LEMOORE, California (October 2, 2020) – An underdog by age comparison, Lodi, California’s “The Boss” JJ Loss may have been the youngest to enter Lemoore Raceway’s California Cup over Halloween weekend, but the 13-year-old Pennsylvania transplant was far from lacking speed, ultimately powering his Non-Wing 600cc micro sprint to a 12th-place performance against the best that the West Coast had to offer. 

Loss, driver of the JKL Racing, The California Graphics Co., KPR, Competition Suspension Incorporated (CSI), Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Freedom Offroad, Bev & Norm Warner, ISC Racers Tape, Kaeding Performance, No. 67 micro, joined over 40 competitors for Lemoore’s $6,000-to-win California Cup, battling head-to-head with non-wing racers from all parts of California, Oregon, Washington, and even Arizona, Oklahoma and Texas. The three-day program, headlining action on October 29-31, featured three, full programs; two preliminary events on Thursday and Friday, followed by the finale on Saturday. Drivers accumulated points during preliminary competition which, in turn, determined the lineup for Saturday’s 40-lap showstopper. 

Despite a tough start to his weekend, missing main event action during Thursday’s preliminary program, “The Boss” perfected a complete 180 and translated his tough start into a podium performance, completing Friday’s preliminary with a runner-up finish and ultimately locking himself into Saturday’s finale. 

With all preliminary points considered, Loss started 13th on Saturday’s grid, eventually moving forward one position during the non-stop, 40-lap contest to finish 12th. 

“That was a lot of fun. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support,” Loss said, a rookie in the 600cc non-wing ranks. “It has been a fun and successful year for our team and we owe all of that to our partners. I’m fortunate to have a lot of great people behind me, including my family. We are going to end our season next weekend at Dixon, so I’m excited to work toward a win to finish our year.”

JJ Loss and JKL Racing will conclude their 2020 season with a visit to Dixon Speedway in Dixon, California, on Friday and Saturday, November 6-7. Loss will enter two classes for the eighth running of the Lonnie Kaiser Memorial, joining the Stock 600 ranks, as well as the Non-Wing 600s. Certainly no stranger to the Central California bullring, Loss is the reigning Rookie of the Year at Dixon and concluded his championship chase seventh in the final standings. 

JJ Loss and JKL Racing would like to thank all of their primary and product marketing partners including: The California Graphics Co., KPR, Competition Suspension Incorporated (CSI), Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Freedom Offroad, Bev & Norm Warner, ISC Racers Tape, and Kaeding Performance.
