Joseph Joiner Sweeps Season Opening Weekend
Joseph Joiner opened his 2023 season with a clean sweep of the Crate Racin’ USA 604 Late Model action at Southern Raceway’s Winter Nationals aboard his Base Racing Fuel No. 10 Langenfelder Mechanical Contractors / Three Trade Consultants / Capital Race Car Crate Late Model.
He picked up the $1,000 victory on Friday night and followed it up with a $2,500 victory on Saturday evening at the Florida oval.
“It was a really good weekend for our team. My car ran great both nights and we got both wins,” Joseph Joiner said. “Hats off to Jesse (Enterkin) for two second-place finishes. He’s off to a great start to the year, and Jonathan (Joiner) did a great job running in the Top 5 both nights in the 604 division with his 602 motor.”
Hunt the Front opened their 2023 campaign on Friday night at Southern Raceway (Milton, Fla.) as Joseph Joiner, Jesse Enterkin, and Jonathan Joiner all went into battle in the $1,000-to-win Crate Racin' USA 604 Dirt Late Model event.
Joseph qualified fastest in time trials to earn the pole for the feature and went on to lead every lap on his way to the win. Meanwhile, Jesse qualified ninth but rallied to finish second. Despite being underpowered with a 602 powerplant, Jonathan qualified fifth fastest and crossed the finish line in fourth.
Action continued on Saturday night with a $2,500-to-win program, and the result was the same for Joseph. He led every lap of the feature from the pole position for his second win in as many nights.
From the second-starting position, Jesse repeated his runner-up finish in the feature from the previous night, while Jonathan notched a fifth-place finish.
Next on tap for the team is a return to Southern Raceway this Saturday night, where Jonathan will compete in the $1,000-to-win Late Model Sportsman division.
