Swanson Runs Down Bright At Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — Jake Swanson could smell the blood in the water. Directly in front of him, leader Alex Bright was getting tighter and tighter every lap. “It really is an honor to drive all over the country and race,” Swanson said. “I knew I was in trouble before two-to-go; I started to struggle with about 15-to-go,” Bright said. “I knew [Bright] was getting tighter and tighter,” Swanson said. “If I could make sure that I carried speed into Turns 1-2, [Bright] would get tight and I’d be able to make that ground back up as long as I got a good restart.”. “I knew I was running out of time, but there were a couple spots where I could see down there on the bottom,” Swanson said. “If I could just get some momentum and get close enough to [Bright], I could stick something down there and at least break his momentum. “Running back in Pennsylvania, we don’t really get cushions, we don’t run on the small tracks like that,” Bright said.
