LAUREL, Del. — “I’m still at a loss for words.”
A week removed from the season finale and crowning night at Delaware International Speedway, AC Delco PSC Modified champion Jordn Justice is still searching for the right way to describe his dominant season at the half-mile dirt track.
Hailing from Laurel, Del., Justice scored his first title during his third season in the Crate 602 Sportsman division, recording five victories and no finishes outside the top four in the competitive series.
Justice credited an attitude of ‘consistency is key’ as a part of his breakthrough championship.
“It was pretty tough,” Justice said. “There was at least five or more cars that could win the race each and every weekend. So, yeah, it was really difficult at points. It was kinda a shock, quite honestly. [At the beginning of the season], we aimed for consistency and it ended up working out.”
Justice took the crown by 215 points over runner-up and veteran Dwayne Crockett.
“I am still at a loss for words [for describing how dominant our season was],” Justice said. “We raced go-karts for about nine seasons and won just two championships — and even that was in the same season. So, the fact that we did [win the title] and how we did it … it was really something special.”
Moving forward, Justice is hoping to continue his momentum and confidence into the rescheduled ‘September Showdown’ at Georgetown Speedway on Friday, Oct. 14, after rainstorms postponed the prestigious event.
Earlier this season, Justice and his No. 94 L&J Sheetmetal team finished second in the historic ‘Blast at the Beach’ event at Georgetown — falling just short to hotshoe Crate 602 Sportsman racer Brandon Grosso.
However, that strong run gives Justice confidence as he preps to return to the facility.
“We found a few things at the last [Georgetown] race [in August] that really helped us [improve],” Justice said. “We have also made a few more adjustments for this upcoming race. I was looking forward to racing this past Friday, but [unfortunately rain kept us from that]. I think we will have something for them though.”
Beyond this season, Justice has expressed his intentions to remain in the AC Delco PSC Modified division and defend his track championship at the Delmar, Del. circuit.
“At this point, our plan is to return to Delaware and defend the championship,” Justice expressed. “We want at least one more season [under our belts], before we look to do anything else. So, we are just trying to keep the gold in sight.”
With a little swagger in his step, the potential and confidence is unlimited for Justice heading into the offseason — and that could spell even more trouble for the competition next year.
