MILLVILLE, NJ – Abel Motorsports with driver Jacob Abel completed the triple header race weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park with a pair of 5th place finishes, and a 4th place finish in race 3. The strong points weekend moves Jacob Abel into 6th position in the 2021 Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires drivers’ title points.

Qualifying for race 1 did not go as the team had hoped with Jacob Abel ending up 8th, but during the race Abel managed to stay out of trouble and drove a very smart race getting up to 5th where he would wind up finishing.

Race 2 qualifying seemed to be going much better with Abel swapping quick time during the majority of the session, but ultimately he did not have the outright speed for the top few positions ending up 7th. The big story in race 2 was the wet conditions that the drivers were forced to deal with. Once again Abel kept the No. 51 Crosley Brands car out of trouble and steadily ran his race on his way to his second 5th place finish and the fastest lap of the race.

With a better starting position of 5th for race 3, optimism was high that Abel would finish higher up in the order than the two previous races and he delivered just that. On the opening lap, Abel got around Reece Gold for 4th place and steadily drove away. Unfortunately, not able to catch 3rd, the 20-year-old Abel settled for a 4th place finish and a very solid points weekend.

“The weekend started off tough with qualifying, but we had a setup that allowed me to be competitive in the races. The key was staying out of trouble and keeping the Cooper Tires on track, and we did just that. With one final race weekend left, the only goal we have is wins. I love Mid-Ohio and with a race weekend there already under our belt I know we can be in contention for some wins,” said Jacob Abel.

Abel Motorsports heads into the final race weekend of the year at Mid-Ohio on October 1-3.
