Jesse Prather

Topeka, KS

Jesse Prather is a three-time consecutive SCCA National Champion (2006, ’07 and ’08). His drive in ’06 earned him the RRDC Mark Donohue Award when he nipped seven-time National Champion Steve Sargis by less than a second at Heartland Park Topeka to claim the F Production title. Until 2009, Jesse worked with his father Kent Prather, an eight-time National Champion who runs Prather Racing in Wakarusa, KS. That year, young Prather opened Jesse Prather Motorsports in Topeka, a prep shop that includes a chassis dyno. Since 2011, Jesse Prather engines have powered 15 podium finishing racecars at the Runoffs including seven National Championship winners.
