March 1, 2020 – After battling with the top five all day, Jett Noland comes home ninth in his Trans Am TA-2 debut at Sebring International Raceway.
This marks an excellent outing by the 16-year-old driver out of Clermont, Florida. After starting in the eighth position Noland methodically worked his way through the field throughout the race. Then on a restart with less than five to go it all went sideways as Jett was sent spinning. Still, he was able to gather it up and come up with a respectable ninth place finish on the day.
“I can’t thank my Mike Cope Racing crew enough for all the effort they put into this endeavor,” said Noland. “I’m not used to making all these left and right turns, but they did an excellent job coaching me through it and getting me up to speed so quickly. I feel like we had a top-five run brewing before the caution came out. But that’s racing. I can’t wait to come out here and do it again.”
While Noland already has a decent schedule ahead of him, he’s really looking forward to continuing with the Trans Am TA-2 Series.
“These cars are so much fun to drive,” said Noland. “They really remind me of the Super Late Models I’m used to racing throughout the Southeast. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The competition is great, the racers are from all walks of life, and the paddock is full of skilled veterans. I think we’ll have to commit to running a few more of these before the year is out.”
