Hockett wins in first visit to Calistoga - By Bill Sullivan …CALISTOGA, CA (6-17-05) – What happens when you put one of the Midwest’s top drivers aboard one of the area’s most competitive 360 powered sprint cars on California’s biggest dirt track ? The answer was pretty evident Saturday night at Calistoga Speedway when Jessie Hockett of Warsaw, Missouri drove the locally owned Mark and Suzie Flachman #55 sprint car to victory lane in the third annual Calistoga Speedway. Hockett was one of 39 competitors in competition at the famed half-mile track in the heart of the Napa Valley Saturday night. Following the victory the team was $2300 richer courtesy of event sponsor M&M Structures of Woodland. M&M Structures added $1500 to the feature event purse Saturday night which was distributed down the finishing order to assist with travel and tire costs incurred by area teams. Saturday’s win was the third consecutive win for the Flachman team and the second straight Civil War victory. Just three weeks ago the team clinched a victory in the second leg of the series at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico with Indiana’s Brad Sweet behind the wheel. “I have to thank the Flachman’s for the opportunity to come out here and drive for them tonight,” said 22-year-old Hockett, who flew in Saturday morning after racing in Jefferson, South Carolina and Dennison, Iowa the two previous nights “I met Mark through our mutual friend Billy Alley. We had an off night tonight so it was great opportunity for me to come out here and race at this famous track. I’ve never been here before but I have seen this place in a lot of old race videos.” (Read it all)

Hockett a Baton Rouge Rocket - By Lonnie Wheatley, BATON ROUGE, Lou. (March 10, 2006) – Jesse Hockett proved to be too hot to handle in Friday night’s 30-lap O’Reilly American Sprint Cars on Tour Louisiana Shootout at Baton Rouge Raceway as he scored his first series win of the year over a stellar field with a packed house witnessing the action unfold. Hockett outdueled Aaron Berryhill in the early rounds then repelled the challenges of Jason Johnson, Gary Wright and Travis Rilat to secure the victory aboard the Wesmar-powered VKCC Motorsports No. 75 DRC-chassis. “This is an awesome way to start out with our brand new DRC,” an enthused Hockett commented from victory lane after his fourth career ASCS National Tour victory. “This was my kind of race track, slick through the middle with a good top to lean on, I loved it.” (More)
