The Umbenhauer Racing camp has been hectic preparing for the coming race season. Jordan Umbenhauer from Reading, Pennsylvania has been busy building a car for his youngest son, 17-year-old Jared, to race in the Sportsman Class at Big Diamond Raceway in Pennsylvania. He's also working on his oldest son's car, 21-year-old Jordan Jr., plus Rick Clay's Big Block, which will be driven by Billy Pauch Jr., and in his spare time, which is at a premium these days, Jordan works on his own car.

"Overall I think our '09 season went well, says Umbenhauer. "I had a few top fives. My son Jared finished second in the Sportsman Coal Cracker 50, while Jordan (Jr.) finished sixth."

"Jared also won his first Sportsman Race last year. Jordan did well in his rookie season up at Big Diamond Raceway; finishing 11th in points for the season, and he came away with some top ten finishes too. He also placed tenth in the BPG Freedom 76 (referred to as "The Granddaddy" of major short track dirt modified racing events) in his first time racing at Grandview Speedway (Bechtelville, Pennsylvania). Overall a good season for the family."

"Our relationship with K&N is amazing. We love the way the air and oil filters are working for our cars and love the support that K&N has given us over the season."

"Our plans for the upcoming 2010 season are for Jordan to race fulltime at Grandview Speedway in the 358 Modified Division. Jared will compete weekly up at Big Diamond Raceway, in the Sportsman Class, in a new family car. I will run select shows throughout the season, giving more time for my sons to compete and advance in the racing world," concludes Umbenhauer.
