Mike JenkinsOwner, Jenkins Brothers RacingHometown: McKinney, Texas DOB

As the owner of Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control®, Mike has spent a lifetime around radio-controlled racing cars and trucks, and fulfilled his passion for full-size motorsports with forays into motocross, drag racing, and later, road racing with Corvettes, Miatas and other sports cars. In 2007, Mike and brother, Mark, began racing the SCCA’s Mazda MX-5 Cup series, which features specially prepared open-roof sports cars with strict “spec” rules that keep the cars very closely matched. In this highly competitive form of sports car racing, meticulous preparation and precise, consistent driving are critical to success, and are skills that translate to all racing disciplines— including off-road racing.

After a trip to Primm, Nevada for an up-close look at short-course off-road racing, Mike recognized the high-intensity motorsport as the perfect fit for Traxxas, the number-one name in hobby-class radio controlled cars and trucks. The over-the-top horsepower, incredible air-time and full-throttle driving style of short-course racing was like off-road R/C gone “full size.” Traxxas soon signed on to sponsor Pro Light champ Jeff Kincaid. Mike and Mark formed Jenkins Brothers Racing to field a two-truck Traxxas team of their own, with Mark driving a Pro 2WD truck and Mike climbing into a Pro 4X4 machine.

Despite racing against a field of drivers with far more off-road experience, Mike finished his rookie season with ten top-10 finishes, one top-five, and two third-place podium spots in seventeen starts to become the 2008 Pro-4 Rookie of the Year. In 2009, Traxxas signed on as the title sponsor of TORC, THE Traxxas Off-Road Championship. Mike finished the inaugural TORC season with five top-5 finishes and two visits to the podium. He finished third at the historic Crandon International Raceway, and capped the season with his first TORC-series win in the final round of TORC racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In 2013, Mike competed in the inagural season of the now SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road presented by Traxxas series. The close-quarters, tight racing is done in trucks that are slightly smaller than a short-course truck. Once the season was completed, Mike was back at the helm of a short-course truck exclusively.

After putting in countless hours of seat time piloting the Traxxas #47, Mike expanded his driving presence and began competing in both the Pro-2 and Pro-4 classes of The Off-Road Championship presented by Amsoil. In the 2014 season, Mike claimed 4 top-5 finishes in Pro-2 with an appearance on the podium. In Pro 4, he had 11 top-5 finishes and 3 trips to the podium. Consistency paid off as Mike finished in the top-5 in points standing at the end of the season. The momentum from this season carried into the 2015 season as Mike competed exclusively in the Pro 4 class. Several trips to the podium and top-5 finishes payed off as Mike wrapped up the season 4th in the points standing for Pro 4.
