Jeffery, Bodio Lead Jim Beaver eSports Into Final Rounds of EastWest Modified Season

Just three rounds remain in the EastWest Promotions SidsView.com Modified Series, and Jim Beaver eSports is looking to reclaim the top spot in the championship.

Drivers Keith Jeffery and Dave Bodio have combined for the last three series championships, with Bodio picking up the second-ever series title and Jeffery going back to back in the last two seasons. With drop weeks factored in, they come off of the final off week of the season third and fifth in the series championship, looking to take the fight to top series rivals Brandon Wilkinson and Ty Majeski starting with tonight’s 9D Creative 125 at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

Jeffery’s title defense saw him take his first win of the season in the Thelemic Printshop 150 at Martinsville Speedway in May, making him just the second driver in series history to crack 10 career victories, and has taken home top 10 finishes in all but two races. He also spent much of the season in the championship lead, with an average take home of 82 points per race and just a single DNF.

Bodio, meanwhile, is chasing his fifth consecutive top-three finish in series points. After scoring a series-high four race wins in the previous season, he opened the championship with a third place at Stafford Motor Speedway, and has added two more top-fives and four top-10s to his count for the season. The winningest driver in series history with 15, he’ll have a great shot to match his car number 16 in the final three rounds of the season—he’s a past winner at Southern National Motorsports Park, host of the series’ penultimate round, the Southern 150 presented by Thelemic Printshop.

Regularly joining Jeffery and Bodio in the series are fellow JBeS team members Bobby Rafferty, Matt Everhart, and 2020 iRacing World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model World Championship qualifier Brandyn Proudfoot. The trio have combined for four top-10 finishes in part-time schedules, including a fourth place finish for Proudfoot at Myrtle Beach in April.

  • June 11: 9D Creative 125, North Wilkesboro Speedway (day)
