Division of Racing: Midvale speedways Mcintosh Oil co. latemodels
Jonathan Reitter Motorsports
How did you get started in racing:
My dad really got me into racing from the time i was born. He had been
a big NASCAR fan all his life and so naturally as was I. My favorite
driver was Davey Allison and thats the reason i run the #28 today. We
began racing in 2005 in oval karts at goodhope speedway and won the
championship there in my final season of karts in 2007.
What division and track
do i race in:
Mcintosh Oil co. latemodels at Midvale Speedway. We have also raced at
Barberton, Lorain county and Goodhope Speedways.
I run a coilover howe car. Its a late 90s car but has been updated
since. Its probably not the best car out there but its a solid piece
that gives me a chance each week.
Nascar driver driving
Id say im a mixture between Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth. Biffle for
the simple reason that i enjoy a loose race car and it seems im always
somewhat sideways. Id also like to think im a patient driver like
Kenseth and always finish most of the races i enter.
What i do for fun:
Baseball, Basketball and Boating at Tappen lake
2010 race that stick out
in my mind:
Our first time qualifying for the fast heat race. We didnt do great but
we we're fast enough to get a chance to run with the big boys of the
division. That was a big boost for our team.
Whats some your favorite
tv shows and movies?
Days of Thunder is obviously a racers favorite movie. Im also a huge
baseball fan so Bull Durham is a must along with For Love of The Game
and Field of Dreams. Stroker Ace is another good racing movie! As for
t.v. showes i prefer Two and A Half Men..however Charlie Sheen had to
ruin one of the greatest shows ever made!
Days of Thunder driver:
Cole Trickle...Im not a great mechanic nor do i know much about
latemodels yet but i like to think "there aint nothin i cant do with a
Well whats some of your
Roush Fenway Racing! As for baseball ive been an Atlanta Braves fan for
as long as i can remember as well as my local Pittsburgh Pirates but
they havnt had a winning season in 18 years. I also support the
Pittsburgh Penguins in hockey.
Is there anything you
like to change in racing?
If i were to change something id find a way to keep guys from running
traction control devices. Im not sure how id manage that but id sure
put alot of thought into how to prevent it from happening.
Goal for 2011:
In 2011 i would like to get my first feature win. with an updated
suspension i feel we're more poised than ever to make a good run at
My pap!, Parents, Your Auto Connection (primary sponsor), Hoopers Rock
Springs Parts and Service and Jodi Comm Photography. Also everybody who
has helped me since the beginning of my racing career!
