Jake Andreotti is a Micro Sprint Car driver based in the Northern California area. Jake began racing at just five years old with training beginning six months earlier. During a period of over six years racing Quarter Midget cars, Andreotti built up quite a race resume. He was able to accumulate five national titles, 20 club titles, regional titles and other series championships. Andreotti has broken track records across the United States and can even boast that he has raced internationally in Canada.

At the end of the 2013 Quarter Midget season Jake, and his father Jared, decided it was time to take Andreotti Racing to the next level. Jake took the skills he learned racing Quarter Midgets with him when he began racing Micro Sprint Cars for the 2014 season. Despite having to learn to drive an all-new car, Jake Andreotti has six wins to his name this season. His first main event win came in May at the Delta Speedway in Stockton, California. “It was a very memorable moment filled with high-fives, thumbs up, clapping, and such memorable bids of congratulations” said Jake’s mother Jenni Andreotti.

Jake once again drove his number 7P K&N Filters Micro Sprint Car to victory circle at Plaza Park Raceway in Visalia, California. This was the second race towards the King Of California championship title. Jake’s father Jared Andreotti said of Plaza Park Raceway “Tricky track with some hard racing with very tough competition.” Jake didn’t have much time to celebrate his victory in Visalia, California as the Andreotti Racing family was on track again the next night in Leemore, California.

Unfortunately the race at Lemoore Raceway didn’t go as smoothly as the Andreotti team would have liked. “Salvaged a pretty good night considering nothing went our way. Started 13th in main, spun went to the back restarted 23rd and finished 7th. Very proud how Jake drove and stayed very strong” said Jake’s father Jared. With his finish at Lemoore Raceway, Jake Andreotti is only two points out of first place in the King Of California chase.

K&N believes in supporting up and coming racers at the grassroots level. K&N is proud to sponsor Andreotti racing and the number 7P K&N Filters Micro Sprint Car. Be sure to keep an eye on this young man as he has been described as “the next Kyle Larson” by those who have seen him race. Kyle Larson, who also got his start in the Northern California racing scene, was the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion and is now a rookie of the year contender in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
