This week we are going to feature Jason Yager as our driver of the
week. Yager has been racing since he was eight years old. He started
out in motorcycles and is now racing Modified at 81 Speedway.
Yager has been in some type of racing for 29 years with maybe a couple of breaks in this time span.
In
1999 Yager started out racing in the Street Stock Division. In 2001
Yager won the Street Stock Championship. Has been Rookie of the Year of
Super Stock and runner up in 2002 in the Sportsman Division.
Yager enjoys the competition of racing.
“I
would always go and watch on the off weekends when I was not racing
motorcycles and thought the modified were the top dog, so I knew that
is something I wanted to race. I also believe it is a more challenging
class,” said Yager.
Yager is leading the Rookie of the Year points and has just moved up to the top ten in points.
The
week of July 29th Yager got his first top ten finish and thought that
was pretty great. This last week Yager got his finish in the top five
and said that was even better. Yager ran his first Davis Moore top ten
dash and finished fourth in it.
Yager is married to his wife Amanda and has two daughters Olivia and Madison.
Yager
would like to say thank you to all his sponsors like Special T’s,
Hughes, Trailer Town, The Smoke Shop, TNT Automotive and Watkins Auto
Salvage.
Good luck, Yager, in the rest of the season.
