‘We went out as a low budget team and we feel like we definitely held our own. I feel like if we had sponsors and better equipment we would improve our program and run a lot more shows and get more experience under our belts. After being the second female driver to ever make the Belleville Midget Nationals and finishing 15th, 5 positions better than Sarah McCune” ( the first female in the country to make the Belleville Midget Nationals), “I feel very accomplished as a female driver.

The promoters were very respectful and made me feel welcome, “said Jamison.
“I would like to give special thanks to the people on my crew that took time away from work to help and support the team. Tony Rossi and his team including Bill and Ron have been so much help regardless of having their own team and problems this year to deal with”.
