Jacob O'Connor

Lafayette , IN

My name is Jacob O'Connor. I have raced ump Street stocks on dirt tracks in Kokomo Indiana, Boswell Indiana, Crown Point ,Kankakee Illinois. Unfortunately I have never won a race, I have spent my life savings and some of my parents on our race car with no sponsorship help it was time to get out of it. Not until recently we had found out my mom has mesothelioma. Unfortunately it isn't curable. We have talked and we've decided to follow our dreams my wife and I went to North Carolina and purchased a Gen 5 NASCAR and hopes to run in ARCA series, it still needs a lot of work. We have decided to run in the CRA series because of cost and of course you need seat time on asphalt. With sponsorship it would make our dreams come true and give my mom the opportunity to see me fulfill my dreams.
