Jamies parents Jan & Jerry Powell that go to most of the races and supply the enclosed trailer to get the car to the track, and other friends help out allot in different ways. Don Current, Kevin Peterson, and the Paperboy Express Mudracing Team. "Without these people I'd never be able to do what I do". Thank You All!!
