Certainly Jimmy Stephensen deserves all the credit in the world and then some for running a Nissan powered vehicle in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.
When Nissan bailed on its title sponsorship of Short Course racing in the U.S. the lone Nissan Pro 2 of Carl Renezeder went the way of the dodo and over the past few years so have the Pro Lite Nissans of Todd Cuffaro, Casey Currie, and a host of others. A few still pop up from time to time but the only truly competitive Nissan left is Jimmy Stephensen's JS Pest Services Frontier.
The 9/25-9/26 races saw Jimmy finish in 2nd place on Saturday only 1.8 seconds behind winner and '10 class leader, Chris Brandt and was just off the podium in 4th on Sunday. Jimmy sits in 6th on the year with two races left on the weekend of 11/6-11/7.
