Fantastic weekend at Hallett! Two second place finishes! We almost had the win Saturday in the rain, it came down to a last lap battle for the lead. Sunday I spun out in turn one but kept it going and fought back to second! Thanks to everyone who made this possible!
Pretty crazy weekend here at Road Atlanta! Was a little off pace in the dry, I finished 5th on Saturday. On Sunday we were one of the quickest in the wet but unfortunately I crashed avoiding a stopped car. Overall it was a really fun weekend still learning a lot and it definitely was a confidence boost.
So what do you do during the off season? You get ready for the next season! Part of my prep involved a new seat. It’s a really interesting process not many get to see. It also takes a lot of time.
Jarret is really proud to announce his partnership with AT&T and their “It Can Wait” don’t text and drive campaign. “I am really proud of this and it’s something that affects almost everyone my age. When I learned distracted driving is responsible for as many deaths as drinking and driving, I was surprised. When I learned people in my age group where most likely to be involved, I wanted to do my part to spread the word.” Jarret will be working with local police departments schools and other venues to help spread the message, #X, because, it can wait.
Jarret had a fantastic first race in the Formula Mazda! “We wanted to approach this weekend as a test, a benchmark to see where I measured up going into next season. With a third place qualifying effort on Saturday and a solid race on Sunday, I’m pretty happy. I still have a lot of work to do, but I expected that.”
Jarret had a fantastic day for only his second race in the senior division. “Driving in this class is a big challenge, the drivers are more experienced and don’t make many mistakes. This is probably my last national level karting race for the 2014 season, I’m really proud to go out on a high note. During one heat race, I was the second fastest on the track, behind the leader by only 0.10 of a second. Thank you to my family, my team and my fans for such a great experience” – Jarret
