1September 27th, 2014 - Jason Hughes made his debut at the famed Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa) over the weekend for the 11th Annual Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS), sanctioned the crown jewel event, which drew seventy-nine entries for Thursday night's $7,000-to-win, preliminary program. Via his efforts during time trials, Jason earned the seventh starting spot in his heat race. Disaster struck for Hughes in his heat race while battling for position. Contact from another competitor sent him hard into the outside wall, totaling his #12 Road Runner Trucking/Bloomquist Super Late Model and bringing his night to an early end.

On Friday evening, another $7,000-to-win, preliminary event was contested at the 1/2 mile oval. Hoping for a better outing, Hughes started ninth in his heat race and finished ninth, sending him to the c-main. He raced to a fifth place finish in the c-main, but only the top four finishers advanced to the b-main, leaving him one spot short of the transfer and bringing his night to an early end.

Hughes' preliminary night performances left him starting deep in the C-Main on Saturday night. He failed to reach a transfer position in the C-Main, forcing him to utilize an LOLMDS Emergency Provisional to lock into the 100 lap, $40,000-to-win finale. Despite starting 33rd on the grid, Jason progressively worked his way forward throughout the event, registering a solid twelfth place finish at the checkered flag.

Jason is tenth in the series' Championship Point Standings and continues to lead the Rookie of the Year chase. Full results from the weekend and the latest standings are available at www.LucasDirt.com

1September 20th, 2014 - After a week away from the track, Jason Hughes was back in the seat of his #12 Road Runner Trucking/Bloomquist Super Late Model at Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) for the 35th Annual Jackson 100.

The $20,000-to-win program, which was sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS), drew a talented field of forty-seven competitors to the 1/4 mile oval. Action got underway on Friday night with qualifications, and Jason's qualifying effort earned him the second starting spot for his heat race on Saturday night.

Unfortunately, Hughes slipped to a fifth place finish in his heat race which left him one spot short of the transfer, sending him to a b-main. He later won the b-main to lock into the eighteenth starting spot for the 100 lap finale. In the feature, Jason battled around mid-pack for much of the event before ultimately crossing the finish line in eighteenth.
