Brief History
Jacob, much like his father, was able to start his racing career in the Street Stock division after competing in the Go Kart ranks from the age of 6 or 7. Once into the full bodied cars, Jacob won a couple races during that year and a half that he ran the Street Stock class before moving up into the X-Mods, which is a class that is similar to B-Mods or Midwest Modifieds or Sport Mods in other areas of the country, basically a Modified chassis with a limited engine package. Jacob’s X-Mod career was short lived as he only ran his dad’s old D & M Chassis for less than a year because of mechanical problems most of the season but then the opportunity came for Jacob to put one of his dad’s ‘big Mod’ motors in his X-Mod for the Fall Nationals, one of the $10,000 events that the Southern New Mexico Speedway host’s annually, and once Jacob got a feel of the power of the Modified division, he was set and knew that the Modified division is where he wanted to be.
