Jacob Perry of Stonington, CT., will be starting a new adventure this race season, as he gets behind the wheel in the #76 Valenti Modified car this season. Like most race car drivers Jacob has been getting ready for the 2018 race season, “Working on the racecars, using Iracing to practice and snowboarding.”

 

Jacob will be racing the full V-Modified schedule, a total of 15 races at 8 different tracks including 1 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The first race of the season is on April 7th at Thompson Motorsports Park. “The track I’m looking most forward to on the schedule is probably NHMS. I can’t wait to be up on the big track after running the Bandolero track there. I’m also excited for Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.”
