For Immediate Release: October 8, 2018, Middletown, New York
Source: Jeff Heotzler, Veteran Dirt Track Race Car Driver, scores another race on his Hall of Fame resume while putting the #J17 Extreme Energy Solutions/Four Star Motorsports/Straw Ridge Big Block Modified in Victory Lane at the Orange County Fair Speedway on June 9, 2018 and on September 8, 2018; the recent win gives Heotzler guaranteed starting spot for the famed Eastern States Weekend 2018 big show.
The pilot known as “The Jeffer,” added another set of wins to his Hall of Fame career resume, with his 52nd and 53rd win into the history books at the House of Power, Orange County Fair Speedway, Middletown, NY. June 9, 2018 was Jeff Heotzler’s first race win of the 2018 season, which came at a good point in the year after scoring a number of DNF and top ten finishes. Heotlzer’s second win came on September 8, 2018, where he was the lucky victor in claiming the $6000 payday that accompanied the checkered flag.
The win gave Heotzler a boost in the point standings, putting him in 14th in point standings for the year, as the September 8th race was the final contest of the regular 2018 racing season at Orange County Fair Speedway.
It’s the third time Heotzler has represented Extreme Energy Solutions in winner’s circle, since teaming up. The first win as driver-team-sponsor combination came mid-season 2017.
On June 9, Heotzler qualified well, and started from the pole. Once the green flag dropped, Heotzler and his big block ride ran away from the field until he saw the checkered flag. The September 8th win came after Heotzler was able to secure yet another good starting position, where he was aligned within the front of the pack.
“Finally, I think we might have something here,” commented Heotzler, “We have been working to get the right set up for this car and really missed on it a week ago with the new track surface. But I think we are finally pointed in the right direction.”
“I really felt comfortable in the car tonight, and hopefully this is just the start of some better results this season. I am hoping I can make a few more visits here (victory lane) before it’s over.”
It’s exactly what Heotzler did, wrapping up the season in Victory lane.
Heotzler has always been an innovator in the sport. For the last three seasons, the Jeffer has spent more time in the shop than at the track, and with good reason. He has been working on some changes to the car of his own design, hoping to transfer the innovation into results and wins at the speedway.
Heotzler is in his 40th year behind the wheel, and has already mastered a number of speedways, including his home track of Orange County Fair Speedway. He holds four track championships, with over fifty-two wins at OCFS, and that is just a start to his resume. He has over 150 career wins, eleven track championships, and a series championship to boot.
“I still have a few more race seasons in me yet,” says Heotzler, “and I feel like we are just getting started. This gives us great momentum moving into Eastern States Weekend.”
With Heotlzer’s most recent visit to Victory Lane, he is guaranteed the starting position for 7th in the Big Block Modified 200 Lap contest slated for Sunday, October 21, 2018, part of Eastern States Weekend (ESW), Held at Orange County Fair Speedway, Middletown, New York.
Heotzler’s JHR Team marketing partnerships include Extreme Energy Solutions, Four Star Motorsports, Strawridge Rock & Tape, Keizer Wheels, Van Duser Concrete, and a number of manufacturer supported relationships.
Heotzler also pilots a 358 Small Block, the #75 Machine, which is the combined creation of BD Engineering and Renen Precision Inc., and also ran at the famed Hard Clay 5/8 mile track.
Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., is the parent company that offers Extreme Kleaner, H2O Energy Flow, Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments, the SMART Emissions Reducer, and E-Tech Performance/E-Missions Automotive Intelligence. Extreme also supports fellow teammates Sportsman and Small Block Modified Driver Tommy Vigh Jr., and Sportsman Drivers Connor Otten, and the Johannessen brothers, Keith and Shawn.
“We are proud of the efforts made by Heotzler and team. It’s been an honor to work with them,” added Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., the Company that is also Heotzler’s 2017/2018 main marketing partner, “Jeff has been a great Brand Ambassador for our company and through his performance has positioned the company to have a closer connection with his fan base and the sport.”
