BMARA: Were you a fan of racing before you got behind the wheel and if so, who were your heroes and what tracks did you attend?

Jordan: My dad made me a fan of racing very early on, as far back as I can remember. My first bike was even a Jeff Gordon bike with training wheels he was one of my early heroes as well as Dale Earnhardt and Tony Stewart.

BMARA: Give us a synopsis of your racing career:

Jordan: My Dad got me into Karting at the age of 5. We primarily raced at Badger Kart Club in Dousman, WI and also raced up in Shawano, WI at USAIR, as well as Illinois and Indiana for the WKA Series. I raced Karts for 9 years until I decided to try stick and ball sports. We picked up racing again in 2021 with BMARA and ran 3 seasons.

BMARA: How much time do you spend on the car each week during the season?

Jordan: I would say we work on the racecar about 10-12 hours a week.

BMARA: What is your day job and how does racing fit in?

Jordan: I am a Steamfitter at Local 601 Milwaukee. Racing fits in well with it unless we spend a little more time after the races in the pits on Sundays. ( I get up quite early so that makes Monday mornings a little tougher.)

BMARA: What's something interesting the fans might not know about you?

Jordan: Something people may not know about me yet- My great Uncle is Pepi Marchese. My number has always been #98 because of him as well as my dads.

If you've been around our trailer you may have seen an American flag as well as the Marine Corps flag flying. I joined the Marine Corps after high school and served from 2015-2019 and deployed for 8 months in that time. After the Corps, we picked up racing again shortly after!
