As told by Mike Kimble: Jay was a consistent front runner asphalt late models driver at JIS. How many Mississippi racing fans remember Jay racing and winning in a dirt supermodified at Jackson Sports Arena. Jay drove a black and orange #301 super. It was owned by the same Louisiana car owner who later owned the #301 Chevelle that Freddy Fryar dominated the Late Model Class at JIS in 1969, the last year JIS was a NASCAR sanctioned track.
