The inaugural season for the Lucas Oil Modified Series was 2006 and in that first year Corona, California's, Jason Patison notched five wins on his way to wearing the series’ first championship crown. He moved on to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series for a couple seasons after that, and then he took time off to focus on his family and his career working as programming director for MAV-TV. Last season Patison returned to the series he helped put on the racing atlas, and after only a few rounds acclimating his racing legs, he found his way back to the front, dominating the featured 75-lap Lucas Oil Modified LoanMart Hot August 75 event at Irwindale Speedway. This season Patison displays even loftier ambitions, he’s armored-up, and clearly appears to be eyeing a second championship run.

“We have had two races in the Lucas Oil Modified Series, and each race has had at least 40 cars, which makes it the strongest touring series on the west coast,” Patison said. “I'm really encouraged after the first few races of the year. Our car has been fast at every event, we just have had some ‘new car blues’ that we have to work through. We had an oil leak in one event and a shock issue in another.”

The Patison Racing crew qualified 3rd and finished 9th out of the 43 car field in the season opener at Havasu 95 Speedway. Then at the next race at Tucson Speedway Patison and the K&N supported No. 80 qualified 5th and finished 9th. “But we have at least hung on to a top 10 finish at both events,” Patison adds.

Most recently Patison Racing took their Super Late Model out to Irwindale Speedway and it ran extremely fast, but unfortunately the team’s unreasonable run of bad luck followed them there.

“We qualified 1st and led the first five, laps of the main event and then had the engine stop running on lap 6,” said Patison. “We think it was a fuel delivery issue, possibly the fuel pump. Mechanical failures are part of racing, but we have definitely had more than our fair share so far, but I have a great team and I know we will rebound and get the finishes we deserve.”

“Next we head to Las Vegas for round 4 of the Lucas Oil Modified Series, the 75-lap main event is on May 17th. We have a brand new motor we are bringing out for that event, equipped with K&N Filters – it’s going to be fast!”
