Wisconsin Dells, WI (June 28, 2014)  Jonathan and the Eilen & Sons Motorsports Team found themselves on the podium for a second week in a row. “We are all excited to have finally figured out the bugs and are finishing up here,” stated Eilen. “Now we just have to figure out how to get a win!”

Eilen qualified in the eighth position for the 100 lap feature on Saturday night.  After a fast-dash qualifying race, where he finished second, he would find himself starting on the outside of the second row for the feature race.

Racing got underway and Eilen found himself amongst the top four cars as they quickly divided into single file.  Eilen continued to work hard through the multiple cautions and was able to maintain in the top five.  As cars began to fade, Eilen began to shine.  Jonathan had made his way to third place and was working hard to catch the second place driver.

Unfortunately lap-traffic would play a factor in Jonathan’s mission to capitalize on second place and with no cautions the rest of the race, Eilen would happily settle for third.

“Two weeks in a row in third isn’t too bad” stated Eilen in a post-race interview. “Now we just have to figure out how to get around Majeski (who finished second the last two races).”

Another very short break for the ARCA Midwest Tour drivers as they head to Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Saturday, July 5 for the Coors Light Summer Shootout at Hawkeye Downs Speedway.  Qualifying will begin at 4:00 p.m. and racing at 6:00 p.m.  There will also be a concert and fireworks after the races!
