1May 24th, 2013 - After seeing Wednesday night's USMTS program fall victim to rain at I-35 Speedway (Mason City, Iowa) the team traveled to Fairmont Raceway (Fairmont, Minnesota) for a $4,000-to-win program on Thursday night. Twenty-eight competitors were on hand for the program, and a fourth to first run in his heat race transferred Hughes to the redraw for the feature, where he received the seventh starting spot. He would go on to pass four cars on his way to a third place finish behind race winner, Johnny Scott, and Stormy Scott.

Friday night found the team pitted at Chateau Raceway (Lansing, Minnesota) under threatening skies. Twenty-two racers entered the program, and Hughes passed three cars to finish third in his heat race, which locked him into the redraw for the feature. However, shortly after heat race action rain would arrive, which forced the program to be postponed to a future date.

Jason's weekend came to a frustrating end on Saturday night at Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) with a $2,000-to-win, USMTS program. With forty-three entries in the pit area, mechanical woes sidelined him in in heat race action, and the team made the decision to scratch from the balance of the program.

May 18th, 2013 - The past few months have been a challenge for Jason Hughes and Hughes Motorsports as they've battled mechanical issues and bad luck, but on Saturday night at West Plains Motor Speedway (West Plains, Missouri) they put that all behind them as Jason charged to his first victory of the 2013 season!

Thirty-four competitors converged on the 3/8 mile oval, and Jason started his night by winning his heat race to lock into the redraw for the $4,000-to-win finale. While fellow front row starter, Jeremy Payne, led the first nine circuits Hughes took over the top spot on lap 10 and never looked back on his way to the victory, which came over Payne, Rodney Sanders, Ryan Gustin, and Kelly Shryock.

"It feels great to get this first win out of the way, especially after all the bad luck we've had so far this year," Hughes noted. "Hopefully this is the first of many to come for the rest of the year, and I can't thank all of my sponsors, crew, and fans for their support!"

Hughes Race Cars continues to hold a dominating lead in the Tiger Rear Ends Manufacturers Championship standings.

Hughes had high hopes for the main event, but would ultimately battle the handle to an eighth place finish in the final rundown. Full results from the event are available at www.USMTS.com.

May 5th, 2013 - Award winning chassis manufacturer and champion Modified racer Jason Hughes has formed a technical partnership with JRi Shocks to offer Hughes Race Cars customers only the best in shock absorber technology.

“JRi Shocks designed a really good shock,” said Hughes of the JRi SL/10, which was developed with the same performance based technology that JRi incorporates in all of their products, while remaining cost effective for the racer. “I am very impressed with the performance of the shock, and the fact that JRi improved and customized the shock package to achieve the feel I was personally looking for based on my feedback.”

The JRi SL/10 Steel Body Damper features innovative technology that allows for low hysteresis, high frequency response, low rod pressure, and a low drag, lightweight design. The nitrogen charged shock is available with or without a Schrader valve and in non and double adjustable designs to conform to series rules.

Not only is JRi Shocks leading the new era in shock absorber technology, but also in technical support. Whether in Circle Track, Drag Racing, NASCAR, or IndyCar, JRi Shocks provides industry leading on-site track support and non-stop customer service to all customers.

“JRi’s technical support is better than I have ever had,” said Hughes, the 2010 United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) Champion. “The customer service is phenomenal. They go above and beyond what I expected to make everything better.”

In order to extend JRi’s unrivaled technology and performance, Hughes Race Cars has joined JRi Shocks as a distributor. Over the past several years, Hughes Race Cars have become one of the most renowned Open Wheel Modified chassis on the planet. JRi Shocks and Hughes Race Cars share the desire to be the best, as both JRi and the two-time defending USMTS Manufacturers Championship victor continuously strive to improve an already dominant product through research, feedback, and innovative technology.

Since forming the technical alliance, both Hughes and drivers piloting a Hughes Racing Chassis have already found success with JRi Shocks on the racetrack. In addition to Hughes’s multiple podium finishes in USMTS competition, Chris Brown recently scored a USMTS victory in Texas.
