Team Deans: Where does your passion for racing coming from?
Jason Thoma: Ever since I was a kid, we always traveled around to different tracks like The Milwaukee Mile and The Minnesota State fair. We would go into the pits afterwards and meet the drivers. I would get so excited. I was able to meet drivers like; Dick Trickle, Joe Shear, Dale Sr and Rusty Wallace. I have pictures as a little kid standing by these incredible racers. I always dreamed of doing what they did. My dad influenced me, because of his amazing love for racing. Thank you dad!
Team Deans: What is your best memory growing up as a kid?
Jason Thoma: We would go on the best vacations. Always road trips. My parents took us all over, checking out different national landmarks. Stopping in at a race track, if there was one close by.
Team Deans: When you aren’t at the shop or the track what are you typically doing?
Jason Thoma: Lots of family time. I have 3 great kids that are involved in many activities like soccer, swimming, dance to name a few. I try to get to as many of their activities as I can. Also hanging out at home with my beautiful wife. They are supportive of my racing so I try to reciprocate that when I can.
Team Deans: How do you get your racing fix in during the off-season?
Jason Thoma: Mario Cart, definitely. We make it into a family tournament. I’ve found that I’m not the only one for a need for speed.
Team Deans: If you never started racing what would you be doing on the weekends?
Jason Thoma: Camping and boating during the summer like I used to do with my parents when I was a kid.
Team Deans: What are you most excited about for the upcoming 2016 season?
Jason Thoma: We’ve been doing our homework this off season and are excited to apply what we’ve learned. We are going to be participating in 2 traveling series this year that we are really looking forward too. Last year didn’t end on a high note so we are looking forward to getting out there again. It’s going to be an exciting year and can’t wait to get back on the track!
