BLUE CORD MEDIA / JESSE J RACING ALBANY SARATOGA SPEEDWAY - 2017 kicked off at the Great Race Place in Malta, NY for Jesse Pruchnik and his Spectro OIls #42 Empire Lightning Sprint team. The family operated team made the tow from their shop in New Milford, CT to finally put the car and driver on the racing sufrace after a long winter of preparing the car.
Jesse finished the season 4th in the Empire Lightning Sprints championship points, and was awarded the series' Rookie Of The Year title. It was an exciting 2016 for the entire team, and they are heading into 2017 with realistic optimism of the possibilites that lay ahead in 2017.
Jesse was excited to be back in his Lighnting Sprint Car and the night went well for him.
"All night we were fast, and after a few changes by my Dad and Uncle Denis the car felt amazing" Pruchnik said. " It did take some getting used to driving a brand new car, the seat time was much needed, but I feel like the changes were spot on and we are ready to race there in 3 weeks!"
Jesse will practice again this week at Afton Motorsports Park, and Thunder Mountain Speedway, leading up to the Empire Lightning Sprint Series season opener at Albany-Saratoga Speedway on May 5th.
You can follow along with all the happening of the 42 team on their Jesse J Racing Facebook and Instagram pages.
