April 27th, 2013 -Thursday night took Jason to Texas Thunder Speedway (Killeen, Texas) for the first night of a tripleheader with the USMTS Open Wheel 1Modified tour. Forty-one competitors filled the pit area, and heat race action left Hughes short of locking into the feature, and as a result he was forced to run a b-main. A third place finish in the evening's second b-main locked Jason into the eighteenth starting spot for the 40 lap, $4,000-to-win finale. During the course of the main event he advanced an impressive ten spots on his way to an eighth place finish at the checkered flag.

A forty-six car field led the first ever USMTS invasion of Kennedale Speedway Park (Kennedale, Texas) on Friday evening, and a fourth place finish in heat race action left Jason short of locking into the feature. As a result he was dependant on a third place finish in a b-main to earn the seventeenth starting spot for the 40 lap, $4,000-to-win finale. Despite starting deep in the grid Hughes was able to work his way forward to a fifth place finish behind race winner, Johnny Scott, Rodney Sanders, J.P. Dowell, and Clyde Dunn Jr.

The busy weekend concluded on Saturday night with a trip to Southern Oklahoma Speedway (Ardmore, Oklahoma) With forty-two entries on hand for the $4,000-to-win program Jason started fourteenth on the grid for the 40 lap finale, but saw his feature come to an end on lap 14 with mechanical issues. He was credited with a twenty-fifth place finish.

1April 20th, 2013 - Saturday night found Jason pursuing a $4,000 win with the USMTS tour at one of his favorite tracks in the country, Salina Highbanks Speedway (Salina, Oklahoma). A packed grandstand found Hughes going into battle against a field of thirty-one entries at the clay oval, and a sixth to second run in his heat race put Jason in the redraw, where he received the second starting spot for the 35 lap feature alongside pole sitter, Chris Theodore.

At the drop of the green flag Hughes bolted to the lead and paced the event for the first sixteen circuits before Stormy Scott slipped by for hte lead. Over the remainder of the 35 lapper Hughes would briefly slip to the third spot before recovering to a second place finish behind race winner, Scott.

April 19th, 2013 - After seeing Thursday night's scheduled USMTS event at Valley Speedway (Grain Valley, Missouri) postponed by rain the team entered a $3,000-to-win event at the state-of-the-art, 3/8 mile oval at Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas) 1on Friday evening. A strong field of thirty-nine entries registered for action atop the track, which left rough by heavy rains in the days leading up to the event. Jason won his heat from the second starting spot to lock into the redraw for the feature, where he received the pole for the feature. As the finale went green Hughes jumped to the lead and paced the first eleven laps before the rough track began to take its toll on his mount. Lap 12 found Jeremy Payne jumping to the lead, and over the remainder of the event Hughes slipped back a third place finish behind race winner, Payne, and Ryan Gustin.

1April 6th, 2013 - Jason Hughes had the rare opportunity to enter a pair of events in his home state over the weekend, and had high hopes for both races. Unfortunately a small miscue on Friday evening made for a tough weekend for the team.

On Friday night the action opened at Thunderbird Speedway (Muskogee, Oklahoma) as a field of twenty-six competitors looked to tackle the historic, 1/2 mile oval. Heat race action found Jason blasting from the third starting spot to claim the win, which locked him into the redraw for the feature. After receiving the second starting spot for the feature Hughes bolted to the lead at the drop of the green flag and paced the first nineteen circuits before Johnny Scott took over the lead on lap 20. Hughes pursued him for the next five laps before retaking the lead on the white flag lap. Jason went on to claim the apparent win. However in post race inspection it was discovered that when Hughes changed motors earlier in the day he forgot to remove an unapproved, rev-limiting chip. The miscue cost him a $4,000 payday as he was relegated to a disappointing, twenty-third place finish.

Saturday night found the team traveling to West Siloam Speedway (Colcord, Oklahoma) as Jason looked for redemption for the previous night's mistake. With twenty-four entries in the pits Hughes raced from sixth to second in his heat to again find himself in the redraw. He received the seventh starting spot for the 40 lap finale in the redraw and would go on to record a fifth place finish behind race winner, Stormy Scott, Johnny Scott, Zack VanderBeek, and Jeremy Payne.
