Jake Matheson Awarded Championships,
Announces Move to Granite State Pro Stock Series


Hillsboro, NH— Jake Matheson was among the Drivers honored on January 12th at The Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he accepted the award for the USLCI Young Lions Oval Championship. One week later, Seekonk Speedway held their Banquet for the 2018 season, where Jake was acknowledged as their Fast Fridays Legend Car Series Champion.

“Our team is grateful for the support and encouragement we’ve had this season. Our achievements would not have been possible without our fans and partners,” Matheson said. “I have met so many great people and learned so much over the last five years racing in INEX events. I will do my best to put that experience to use as I move into the next stage of my career.”

2018 marks the end of Legend Car racing for Jake. He added, “I will miss my fellow Legend Car competitors, especially those at my home track of Seekonk Speedway. I am looking forward to returning to Seekonk for Pro Stock racing in September 2019.”

JMR has officially registered to compete in the Granite State Pro Stock Series for 2019. “I am very excited to make the jump to Pro Stocks. Last season, we tried to spend as much time as possible learning in the pits at GSPSS races. We are eager for the challenges ahead. It will be an honor to be on the track with such skilled competition.”

To follow Jake’s Pro Stock rookie season, connect with JMR on social media or via the team website at www.JakeMathesonRacing.com. For info about GSPSS events and schedules, go to www.gspss.net.

JMR Clinches National Title

Hillsboro, NH— Jake Matheson Racing clinched the INEX/US Legend Cars Young Lions national championship title on Oct. 27 at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

“Last season we set the goal to be a contender for the 2018 national title,” Matheson said.  “It took a lot of effort, but we made it.”  He added, “We went into the weekend ranked third behind two very tough competitors.  So, I had my work cut out for me.”

Matheson and his team are accustomed to hard work, having raced his SignWorks New England Legend Car in more than 30 races at 11 different tracks across the country.  During the course of the season, he earned six feature wins and over 20 top five finishes.  In addition, Jake is the 2018 Legend Car Champion at Seekonk Speedway in Massachusetts, where he ran their weekly Fast Fridays Series.

At the end of the regular season, Matheson was third in the national point standings.  His bid for the title would come down to the championship race at The Bullring.  More than 100 drivers from the U.S. and abroad gathered in the Nevada desert to compete for INEX titles.  “I knew I had to finish ahead of the other two points leaders to secure the championship,” explained Matheson.  Patience was key in the caution filled race that took more than an hour to complete.  Matheson maintained the third position for many laps, waiting for a chance to pass the #97 car of Daniel Silvestri.  The opening came with just two laps left to go in the race.  Matheson passed the #97 car to finish second in the race and to clinch the #1 position in the country.

“This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication of my family and partners.  I want to thank my Crew Chief, Keith Matheson, who spent countless hours in the garage working on the car.  Also, 860 Motorsports for their technical guidance.  Thanks to all my Partners SignWorks New England, TM&M Services, Epsom Tool Rental, Dugre’s Auto Repair, Blue Wave Recreation, Bedford Barber Shop and Liberty House.”
