JMR in 2017

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.

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!!
