Jason started racing at Saratoga Speedway in 1986 in the “Road Runner” class. He won his first championship in 1990 and followed it up with another in 1991.
In 1993 he started driving in the “CAN AM” series where he had many top five finishes as well as winning the “Brian McLean 150” at Saratoga and being awarded “Sportsman of the Year” in 1994.
Jason purchased his first “IMCA” modified in 1995, a class he competed in until 2005, running at many tracks throughout Western Canada as well as at the “Bull Ring” in Las Vegas, Nevada where he finished as the top placing Canadian in 4th position. His many Championship wins during this time period included 3 back-to-back IMCA National ones from 2000 to 2002, a feat made more noteworthy by the fact that he only ran in 13 races with the National Championships being determined by a driver’s best finishes in 12 race meets.
In 2005 Jason purchased a “WILROC” sprint car and added more awards to his ever-growing list including the “Ross Surgenor Saratoga Speedway Championship”, the “Malahat Auto Parts Western Championship” and the “WILROC Championship” plus the “Daffodil Cup” and “Roy Haslam Most Main Event Wins” trophies.
He then tried his hand at racing on the dirt in the “NNP Late Model Series” out of Alberta, winning many main events along with the championship in 2007.
In 2008 he entered the “KATANA” late models and won their season championship along with Western Speedway’s “Canada 200”.
Following 2008, Jason concentrated on dirt track modified racing in larger events in the U.S. which included the 2010 “Shipwreck Beads National” in Elma, Washington which he won; the 2015 “IMCA Super Nationals” in Boone, Wisconsin where he finished 19th in a 30 car field which had been narrowed down from over 400 potential qualifiers; the 2016 to 2019 “UMP” dirt car championship “Gator Nationals” in Volusia, Florida and the 2016 “Duel in the Desert” in Las Vegas in which after making it up to 6th place and damaging a tie rod, he finished 13th in the 28 car field.
In 2016 and 2017, he took in the “North Dakota Classic” tour which was 6 tracks in 7 nights through North Dakota and Saskatchewan, qualifying for just one of the six 2016 shows but making 5 of the 2017 events, the 6th one being rained out.
Jason continues to race in the U.S. with his “UMP” and “IMCA” dirt cars at many prestigious tracks including Eldora, the DuQuoin Mile, Las Vegas and Volusia. He has competed in 3 Canadian provinces and approximately 20 U.S. states winning well over 150 main events. He continues to promote racing and “pays it forward” by sponsoring many cars in Canada and the United States including the new “IMOD” series.
