Jason Cocking

Instructor

Jason was born into a racing family, and as a third generation driver he developed a love for speed and competition at an early age. Some of his fondest childhood memories are watching his father race at the local off-road track and even in the Kingdome when the Mickey Thompson Stadium Off-Road Series was around in the 80’s and 90’s.

At age 11 he began his own racing career in a flat-track odyssey built by his father. By 13 he was racing in the open pro class with the adults, and winning, collecting multiple championships over 7 seasons. At 19 he jumped into a full size winged sprint car. He spent 5 years racing with some of the best open wheel drivers on the west coast, and even some of the best drivers in the world like Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Larson.

These days he enjoys being a racing fan, and spending time with his wife and their baby boy Kaizer. “Joining the team here at Dirtfish has allowed me to improve and diversify my driving skills. I love being behind the wheel and sharing that with our students and helping them find skills and success is really rewarding.”
