This is Jason Alder

Six-Time National Champion

My dad brought home a yard kart he found in a local yard sale. I wanted nothing to do with it. But over time, it grew on me. I said, ‘Dad, I want to race, like against other people.’ He thought that sounded awesome. I was 6 at the time, and little did I know that as soon I hit the track for the first time, I would be hooked for life.

Jason Alder

Driver, No. 77

Jason’s racing career began at the local go-karting level, jumping in at age 6 and posting a second-place finish at his local race track, Sandy Hook Speedway in Street, Maryland. The following season, he competed in 24 races, tallying 14 feature wins, including two divisional feature victories.

At 8 years old, Jason joined the World Karting Association — the largest sanctioning body for kart racing in the country — and competed in the Gold Cup Series. After 30 races that season and finishing sixth nationally in points, the Alders decided to establish AB Motorsports, acknowledging that in just three years Jason had shown great promise.

With an official race team behind him, Jason took off in 2012, winning seven features and six poles in his 49-race season. He finished second nationally, regionally, and locally in points standings and earned the Most Improved Junior Driver at Sandy Hook Speedway.

During the next three seasons, Jason and AB Motorsports kicked into full swing, making 170 starts and winning 63 features, including 21 at the Gold Cup level and 14 divisionally. In his final go-karts season, Jason was ranked No. 1 nationally in the Junior Pro Gas Lite class and No. 2 in three classes at the state level. He was the 2014 WKA RLV Gold Cup Series Sportsman Animal Alcohol National Champion and the 2015 Gold Cup Series Junior ProGas Lite National Champion. After racing — and succeeding — against competitors a class older than he was, it was time to make the jump to Bandoleros.

In his first full-time season in a Bandolero, Jason made 24 starts, winning eight poles and five features, including one at the INEX Winter Heat Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He also won four times that summer at Shenandoah (Va.) Speedway and claimed the track’s Bandolero championship. He also tested his mettle in the INEX Bojangles Summer Shootout as a rookie, posting top-five finishes in three of four races against some of the nation’s best.

2017 saw another jump — this time to a Legend race car — for a full season of INEX-sanctioned events across Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland, where he finished second in the state championship.

In 2018, he scored his first feature win in a Legend car in The Gobbler event at Concord (N.C.) Speedway after qualifying on the pole. He snagged three more pole awards last season: at the Bojangles Summer Shootout and the INEX Winter Heat Series. He finished the 2018 campaign ranked No. 1 in the INEX Maryland standings.

Jason continues to steadily make his way through the ranks as he pursues his dream of racing in the NASCAR Cup Series. Already in 2019, he has won the INEX Winter Nationals Semi-Pro, Texas Spring Battle Semi-Pro, and Summer Legends Shootout Semi-Pro national championships as he continues to hone his craft across North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, and Maryland.

After an impressive 2019 season that saw Jason capture 22 wins and record another 40 top-fives in 49 starts, Jason secured the INEX Semi Pro Championship, bringing his career total to six national championships.
