Driver Profile: Jake Hewlett

Racing for Coanda Simsport, Hewlett is a frequent podium contender alongside teammate deJong. He’s cracked the podium twice in nine tries on #DIRTNight, making him one of only four drivers to qualify for the broadcast at least nine times and one of eight drivers to take multiple podiums in the big show. He came within .185 seconds of a third podium last week in Daytona.
