February 12, 2018 - DJ Shannon Begins 2018 Season With Arizona Mod Tour
1 DJ and the Shannon Motorsports team kicked off their 2018 racing season at the newly formed Arizona Modified Tour, held at 3 tracks across Arizona in early February. The opening tow nights were held at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Az this past Friday and Saturday nights. DJ's opening night was filled with mechanical gremlins as he didn't finish the heat or b-main due to carburetor issues but the team rallied and got those troubles behind them for night #2. DJ ran 4th in his heat race and just missed a transfer spot into the night's feature by finishing 5th in the night's b-main.

Sunday night, the tour moved to the Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, AZ and the night started off great as DJ raced from 4th to 2nd in his heat race, putting him on the front row for one of the b-mains. DJ won that event with ease, putting his #32s in the 17th starting position for the feature. During the feature, he ran inside the top 15 early and then pulled in to save his equipment. Monday night was the second night at CAR and DJ ran 4th in his heat, second in the b-main and advanced from his 24th starting spot to 18th at the checkered.

The tour moves to the Canyon Speedway Park and the Cocopah Speedway for the remaining events this week and weekend.
