The 2023 Speedway Motors IMCA SUPER NATIONALS FUELED BY Casey's brought together some of the fiercest dirt track racing competitors from across the globe to Boone, Iowa. Among them was one of our favorite standout drivers- Jonathan Mawhinney, from Las Vegas, NV.
Competing in the highly intense MODIFIED division, Mawhinney made sure his presence was felt, "Overall, the SuperNationals was a mixed bag for us. On the positive side, our car was super fast and we’re really getting it dialed" said Jonathan. Without a doubt, the highlight for him and the MMS team was an incredible Wednesday heat race win against some of the toughest competition in the country.
However, luck wasn’t on their side the rest of the week with the infamous draws. Trying to qualify in 8 laps against this competition proved to be extremely challenging. "Unfortunately, we found ourselves starting at the back of the heats the next two nights. But as always, every race we learn from. We are continuously tuning, tweaking, and digging, especially when it comes to our car setup" said Mawhinney.
The Mawhinney Motorsports Team and the 12LF race car, with Mawhinney in the seat, exhibited a masterclass in precision, speed, and strategy. From the onset, it was evident that Mawhinney had come to the IMCA SUPER NATIONALS with a clear agenda – to race hard and leave an indelible mark.
Behind every great racer is a team and a set of sponsors who provide support and belief in the racer's vision. Delta Gunite & Shotcrete has been a pivotal part of Mawhinney's journey. Their sponsorship along with Off The Wahl, Stoney’s Rocking Country, Precision Performance, Two Four Speed, and Lane Frost Brand are more than just a logo on the car; they represent a shared passion for racing and an unyielding belief in Mawhinney's potential. "In addition to our sponsors, I'd really like to express my gratitude to some very special people, my pops, Matthew Mawhinney, your unwavering support means everything to me. Thank you to my new wife Jamie, it’s always great to have you at the track and a big thanks to Charlie and Joey 'The Jet', their contributions to our program are immeasurable" said Jonathan.
With another summer of Midwest racing under his belt, the horizon looks promising for Jonathan Mawhinney. A strong showing at SuperNationals is what we expect to see from the 12LF in the future. As we gear up for more dirt racing this fall, one thing is clear - the MMS team is going to be one to watch out for.
