Jake Eidson started racing karts when he was 12 years old and entered his first race at the age of 13 in 2009. Jake won the 4th race he entered, which was a very special moment for him. The class that he was running in was very competitive and to win that race was quite an achievement. Completing his first full year of karting in 2009, Jake finished 4th overall in the Mile High Challenge and Racing the Rockies Series. In 2010 he finished 2nd overall in both the Mile High Challenge and Racing the Rockies Series. Later that year he also went on to win 1st place in the SKUSA Mountain Region. This season he finished 1st place in Racing the Rockies and also holds the track record for Rotax Jr. at Centennial Race Track.

In October 2010 Jake drove in the Skip Barber 3 Day School at Sebring Florida. This was the start of a very gratifying stage in Jake's development as a race driver. Having the opportunity to learn at such a famous and historical track was amazing. After the Skip Barber 3 Day School, Jake participated in the Skip Barber Karting Shootout at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

After competing in the Skip Barber Shoot Out, Jake raced the full Skip Barber Winter Western Series. His goal was to finish in the top 5 in overall points. At the end of the series he finished 4th. Jake was also awarded Rookie of the Year. That season provided a lot of great moments, and new friendships with Skip Barber staff and drivers. His best finish came at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Due to a scheduling conflict Jake missed qualifying for the last race of the series. Still able to compete, but had to start at the back of the grid in 16th place. By the 3rd full lap he was in 3rd place and lap 5 took 1st place.

After completing the Skip Barber Winter Western Series, Jake drove in three Skip Barber Summer races. At Road Atlanta Jake joined Jonatan Jorge head of Team JJRD - Jonatan Jorge Racing Development. Jake also had the opportunity to work with Jonatan Jorge at Lime Rock, in the last race of the Skip Barber Summer Series. For being Jakes first year of racing in the Skip Barber racing series, it was an extremely educational and memorable year.
