Meet Jacob Perry
I am a 16 year old 3rd generation racer from Stonington Ct. I began racing at 4 years old in 1/4 midgets, moved onto Bandoleros at age 9 and for 2016 moved onto the Whelen All American Series in a Mini Stock and also a Pro 4 Modified where we ended up winning a total of 4 races and breaking the track record as a rookie. In 2017 I returned to the mini stocks at Waterford and added Thompson Motorsports park to my racing schedule. We won 2 races in the mini stock and finished 3rd in points at both tracks while collecting the UNOH youth achievement award for the second year in a row. I also competed in the Pro4 Modified division for 2017 where we won 6 races at 3 tracks and the 2017 championship. We build and maintain our own cars and engines as we are not a heavily funded race team. Due to this I work hard to make sure my car is the best it can be and that I race with respect to ensure we have a car to keep racing with. I have won many races and several championships racing around New England but to me that is the past and I am looking to the future and making it to the top levels of NASCAR. I am proud of my racing and am even more proud of the good my race team has done working with charities such as Race for the Cure and the Ct chapter of the Make a Wish Foundation. For 2018 I am proud to say I am a member of Team APE and will be proudly displaying the APE logo on my cars as we race around new England..
For the 2018 season I am stepping up the challenge. With the support of Ashaway Performance Engines I will be driving a Norm Perry owned and maintained modifed on the Valenti Modified racing Series. This is a huge opportunity for me and I am very appreciative of the chance to showcase my talents with the support and trust of the APE team. We will be fielding two North East Racecars Troyer Chassis's. One will be my former Sk and that car will be used at tracks like Monadncok, Lee, Beach Ridge, Speedway 51 and others. The other chassis will be our speedway car and is the former #96 that my father drove in 2015. This car will be run at Thompson, Stafford and Loudon NH. The cars will both continue the charity funding Cancer Warrior paint scheme I debuted in 2017. Stay tuned to all of our Jacob Perry Racing channels for updates and when we open the listings for tribute names on the Cancer Warrior Panels.
