Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian has announced that beginning with this year’s 15th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals on November 4th, 5th and 6th, there will be a “Jesse Hockett Hard Charger Award” for the driver who passes the most cars in the A main event. Hockett, a star racer from Warsaw, Missouri, lost his life while working on his hauler in May. […]
Finding racing action around the Midwest became a big challenge last weekend, but “The Rocket” Jesse Hockett found some in Oklahoma. The ASCS-Sooner region was running at Creek County Speedway near Sapulpa, and the JHR #77 was in the house just in time for another top ten run. […]
Jesse “The Rocket” Hockett’s solid start to the season continued with another pair of top five finishes against stout competition in South Texas. Though he lost the lead late in the race Saturday night, the Warsaw, Missouri driver feels the new VKCC #75 team is off to a good start. The team will take this weekend off before the Lucas Oil ASCS National series season commences on March 19 and 20 at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas.
Jesse “The Rocket” Hockett was close to gaining a second crown in a row at the Ronald Laney Memorial “King of the 360’s” at East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa, Florida last Saturday night. He would settle for second in a successful first weekend back to open the 2010 season. He will now get things ready for the Devil’s Bowl Speedway and Lucas Oil ASCS action on March 19 and 20. […]
Jesse “The Rocket” Hockett returned to the States from his Australian tour last week to compete in the Chili Bowl at the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A run in the top ten in the prelim put him in Saturday’s B main where he failed to advance. The Warsaw, Missouri will take a bit of a break now before his next action in Florida. He hopes to defend his crown in the Ronald Laney Memorial “King of the 360’s” held February 25, 26 and 27.
“The Rocket” Jesse Hockett made the last race of 2009 count when he took the win at the December 30 meeting at the Titan Garages Brisbane International Speedway last Wednesday night! It was the first time Jesse had laid eyes on Queensland, but he saw his fair share of rain, as the event was postponed four days by the wet stuff. […]
It’s taken from Boxing Day to nearly New Years Eve but the rain in Brisbane finally eased long enough for American Jesse Hockett to win the thirty-lap International Sprintcar Series Feature event at Titan Garages Brisbane International Speedway on Thursday night December 30, although the night’s racing was soured by a freak injury to leading Qld Sprintcar driver Darren Jensen during a Heat race earlier in the evening. […]
Qld has long been hailed as the Sunshine State, a “mecca” for sun-loving tourists, so it’s a little ironic that the wet weather that has beset the Brisbane area over the past week or so has actually allowed time for some American tourists to see the local sites and do their own bit to boost the local economy. […]
The leading North American sprint car feature winner of 2009 is heading “Down Under”!

[…]

“The Rocket” Jesse Hockett was hoping to haul the big money from the Short Track Nationals back to Warsaw, Missouri. He would end up seven spots short, salvaging a tough weekend by earning hard-charger honors in the finale. This week, he’ll take the VKCC Motorsports/Tom Buch #13 to Tulare, California, and take the wings off for USAC/CRA action at the Thunderbowl Raceway. […]
Jesse Hockett’s trip to California looked like it might find him heading home with 5,000 large, but it didn’t end up that way. A rough Friday at the Trophy Cup saw him switch venues on Saturday and head to the Ventura Raceway, where it looked like the top prize would be his. An official’s decision cost him a shot at the win, and this week he’ll tackle the Short Track Nationals in Little Rock aiming at an even bigger $15,000 prize. […]
