We look forward to having members of the Vista Junior Eagles football team in attendance for Student Night this Saturday! Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stock driver Jesse “The Savage” Bryant is a member of the football team and is excited to have his teammates on hand to cheer him on during the night.
“I’m really enjoying my first season of football as a Vista Junior Eagle. The team has been very welcoming, supportive and them wanting to come out and watch me race, knowing we have a jamboree that day that ends around 4pm is very cool. I appreciate the team as well as the parents for bringing them up to have a great time at the track. Last weekend we had a scrimmage and I got to the speedway just in time to jump in the car. It’s crazy to think that I’m just 13 and playing football along with driving a race car.”
Bryant is currently fourth in the Jay’s Mobile Welding & Fabricating Pure Stock standings and is the front runner for Rookie of the Year honors, which he looks to wrap up with two races remaining. The 13-year-old will also be part of the pre-race autograph session from 4pm-5pm on Saturday.
“I’m very blessed to have my dad Jay and mom Emilie making sure they get me everywhere I need to be and doing everything they can to give me such blessed life. I love having my racing family and my Vista Family. My dad has taught me you finish what you start and there is no quitting, so juggling both sports has been a little difficult but I’m a better person because of it. The conditioning of football has helped me improve in my race car as well. For my team to be at the track and be a part of me winning Rookie of the Year is awesome. To my knowledge I’d be the youngest driver to accomplish that so it will be pretty special.”
