Lee Jacobs Set to Contend for the FAST Kistler Cup
(MAUMEE, OH) 4-16-09 by Bryan Autullo - FAST Series Public Relations
Another heavy-weight contender has stepped into the ring to compete for the Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (FAST) in 2009. Lee Jacobs, son of sprint car racing legend Kenny Jacobs, will pilot the Genzman Racing #25 at the 22 scheduled FAST events this season. Lee cut his teeth at these two tracks and has become a force to be reckoned with over the years. The Holmesville, OH native grew up watching his father put up National Sprint Car Hall of Fame stats around Ohio and on the All Star tour over the years and has since been carving out his own successful career. Since 2000, Lee has racked up 7 feature wins, more than 60 Top 5’s and nearly 130 Top 10’s with the majority of those coming at Fremont and Attica. Methanol is in his blood and he will be gunning for the inaugural Kistler Racing Products FAST Kistler Cup.
“I’m excited to be able to run this deal at Fremont and Attica,” said Jacobs. “We’re going to run the FAST schedule with the help of De and Andy Genzman and we’ll have Andy Potter with us turning the wrenches.” Potter has become one of the top mechanics in this area and with Jacobs at the wheel, the combo will be tough to beat week in and week out. “I also want to thank Level Performance, Pro Shocks, Jeanie Butler at Butlerbuilt, Classic Turning, and Goodyear for helping me pull this all together.”
The Fremont/Attica Sprint Title schedule kicks off April 24th & 25th with a deep pool of local talent that is sure to bring some close competition throughout the season. Other drivers expected to run the full FAST schedule at both tracks include Mark Keegan, Byron Reed, Chris Andrews, Craig Mintz, Mike Linder, David Harrison, Brian Smith, Cap Henry, Duane Zablocki, Bruce Robenalt, Travis Philo, Caleb Griffith, Brian Sebetto, Brandon Martin, Brock Mayes, Rob Chaney, Jody Keegan, Cole Duncan, Aaron Middaugh, Jamie Miller, Kevin Lee, Scott Euler, and Craig Keel.
