Local Teays Valley Kid Makes Tracks as Quarter Midget Racing Champion


Circleville, Ohio (February 21, 2024): Hold onto your hats, racing fans! Ten-year-old Jax Floyd from South Bloomfield is tearing up the track in the world of quarter midget racing, already racking up an impressive record of eleven championships and a coveted track record.

Jax started his racing journey in 2020 and hasn’t looked back since. He pilots not one, but two cars in the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) Youth Racing Series, competing in two different classes. His talent and dedication have already paid off, earning him the title of Driver of the Year in 2022 and etching his name in the record books with the Jr Honda Track Record at both the Miami Valley Quarter Midget Racing Association (MVQMRA) and the Mac-O-Chee Quarter Midget Racing Association (Mac-O-Chee QMRA).

But Jax’s passion extends beyond the checkered flag. Quarter midget racing, he says, is about more than just speed. It’s about family, teamwork, and sportsmanship. With his family serving as his pit crew, mechanics, and scorers, Jax learns valuable lessons about competition, winning with grace, and losing with dignity.

Their local racing circuit takes them to tracks in Obetz, Xenia, London, and West Liberty, but Jax’s ambitions reach further. This year, he sets his sights on the national stage, aiming to compete in races across Charlotte, Darlington, Richmond, and even Kansas Speedway.

Beyond the race track, Jax shines in the classroom, maintaining straight A’s, and on the basketball court, where he earned a spot on the Teays Valley All Star Basketball Team. This young athlete is proving that success comes not just from talent, but from dedication, teamwork, and a well-rounded spirit.

So, the next time you hear the roar of engines, remember the name Jax Floyd – a local champion with a bright future ahead, both on and off the track.
