JACOBSEN SURVIVES FOR SOUTHERN NATIONALS WIN,
MADDEN CLINCHES 5TH SERIES TITLE
August 2, 2014 - Tazewell Speedway has long been known for its fast and action-packed racing. Saturday's Shaeffer's Southern Nationals race lived up to that biling. Eric Jacobsen survived on a night of carnage and mechanical problems that saw several lead changes through the 53-lap event. Chris Madden grabbed the early lead, but surrended the lead on lap 23 with a flat left rear tire. Brad Neat inherited the lead and looked to be in charge. Neat pushed in turn 2 on a mid-race restart and handed the lead to Jacobsen. Jacobsen had to fight off Neat, then Vic Hill in the final laps to take the win. Bryan Hendrix finished second and Stacy Boles was third with only four car running at the finish.
Other winners on Saturday were Josh Field, Logan Dukes, Chuck McMahan, and Kevin Smith.
