Road America held more ups and downs than turns at the 61st Annual June Sprints in Kohler WI. “We had a very chaotic weekend. We had a big crash Friday morning and I have to thank everyone at Texas Autosports because without them we definitely wouldn’t have been able to get back on track. Saturday we still had some car troubles but I was able to hold onto second. Sundays race was very crazy!!! I was able to make the pass at the line and won by half a car. Definitely a weekend to remember!”
“I had an awesome time speaking at the 2016 Teens In The Driver Seat Summit hosted by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine Texas. The multi-day event provided education to teens from across Texas. There were so many activities to be involved with. I am so glad to have been able to play a small part in the event. I also got some TV time with CW33 so I was able to spread the message even more.”
Pointing out the seatbelt- Jarret Voorhies MISD PTA Touch-A-Truck
“I had such a good time at the 2016 Mansfield ISD PTA Touch-A-Truck. There were a lot of young kids who were super excited to see a racecar. I got a chance to show them around the car and pointed out my seatbelt to as many as I could. I wanted them to know if it was cool for racecar drivers to wear a seatbelt, it was cool for them to wear it too! Checkout my LivIt Video @jarret_voorhies!!”
Partnering with The Humanity Project, Jarret spoke to 650 teens in Sanford Florida about safe and responsible driving. “Vehicle crashes are the Number 1 killer of teenagers our age” said Jarret. The event hosted at Crooms Academy was coordinated by SADD and The Humanity Project.
With two wins and a new track record, Jarret Voorhies got the Atlanta Sweep at Road Atlanta!!
“I destroyed my transmission during Friday qualifying! When we pulled it Friday night there were teeth everywhere. I owe so many thanks to Moses Smith, Texas Autosports and fellow competitor Paul for helping me get it put back together. With the blown transmission, I missed the second round of qualifying. That put me a little deeper in the field for the start than I wanted, but the track was so fast I got up towards the front and held it. Sunday’s race had a few more caution laps than I wanted but, with the warm sun and cold air, the car was begging to set a new record!! I’m so glad to have it ALL captured with my360FLY!!!!”
I’m so excited about my new driving tips for teens video series. Driving on the road is not easy, and for teenagers such as myself, it’s a leading cause of death. Using my experience on the track, I’m putting together a collection of driving tips to increase the fun, and avoid the risks!!
