Jake with Liberty House Executive Director, Jeff Nelson and Operations Manager, Ashley Kitchell
JMR is proud to announce they will be partnering with Liberty House Veterans Transitional House for the 2018 season.
We are so grateful to Liberty House for all they do every day to support homeless veterans in New Hampshire. I am proud to work on their behalf to raise awareness and resources for their organization. This means so much to our team as our Crew Chief is a twenty year veteran of the US military and I was actually born in a military hospital. The veteran community is very important to us, we are planning multiple projects in support of Liberty House. You can learn more about Liberty House at http://www.libertyhousenh.org.
Our 2018 season officially started with a road trip to the U.S. Legend Car Winter Nationals at Citrus County Speedway in Inverness, FL. With over 180 cars competing, it was the biggest event our team has attended. We had an action-packed week that included a couple of decent finishes for our team and a trip to Daytona International Speedway to watch the truck races. A great week all around!
After a season with MANY highs and lows, JMR had their first Legend Car Victory on September 9 at Oxford Plains Speedway. It felt great to be back in Victory Lane!! Special Thanks to our Crew Chief, Keith Matheson, our man in the Pits, Chris Falcone and our Partners, SignWorks New England and Epsom Tool Rental.
J. Matheson and C. Huntress at NHMS Banquet
Although race season has not officially started yet in the Northeast, our team has already had an eventful 2017. In February, Jake received the First Place trophy at the banquet to honor the champions in the SignWorks Oval Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Later in February, our team took a road trip to the Legend Car Winter National Event at Citrus County Speedway in Inverness, FL. It felt good to get back on the track and to see so many Legend Car drivers from all over the country!

Next stop for the JMR team was the Frank Maratta Race-a-Rama Auto Show held at the Eastern States Expo in West Springfield, MA. It was great to talk to so many fans about Legend Car racing at the Granite State Legends booth.

Jake Matheson Racing, LLC was pleased to present a donation to Operation Homefront, the national nonprofit organization that provides emergency assistance to military families and wounded warriors.
“Our team was honored to support military families this season”, Matheson stated. “We are happy to have met our goal to raise at least $1,000 for Operation Homefront. We achieved this through promotion on multiple social media platforms, offering team gear for contributions to Operation Homefront through our website, and by donating a portion of our winnings.”
2016 Champs S. Buffington & J. Matheson
The 2016 races for the SignWorks Oval Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway have come to end, we are proud to say our Bandolero team has finished first in points. We are grateful to all that supported JMR this season, especially our man in the pits, Chris Falcone. We also want to thank our Primary Partner, SignWorks New England. This was our final season running the Bandolero Car, we look forward to running our Legend Car full-time next year. Competing in the Bandolero taught our team so much and we will miss the good times we had running in that division!
Although our time on the track has ended for 2016, JMR continues to be active in the off-season raising awareness and resources for military families through our partnership with Operation Homefront. Stay tuned to our facebook page and this site for what’s ahead in the coming months for Jake Matheson Racing. Thanks for checking in with us!!

Winner of ProWraps Bandolero Series June 4
Hard work continues to pay off for our team and we are enjoying the tough competition at the track. During practice on May 21st, we broke a spindle sending us hard into the wall. With the quick work of our pit crew, we were able to get back on the track for a 2nd place finish.
We followed up with our second win on June 4 – a great race with good friends. Can’t say how much I love racing!!
A very successful season opener for Jake Matheson Racing this weekend! It was a hard fought battle through many cautions, but we were able to hold on to the lead for the win. It was great to see all of our fellow racers again, some of them came all the way from Canada!
