Jacob P. Finnerty, of Panama, N.Y., drives his "1J" Limited Late Model car at Stateline Speedway and Eriez Speedway with the big boys, and his long-range goal is to move to the open Late Models as soon as he can; however, there's no rush, as Finnerty is a junior at Panama Central School. He started racing go-karts when he was seven, and his hobbies include trapshooting, fishing and hunting. Finnerty is the Times Observer Driver of the Week, sponsored by S.J. Gafner Jewelers.
