Youngest Driver to Win USAC HPD Western Overall Rookie of the Year 2015 & Overall Champion 2016
MENLO PARK, CA, June 22, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Race Face Brand Development’s Founder and CEO, Rod Wortham, announced today that 12-year old Jesse Love has joined the Race Face Brand Development Driver Program. “Jesse has already amassed an outstanding racing resume at such an early age, and we are excited to be an integral part of his future,” states Wortham.
Jesse Love IV, of Menlo Park California, started racing quarter-midgets at the age of five and he hasn’t looked back since. The fast-running youngster has racked up numerous local track, regional, state, and national championships. He is commonly known around the area tracks as, “The Hammer”.
Coming off a very successful racing schedule in 2016, not only did Jesse race to championships in both the Dirt and Overall USAC HPD Midget Western States Series, but he was the youngest winning driver to do so. The 2017 season has started off with another championship in sight with two 1st place finishes, a top five and a top ten, in just the first four dirt races. Jesse has also racked up three 2nd place finishes and one victory in the asphalt series to lead the Western USAC HPD Midget Western Overall Championship.
So, what does a 12-year old do when he is not racing USAC HPD Midgets; can you say Late Models? In just his first year in a full-body race car, Jesse is competing in the 51 Fifty Energy Drink Jr Late Model Series from Madera Speedway in Madera CA. “For most drivers changing from a USAC Midget to a full-body race car would take some time, but not for Jesse Love,” states Lorin Ranier, NASCAR Driver Development Consultant. In the first four races, he accumulated three wins in a row and one third place finish, and now leads in the point standings heading into the second-half of the season.
Jesse has already amassed an outstanding racing resume at such an early age, and we are excited to be an integral part of his future,
