About Jason

Jason Martin and his wife, Amber, have two sons, Chase and Reece. Jason's interest in dirt track racing started at a young age when his father would sneak him into the pit area of local racetracks where he would ride along in the push vehicles! Since his entrance to the sport in 1995, Jason concentrated on winning championships! He was the winner of three track championships, as well as three runner-up track championships, in the first 4 years of competition in multiple classes.

Jason has proven to be a winning racer with the will to learn and the desire to thrive! His ability to understand set-ups, maintain his own equipment, to design and fabricate any product necessary has led to many accomplishments. He has accumulated over 100 feature wins in 34 different states, and Canada.

Jason is very proud to have won The Steve King Memorial race at Dodge City Raceway Park in 2009, as well as in 2011 at The Jetmore Motorplex. Jason is one of a few racers who can say they have made the A-Mains at both the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in Tulsa, OK, and the Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, IA, in the same year as a rookie in these events.

In the beginning, Jason dreamed of one day owning and operating his own professional sprint car team. In 2006, his dream came true! Jason and the Martin Motorsports team competed at the highest level of sprint car racing in the World of Outlaws. In the spring of 2012, an opportunity of a lifetime presented Jason with a management position in the industry that he loves. Eagle Motorsports, a sprint car chassis manufacturer in Lincoln, Nebraska, was interested in Jason's talents and valuable assets. That August, Jason and Amber moved their two sons to their new home in Nebraska. While working at Eagle Motorsports in the fall of 2013, another major opportunity materialized in the form of creating a fresh race team with local businessman and avid race fan Brad Ball. Jason and Brad quickly formed a great relationship, as well as a winning race team, finding a victory their third time out. Victory lane was no strange place for Jason and his beautiful race car in 2014, claiming 11 wins throughout the season.
2017 was a year of improvement, Darrell Bybee, owner of Bybee Electric in Wichita, Kansas was a long time competitor against Jason and he decided he want to join forces with Jason Martin Motorsports to create BM Motorsports and help create more of an opportunity for the team to sustain the expense of the sport, as well as be able to expand their ability to succeed at a higher level. Jason and Darrell have become great friends and continue to work together on progressing their team together.
With success a common thing with Jason and his race teams, the locally famous 82 car based out of the Lincoln area was needing a driver to race some of the local events and Jason jumped on the opportunity to race with this great group of guys who just love to have fun racing. Kirk Coseart, Brent Morris, and Terry Kopecky took him in, and they've had success winning both I-80 Speedway track championships as well as the Nebraska 360 Sprint Series Championships.
Jason continues to associate himself with all of these great sponsors and car owners, all while dividing his time between the different rides, one common goal with all of them is to win races.

Along with winning races, the primary objective of Jason Martin Motorsports is to enjoy racing while working together as a team to be the very best there is in all aspects. Racing is all that they have known for well over 20 years, and they continue to do it for the sake of fun, family, and tradition.
