Rod Conley Transfers into Jackson 100 Opener at Brownstown...
(September 25, 2022) Rod Conley and his #71R team were in action at the legendary Brownstown Speedway on September 23-24, as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned the 43rd Annual 'Jackson 100' at the 1/4-mile Brownstown, Indiana oval. On Friday night in the $10,000 to win weekend opener, Rod timed in fourteenth fastest in Group A during qualifying before placing seventh in his loaded heat race and third in his B-Main. He then started from the inside of the eleventh row in the 40-lap feature, which was pushed back to late Saturday afternoon due to persistent rain showers.

A $20,000 paycheck was the up for grabs on Saturday evening in the 'Jackson 100.' Rod ran eighth in his heat race and fourth in his B-Main, which unfortunately narrowly kept him out of the 100-lap headliner that was ultimately won by Tim McCreadie.
