Zach White, Steve Nelson, Dale McDowell and Larry Shaw. Lance
Landers and Jared Landers are the car owners.
Jared started racing when he was 12
years old in Go Karts in Memphis TN and Modifieds in 2000 because his
Dad used to help on Sprint Cars and sponsored them. Tim Crawley
got Jared started in Go Karts. His first win was in 2001 in the
Modified Class at I-30 Speedway. Career highlights include Quick
Time on Topless 100 at Batesville Speedway, Quick Time at East Bay
Raceway Park and winning the Big One in Go Karts.
The thrill of racing for Jared is
knowing that he can do it running good! It's fun to be on the road
with these guys. His most exciting racing moment was setting in a
good spot in $100,000 race at Batesville. He had a chance to win
it! He's most proud of being able to associate with people like
Dave McDowell, Mark Martin and Larry Shaw. They help Jared and
want him to do well.
Jared's racing heroes are Larry Shaw,
who has helped Jared the most with intro's and his Dad who makes it all
happen for him.
Of racing, Jared says, "It is not as
easy as it looks! It's a lot of work!".
