The next generation of the Myers family continues to impress, as young apprentice Jake Myers has taken to the steering wheel.
Father, Gary Myers, having won a series of accolades and awards during his 35 years in the sport, couldn’t be prouder of his son after competing alongside him in the Supernats over the weekend.
Having competed from a very young age, starting at 15, Jake has won a number of competitions in his comparatively short six-year career. With many years of riding alongside his father, it is no surprise that talent and drive is strong in the family.
In 2016 Jake placed third in the nation’s biggest competition of the year, the Summernats. Unfortunately, after sustaining a broken arm in an accident on a motorbike earlier this year, Jake was forced to pull out of the 2017 competition. In his second competition back for the year, Jake took out the Supernats highest prize, the $10,000 Top Gun Burnout championship.
Taking out the top prize in what was previously his fathers car, a revamped ’66 Ford Mustang, made the win all the more special. Mr Myers commented saying that, “The competition was good, there were a lot of top cars.”
Jake has now won a wildcard entry into the 2018 Summernats Burnout masters, where he will again compete alongside his seven- time champion father.
