Jesse Prather Motorsports drivers had an outstanding season in 2013, winning SCCA Majors and Divisional Championships, and shining at the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs®.

Matt Reynolds was the fastest E Prod car at the 2013 Runoffs.

In F Production, the JPM Mazda Miatas flexed their muscle, taking five of the top 10 positions at the National Championship Runoffs, including the top seven finishing Miatas. U.S. Majors Tour Mid-States Conference Champion Eric Prill led the group, finishing a career-best second place to an Acura Integra as well as setting the race’s fastest lap. Charlie Campbell (fourth), Bill Hingston (fifth), Michael Froh (ninth) and Mike Sturm (10th) each scored top-10 finishes. Dieter Griesinger (11th) and Mark Weber (12th) just missed out on making the top 10 in their JPM-powered Miatas. Rick Harris ran in the top five before having a transmission issue. Steve Hussey also fell out early, with a transmission problem.

After dominating every race he hit during the regular season, E Production nationwide points Champion and U.S. Majors Tour Mid-States Champion Matt Reynolds had a thrilling Runoffs race, leading early but spinning back to 14th in oil. From there, the young Texan put on one of the best shows of the week, running down the competition, setting a track record in the process and making a move for the lead on the final lap. Reynolds and Greg Ira’s Datsun made contact in Turn Eight as the Miata moved to the front, an incident that ultimately drew a penalty. While Reynolds took the checkered flag first, he was later moved to fourth place. Despite the ultimate result, Reynolds established himself as the man to beat heading into 2014.

Behind Reynolds, Jesse Prather had a solid run to fifth, the best for the new model JPM MX-5 Miata. Prather ran as high as third in the race, battling with an array of Miatas, BMWs and Datsuns.

Congratulations to all of our racers at the Runoffs, and throughout the 2013 season!
