Papich Banks $10,555 Slocum 50 Prize

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa ā€” After a long time of trying and countless travel miles from his California home, Jason Papich finally broke through on Saturday night to score his first Lucas Oil MLRA victory in the 13thĀ annual running of the Slocum 50 at the 34 Raceway. Papich started thirdĀ on the grid for the 50-lap main event behind pole sitter Garrett Alberson and four-time Slocum 50 winner Bobby Pierce. Just prior to the caution Papich was able to clear Alberson and move into second. On the 32ndĀ lap, Papich navigated the low line and move to the top spot for the first time on the night. Papich continued to distance himself from the field as Pierce jumped the turn one and two cushion with eight laps to go, resulting in an eighth-place finish. Papich scored the win by 1.66 seconds over Jackson Jr. for the biggest win of his career.
