RTJ finishes ninth in Florida Dirt Nationals opener

SSI Motorsports and driver Ricky Thornton Jr. invaded All-Tech Raceway (Lake City, Fla.) on Friday afternoon to compete with the XR Super Series for the two-day Florida Dirt Nationals. In a field of 38 cars, Ricky outdueled front-row starters Jonathan Davenport and Ashton Winger in his heat race to pick up the 10-lap victory. Starting the feature in fourth, Thornton Jr. faded five positions in the 40-lap affair to finish ninth. (Twisted Chassis Photography)

For the $50,000-to-win program on Saturday, Thornton Jr. rebounded in his B-Main to place second after finishing ninth in his heat. Rolling off 19th for the finale, Ricky had worked his way into the top-10 and was challenging for fifth when hard contact with the turn-two wall dropped him from contention. He retired on lap 42 with eight circuits remaining.
