johnson took a peek under Jarlsberg. The pair of competitors touched as they entered turn one sending Jarlsberg spinning. The resulting caution forced both drivers to the rear of the field for the restart, handing the point over to Erickson with Kahler back in second. Erickson cruised through the final circuits to see the checkers first and pick up his first feature of 2012. Kahler came home second followed by Quam, Jerry Eckhardt and John Ovadal Jr.

JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, September 17, 2011) Fort Atkinson’s Jason Erickson capped off a season in which he captured the Jefferson Speedway Late Model title for the fourth time by also laying claim to the 2011 Wisconsin State Championship. Erickson took over the lead at the midway point of the 100 lap main event and drove off to collect the hardware that accompanies the title of State Champion.

By virtue of winning their semi final races, Kyle Jarlsberg and John Ovadal Jr led the field of 25 stellar pilots to the drop of the green flag. After battling side by side on the opening circuit, Jarlsberg grabbed sole possession of the top spot on lap two. Erickson charged under Ovadal a lap later, entering into a fight for the second spot. Erickson took control of second on lap five as the leaders lined up single file. The leaders began to maneuver heavy lapped traffic just before the first of four cautions slowed the field on lap 43. After another quick caution a lap later, Erickson made his move. Erickson began to peek to the low side of Jarlsberg looking for an opening. On lap 48, the duo made slight contact entering turn one which allowed Erickson to draw even with Jarlsberg down the backstretch. Erickson motored into the lead on lap 49 just before caution number three appeared. Once racing resumed, Erickson moved out to a comfortable lead with Jarlsberg holding steady in second. With twenty laps remaining, Jarlsberg spun hard into the turn three wall, coating the track with fluid and forcing the final caution of the event. Erickson restarted as the leader, this time with Ovadal running in second and Zack Riddle in third. As racing got back underway, Riddle slipped past Ovadal and set his sights on Erickson at the point. But Erickson flexed his muscle over the final circuits as he cruised to the checkers to pick up the win. Riddle finished in second with Tim Sargent, Casey Johnson and Doug Hahn rounding out the top five.

The battle for second began to heat up on lap 44, this time between Eckhardt and James. With ten laps remaining, James cleared for second with Johnson in tow for third. The leaders began to encounter lapped traffic on lap 56, but Scheel stayed strong as he saw the checkers first for the win. James finished second with Johnson, Eckhardt and Jason Erickson rounding out the top five.

The victory is the first on the season for the Rio pilot as he looks to close the gap in the standings between himself and point leader Jason Erickson.

Bruce Lee and Brandon Pendleton led the field to green with Lee sliding into command through turns one and two on the opening circuit. Shaun Scheel followed past Pendleton as he immediately began to pressure the early leader on lap two.

Scheel got loose on lap 27, opening the door for Chris Quam and Casey Johnson to slip past. Johnson mounted a late race charge to second, but Dobbratz was well on his way to capturing the win. Johnson settled for second with John Ovadal coming home third. Lee and Kyle Jarlsberg rounded out the top five finishers.
