Jacob Gallardo drives the #J17 USMTS Modified Class car.  His home track is SNM Speedway but he can also be found racing at El Paso Speedway.  He lives in Las Cruces, NM.

Team members helping Jacob are:  Dad - Fito Gallardo, Jackie Jones, Marco and Screech.  Fito Gallardo is the car owner.

Jacob started racing in 2006 in the Street Stock Class at SNM Speedway because he grew up around it.  His Dad got him a race car for his birthday.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include Rookie of the Year in Street Stock in '06, first year in Modified got his first win in '08.

The thrill of racing for Jacob is the rush!  You don't think about anything in the race car.  Nothing else matters.  His most exciting racing moment was winning his first Modified race.  He's most proud of winning 6 in a row at his own two race tracks.

Jacob's racing hero is his Dad.

Of racing, Jacob says, "Dirt racing is the most exciting thing to watch if you just sit!".
