September 28, 2020 – It was a tough weekend for Jett Noland the Mike Cope Racing No.66 crew at Virginia International Raceway. After showing signs of speed Friday afternoon in Practice, electrical gremlins plagued the team during both feature races.
“It was a tough weekend for sure, said Noland. Saturday we started 10th, moved up to 9th and then the engine started cutting out under caution. Then we had to bring the Noland’s Roofing ride back down pit road and had to get it fixed up. I was thrilled that we drove back up to tenth after that.
Once the race was over, the Mike Cope Racing guys obviously went back over the car to make sure the issue was fixed, but unfortunately come Sunday we battled issues the whole race. You’ll have that sometimes, but I know my guys back at the shop are going to go over this thing with a fine tooth comb before Circuit of the Americas. We’ll get them then.”
Though the next Trans Am event isn’t until November, Noland will be keeping the driver’s seat warm. October 10th he’ll be competing in the Winchester 400 with Mike Cope Racing. Then he’ll be racing in St. Petersburg with the Stadium Super Trucks the weekend of the 24th. Stay tuned to JettNoland.com for details on his schedule.

September 24, 2020 – Jett Noland will be back behind the wheel this weekend of the Mike Cope Racing No. 66 at Virginia International Raceway. Noland will have two chances at picking up his first Trans Am Series victory this weekend. The Trans Am TA-2’s will be racing Saturday Afternoon and Sunday morning.
“I feel pretty good going into this weekend’s races at Virginia International Raceway,” said Noland. We’ve made gains throughout the year with these Mike Cope Racing guys and I feel like we really have a chance to pull off our first Trans Am Series victory this weekend.”
Though he hasn’t turned a single lap of practice at VIR. Noland confesses he’s been working on the racing simulator to get up to speed.
“We’ve been putting in a lot of hours on our simulator,” Noland continued. “While it’s not an exact match to the racecourse, it gives you an idea as to where your shift points are and how hard you can attack the corners. We only get a hand full of practice sessions this weekend so we want to make sure they count.”
It’s bound to be an exciting event this weekend at one of America’s most beautiful race courses. While we encourage fans to visit VIR in person. Fans can watch Jett race in the Trans Am TA-2 Series Saturday from 1:45pm – 3:00pm and Sunday starting at 11:05am on the Trans Am App.

August 7th, 2020 – Jett Noland will attempt his
first start in the Stadium Super Truck Series Saturday night at Road America in
Elk Heart Lake, Wisconsin after meeting with series owner Robby Gordon Thursday
“We showed up to Road America to race Trans-Am, and ended up
in a Stadium Super Truck which is pretty awesome,” said Noland. “It’s an honor
to be racing with Robby Gordon. I can’t wait to get into the truck Saturday.”
Saturday is looking to become a busy day for 16-year-old
Noland. The versatile driver who has competed in everything from Go Karts, to
Super Late Models, and Trans Am TA-2 cars, will race in not one, but two
Stadium Super Truck features Saturday as well as his regularly scheduled Trans
Am race with Mike Cope Racing.
“The main focus is obviously the Trans Am car,” Noland continued. “But I’ve always wanted to drive one of these trucks since I was a kid on a four wheeler in the back woods of Groveland. So I’m looking forward to having a little fun.”
“I have to thank my sponsors, Noland’s Roofing and Cypress Ridge Hunting Preserve for making this happen, as well as Mike Cope Racing for their support this weekend at Road America.”
