Jordon "The Jet" Mallett started off 2011 with some great news, he has been selected to drive for GF1 Chassis, which are produced by Ti22 Performance. This is no small achievement as 234 entries for over 27 states and four countries entered the competition, and only 28 final teams were picked, Mallet Motorsports being one.
One of his other goals is to win an ASCS Regional Series Tour event this season.

I believe this chassis switch will be a key component to another great and successful year for the number 14 Mallett Motorsports team," remarked Jordon.

"The switch was very important to me, I am very thankful for the opportunity to become part of the Ti22 Team USA - they are designing and producing excellent cars and components. I like it very much so far, and I think the new cars are going to work very well for me for several reasons, but the main reason is the car's new design is going to help it adapt to the changing track conditions better than any other cars on the market. The new GF1 chassis seem to be more naturally 'tight' which is the way I have always preferred a car to be, and I believe that it will further improve my performance on the track."
Jordon says one of his goals for 2011 is to win his first ever feature events.

Jordon is 18-years-old and lives in Greenbrier, Arkansas, where he's a senior at Greenbrier High School and a member of Friendship Baptist Church. "My life is made up mostly of school, church, working and racing," says Jordon.

He has been around racing as far as memory serves him, and actually started his own racing career at the age of six, that's when his dad put him into a racing go-cart.

"My dad is just a hero to me for all that he has done, I admire him for his racing skills and unbelievable talent behind the wheel and also just every aspect that he was ever involved in with racing," says Jordon glowingly.

"My dad had a unique characteristic in racing that allowed him to adapt instantaneously, not only to changing track conditions, but on a larger scale he was able to adapt to any kind of vehicle that you wanted to put him into. He was able to be competitive in anything that he was put in, and he could adapt to it within moments after learning the controls inside the vehicle."

Last year was Jordon's rookie season behind the wheel of a full-size sprint car and things went exceedingly well, as the he was extremely competitive, earning fourth place in the points championship at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas.

"Not only that, but I was also able to tag onto some ASCS (American Sprint Car Series) and USCS (United Sprint Car Series) National Touring Series races," adds Jordon. And I made it into the feature event for many of those prestigious shows. This season I have several goals, and very high hopes on where this season will take us. I plan to capture my first feature event win very early in the season, and then concentrate on winning an ASCS Regional Series Tour this year."

The K&N sponsored driver says his racing has been unfolding more and more with each race he enters and he will follow it wherever it leads.

"I just cannot thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ enough for how he has blessed me so greatly in my racing career, without him I would be nowhere compared to where I am today. I would love to see my race career continue to grow at the same rapid rate as it has been over the past couple of years. My ultimate goal is to race fulltime professionally."
