After a successful first year on dirt and Rookie of the Year honors, Jake's 2016 season starts at All-Tech Speedway in Lake City on March 4th. Come on out, having fans in the stands is always appreciated. Our thanks to The Blue Gator for their support. If you want to become involved with Jake as a 2016 sponsor, let us know.
2015 began as a big unknown. Jake was entering the world of championship dirt racing for the first time and that meant a huge learning curve. He was entering races with considerably less engine than most of the competition and that didn’t make a lot of difference until the later part of the year when he became competitive. He finished the year with a few heat victories and several top five finishes. He also appears to be the unanimous choice for the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series Rookie of the Year. We’re all looking forward to 2016, raising funds for a larger, more competitive motor and continued success. Thanks to all who supported Jake and the team this year and we’ll see you in 2016.
This was a very good weekend for Jake as he progresses in the dirt racing program. On Friday at Bubba Speedway Park in Ocala, Jake started 21st in a field of 21 and ended with a p5. The following night at Volusia, the field was packed, 30 cars and Jake started 16th. This was a short race, 30 laps and after a series of mishaps in the back of the field, five accidents in the first 10 laps, Jake was able to put together some good runs and finished eighth. He was moving well through the field, but ran out of laps. All in all, a very good weekend and now on to Waycross Georgia for next Saturday night. Again a thanks to all the fans that came out to support the team this weekend.
