Jason Moss is carrying on a family tradition, tearing up the track at Stittsville’s Capital City Speedway.
Only in his second year behind the wheel, he secured the 2012 Four 4-Fun championship with 12 heat wins and six feature wins, good for a season’s total of 1,098 points.
It is a special win, not just for him, but for the area, as it is the first time in a long time someone brought back this racing title to Pembroke.
“It’s been a long time since the title came home,” Moss said, noting he was pleasantly surprised to see so many fans from Pembroke cheering in the stands.
Racing is a family tradition for Moss; his uncles Danny and Kevin Yeas made a reputation at Capital City for years, racing at all different levels and categories.
Moss himself served on their pit crew and on the sidelines for at least 15 years or so before walking away from it for nearly a decade. But the pull of racing was just too strong.
“I just missed it too much,” he said. This time, he is the one doing the driving, with the family giving him technical and moral support.
Now that the season in over, Moss said he is working on getting ready for the 2013 season. He said he has so many to thank for his success, from his car sponsors Bee-Line Disposal and Sun Sign Graphics, to his grandparents John and Donna Yeas, his pit crew chief Kevin Yeas, racing team members and supporters Timmy Moss, Ashley Moss, Colton Wegner and Mitchell King.
He also said he thanks all of the local fans who make the trek out to Stittsville on racing days to offer their support to him and the other drivers.
