Jake’s venture into late model dirt racing had a very distinct “Aha moment” this past Saturday night. After starting in seventh in the 50 lap feature, he got as high as third, moved back to fourth and ran the final 20 laps attempting to repass the third place car. Jake was giving about 200 hp to the field with a crate motor but was able to easily fend off those trying to pass him. The third place car, also with the 200 hp advantage recently won a big money race at Volusia so he was a seasoned driver with a good car. During those final 20 laps, Jake’s confidence and comfort level increased dramatically and it was obvious he had a great feel for the car and was driving hard.
We will be at Desoto in Bradenton next weekend and at Showtime in Pinellas the following week and then back to Ocala and BRP for another adventure on dirt. Come out and support Jake, this dirt stuff is fun.
