WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE JASON WIECK RACING
NHRA SUPERCOMP/TOP DRAGSTER DRAG RACING TEAM
Owning a race team and driving a dragster has been a long time dream of mine, going back to when I was five years old and my dad took me to my first drag race. When I saw the first pair of cars go down the track, I knew that's what I wanted to do with my life.
My uncle, Jerry Estep, had a top gas dragster which competed in the 60s and 70s. In 1970 my uncle's car won Top Gas with Jack Jones driving, who also happens to be the model for the coveted NHRA Wally trophy. On October 16, 2009 I took a big step and earned my NHRA Champoinship Drag Racing Competition Drag Racing License at Frank Hawley's NHRA Drag Racing School in Las Vegas. On my journey to getting my license, I spent eight years working as a crew member for Rocketman Racing. Being a tem member of a professional race team, I was exposed to the business side of drag racing. It also taught me an even greater level of dedication, discipline, and focus. I have been able to get really creative with marketing and social media which has been able to give us a following of over 50,000 between twitter and all of our facebook pages. Our facebook fan page averages over 40,000 hits per week and had over 300,000 in our most visited week. This make us the most followed NHRA sportsman team online.
In 2011, I drove for Jim "Bear" Chapman while competing in the Arizona Drag Racing Association (ADRA). I entered a number of races and in one of the races I made it to the finals and won runner in a field of 31 cars, earning a spot in National Dragster (a drag racing magazine by NHRA). In the 2011 season, I acquired sponsorships from Allstate Transmission & Auto Repair in Phoenix, AZ, as well as Southwest Diesel & Electrical and 1st Impressions Truck Lettering, both also located in Phoenix, AZ. For the 2012 season, I joined with Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a nationwide company famous for their steakburgers and frozen custards, for our title sponsorship. We competed in five local bracket races which include a runner up, two semi final appearances, one quarter final appearance, and unfortunately one first round exit. In 2013 Jason Wieck Racing started working in conjunction with Doug Herbert's B.R.A.K.E.S. a 501(c) (3) nonprofit charity.
I recently did an interview with Female Field Guide as well as the Jason Wieck Racing Promo Video. I would like to invite you to visit the Media page and check out the promo video. The production company that filmed the Promo Video has started filming a web series following us as we venture through the ups and downs and trials and tribulations of racing and making it happen. We will be launching the web series in 2014.
