21 Trucks from all over the United States converged on the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Wilmington, Ohio for the second round of action in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League. This night surely didn't disappoint with one of the closest finishes that we've seen in years.
The evening started off with Jeremy Nelson aboard his Speedco Midnight Gambler 1941 panel van. Jeremy drew the test hook on the evening and after his initial pass, the officials decided to make a change to the sled. Jeremy Dropped to last and the class was reset.
Jordan Nelson would be next for team midnight with his sassy powered Whoopie Madness Ford, Jordan's pass of 288.60 would be good for 19th on the evening. "The truck ran good, but i misread the track and could've done a better spotting job". " I hope we can get things turning around and get back to the top soon", explained Jordan.
Jared Nelson and his Altamont, Illinois based Miles Beyond 300 Midnight Revenger. Jared took the Chevrolet to a distance of 293.35 which would put him in the 18th position on the evening, just one spot ahead of baby brother Jordan.
John Mumma would be the 14th hook aboard his Philo, Illinois based "After Midnight" Chevy SSR.
John's pass of 336.13 would take him into the lead, and he would watch as the next 8 trucks all took their turns at his distance. Among them would be the sullivans Big Ed Red Entry, who laid down a pass of 336.18 dropping mumma into the second spot with one truck to go. That one truck would be the "Speedco Midnight Gambler".
Jeremy Nelson took the Midnight Gambler out to a distance of 317.56 would put him in the 7th position on the evening.
John Mumma had this to say when asked about his evening. "I am tickled to death to place this well against this group of fine trucks", "I am glad it made a good pass".
Team Midnight will load up and head to the cheese state this week for the Wisconsin Dairyland Super National in Tomah, Wisconsin. Stay tuned for live updates from the pull, and as always check back here for updates. Thanks for your interest in Midnight Motorsports.
