- DAKAR UTV RACER
Son of off-road racing champion Jesse Jones, Austin or as most people call him “AJ” Jones grew up in off-road racing in the pits of his fathers race teams. AJ grew up watching his father racing short course and desert racing and quickly started driving UTV’s under the careful tutelage of his father. In 2017 AJ started navigating with his dad in the Best In The Desert series. His Dad continued training him during pre-running, teaching him on the fundamentals of off-road racing, everything from car control, to navigation, to gameplanning for a race.
In just four short years, AJ Jones has been able to accomplish what most off-road racers spend their lifetime trying to achieve. In 2018 AJ teamed up with Bryce Swain to race the TSCO built and prepped Thunderstruck 6100 truck. The duo had immediate success winning the Parker 425, then going on to dominate the SCORE series beginning with a second place at the San Felipe 250, winning the Baja 500 then winning the Baja 1000 securing the SCORE championship by domination.
