March 20, 2021 - Jake rallies to finish 11th in Vado Speedway Park reopening
1Both Fito and Jake were in action on Saturday night as their hometown track - the Vado Speedway Park, in Vado, New Mexico reopened for the first time in 14 months due to the COVID-19 statewide shutdown in New Mexico.

Both drivers were behind the wheel of USRA B-Mods for the track's opening night. 

Fito, in a Pete Vargas-owned #777 started sixth in the opening heat race of the night and quickly raced to the lead and won it, earning the pole for the feature event, but unfortunately mechanical issues just before the main kept him from starting the feature.

Jake, driving a Candy Hansen-owned #18g also started 6th in his heat and raced his way up to finish 2nd, putting himself sixth in the feature lineup. He drove to the front quickly at the drop of the green and raced out front for the majority of the event until contact with a lapped car cut a tire and he was forced into the hot pit area. He restarted at the tail and was able to race up to finish 11th.
