VAN WORMER RISES TO THE TOP IN THE LAND "DOWN UNDER"
KWINANA BEACH, AUSTRALIA (DECEMBER 18, 2010) Jeep Van Wormer made his mark at the land "Down Under" as he raced several skilled Australians at the Perth Motorplex in Western Australia. Van Wormer's runs looked better and better all day finally resulting with a podium in his #55 car running VP's Late Model Plus.
Jeep took on this challenging, yet rewarding Australian debut running one of his old MasterSbilt racecars. He started seventh in the first heat race and worked his way past five competitors en route to a solid second place preliminary finish. After starting fourth in his second heat race, Jeep slingshot himself to the front of the pack to grab the 'W' in preliminaries.
Van Wormer, a skilled young driver from Michigan continued a well-fought batte rolling off from the outside of the front row in the 20-lap feature event. He kept all of the great Aussie drivers in his rear view throughout the A-Main and squeaked through two caution flags to claim his first victory on Australian soil. Great driving and machine consistency go a long way on the dirt. Jeep Van Wormer proudly uses VP products to keep his car running the way he expects it to.
