1September 9th, 2012 - It was an ultra-busy weekend for Hughes Motorsports over the weekend as the team took in a mixed bag of events in Minnesota.

The weekend opened on Friday evening at Ogilvie Raceway (Ogilvie, Minnesota) with not only a Casey's National Championship Series event, but also a make-up feature from the August 15th event, which was postponed by rain. The $3,000-to-win feature saw Jason start seventh on the grid before advancing to a sixth place finish at the checkered flag.

The $4,000-to-win program on Friday night drew a field of thirty-one entries, and in heat race action Jason charged from his third starting spot to claim the win, which sent him to the redraw for the feature. The redraw would not be kind as he would receive the sixth starting spot for the 40 lap finale. In the main event he staged a late race charge to the front of the pack, but would be unable to overtake Ryan Gustin for the top spot and had to settle for a second place finish.

On Saturday night the team was once again in action at Ogilvie Raceway (Ogilvie, Minnesota) as the entry list increased to thirty-seven racers for the final event of the 2012 Casey's USMTS National Championship Series. In a touch of deja vu Jason would start his night by winning his heat race only to once again receive the sixth starting spot for the 40 lap finale. He advanced a pair of spots in the $4,000-to-win race to a fourth place finish behind race winner, Jeremy Payne, Kelly Shryock, and Dereck Ramirez.

The weekend's action drew to a close on Sunday evening at Granite City Speedway (Sauk Rapids, Minnesota) with a $3,000-to-win, Hunt for the Casey's USMTS Cup event. Twenty-three racers passed through the pit gate, and a second place finish in heat race action earned Hughes the third starting spot for the 40 lap finale. He would race in the top five for the duration of the event before crossing the finish line in third behind race winner, Stormy Scott, and Ryan Gustin.

Jason ended the Casey's USMTS National Championship Series in second behind champion, Ryan Gustin. He is currently second in the Hunt for the Casey's USMTS standings behind Gustin. Hughes Race Cars continues to lead the Tiger Rear Ends Manufacturers standings by a solid margin. Full results from the weekend as well as the latest series' standings are available at www.USMTS.com.

Thirty-eight competitors registered for action, and after advancing to a second place finish in his heat race Jason earned a spot in the redraw for the feature. He would receive the fourth starting spot for the finale and would go on to race his way to a second place finish behind race winner, Jon Tesch.

1September 1st, 2012 - Friday and Saturday night took Hughes Motorsports to Minnesota for a pair of Hunt for the USMTS Casey's Cup races.

On Friday evening a $3,000-to-win race was contested at Chateau Raceway (Lansing, Minnesota) as a field of thirty-four Open Wheel Modifieds registered for battle. A third place finish in his heat race secured Hughes with the eleventh starting spot for the 30 lap finale. During the course of the main event he advanced two spots on his way to a ninth place finish.

Saturday night found the team pitted at Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) as he went into war against a talent-laden field of fifty-seven competitors. A sixth to second run in his heat race sent Hughes to the redraw for the main event, where he received the sixth starting spot.
