Jonathan started racing in 2010 in the
Hornets Class at Macon Speedway because he'd helped his Uncle Roger
Drake for years and wanted to try his hand at driving instead of
wrenching. His first win was that same year. Career
highlights include first year in Hornets at Macon Speedway won the
Amateur Hornet Track Championship and 7 Features.
The thrill of racing for Jonathan is
that there's nothing like turning left and right at the same time, full
throttle. His most exciting racing moment was his first win right
after losing his best friend, Shawn Bohm. He's most proud of
winning the Track Championship his first year.
Jonathan's racing hero is his Uncle
