Accident Ends The First Race Of The Season
On Saturday evening, at the opening race of the Florida United Promoter's Series in Bradenton, Jake had his strongest run since moving to the super late model car. He started the 100 lap race in fifth place and quickly moved up to second, briefly gaining the lead on a restart. He ran second for 50 plus laps until he was hit in the rear and sent into the wall ending his night. Despite the accident, it was an extremely positive night because it showed that he has the ability, when his car is right, to run at the front of the pack. Jake wishes to thank all those who have sent their thoughts and prayers his way, he really appreciates it.
Jake's upcoming schedule includes a D.A.R.E. talk to 5th grade students on Friday, appearance at the Palm Chevrolet tent at the Ocala Pumpkin Run - Horsepower in Horse Country - this Friday through Sunday, and a talk and interactive meeting with the Children's Home Society JIVE group on Sunday evening. Jake's next race will be a 100 lap Florida United Promoter's Series event at Auburndale Speedway.
