The thrill of racing for Jason is winning
and the chicks! His most exciting racing moment was beating the 28
car field at 5 Mile Point which is 10 miles from his home, against a full
field of dirt regulars, starting mid field, passing everyone on the
outside groove ...took the lead with 2 to go and went on for his first
Dirt win ever! He's most proud of his 1998 Legend Pro Point National

Of racing, Jason says, "It's not as easy
as it looks!".
