JACKSON, Minn. – Ryan Timms is $5,000 richer and now has his eyes focused on a $10,000 bonus.

Timms earned the feature triumph on Saturday during The Border Battle presented by Livewire Printing & Altenburg Construction hosted by Jackson Motorplex.

By virtue of capturing the $5,000-to-win Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association feature on Saturday and garnering the $4,000-to-win main event on Friday, Timms only needs a victory on Sunday at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD, to take home the $10,000 Buffalo Wild Wings Triple Crown Bonus for sweeping the weekend.

“I really want that bonus for all three,” he said. “It was pretty nerve-wracking and the race felt like it took forever leading the whole time. The track crew gave us a great track. It was really on the wall in (turns) one and two.”

Timms led the distance of the 25-lap feature, which was slowed by a red flag and three other cautions during the first half of the race. The final 13 laps went caution-free and Timms took advantage to win by 5.975 seconds.

“We didn’t really see much of him I didn’t feel like,” said Matt Juhl, who made a late-race pass to secure the runner-up result. “I’m happy for the team and hopefully we continue to do this the rest of the week.”

Ayrton Gennetten rounded out the podium.

“I was just pushing so hard trying to stay up with Ryan and made too many mistakes and let Matt get to me,” he said. “I never should have been in a position to lose second. Hats off to Ryan. This was the best we’ve felt here. Hopefully we can build off of this for tomorrow and try to get a little better.”

Brooke Tatnell placed fourth and Austin McCarl hustled from 16th to fifth to earn the Quick Change Rebuilds Hard Charger Award.

Jake Kouba outlasted Johnny Parsons III during an epic Mid-American Renegades Sprint Car Series feature.

The duo raced side by side throughout most of the 12-lap feature with Parsons III leading the first three laps. Kouba took the top spot on Lap 4 before Parsons III regained the lead on Lap 6. Kouba made the race-winning pass on Lap 9 and held on to win by 0.643 seconds.

“That was a lot of fun,” he said. “I love racing with Johnny. Racing side by side with him for that many laps was great. I was hoping he’d disappear out of my view just a little bit sooner.

“I love this place. It’s so much fun coming back here, seeing all these familiar faces.”

Jeff Pellersels finished third with Joshua Hulberg placing fourth and Chuck Schumacher fifth.
