The most promising weekend of the year for Jimmy King and the U-3 Hoss Mortgage Investors Too has ended with a withdrawal.
King posted a heat victory and two second place finishes — the best performance that the mechanically plagued team has mustered all year. Alas, unspecified problems have forced the team to call it a day.

King said the team will regroup and be ready next weekend for SeaFair in Seattle.
