Woes Slow James in Hoosier Dirt Classic
15, 2022) The
Scott James Motorsports team traveled to Brownstown Speedway in
Brownstown, Indiana on Saturday evening, May 14, as the 39th edition
of the 'Hoosier Dirt Classic' was held at the famed 1/4-mile oval.
Scott James ran second in heat race action and later advanced up
to as high as third in the running order of the $3,000 to win Super
Late Model feature event. Unfortunately, mechanical issues under
the hood of his #83 mount halted his bid for the victory in the
unsanctioned special event and dropped Scott to a disappointing
fourteenth place effort. Complete results from last night at Brownstown

scratching from the Castrol FloRacing Night in America Series opener

in a similar show at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana.

session prior to finishing tenth in his stacked heat race and seventh

April 30 at Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. Scott placed third
in heat race action at the Cincinnati-area venue and later rolled
off from the inside of the third row in the 30-lap feature event.

Indiana hotshoe steered past a trio of competitors to land an impressive
runner-up effort behind only victor Tim McCreadie! Complete results
