13 year old Jacob Balliet is a 7th grade Honor Student from Northeast Pennsylvania who is an aspiring Sprint Car Driver. A small but determined farm kid who grew up around the local asphalt tracks, he started racing on the dirt in a 1/4 midget at the age of 5. By 11 years old, he amassed 127 Feature Wins in 431 Starts at USAC and Outlaw tracks across 9 different states as far south as North Carolina and as far west as Illinois.
At 12 Years old the giant step was made to a 600 Wingless Micro Sprint. With the expectation of his 1st year being a learning year, Jacob shocked many when his first Feature win can just 7 weeks into the season. He finished the year 3rd in the Point Standings with 2 Feature Wins, 3 Heat Race Wins, 6 top 5's, and 11 top 10's in just 16 starts.
