Person of the Week: Marcus TyRell Jones

Marcus TyRell Jones

Living in a small town in Montrose, Ga no one in his family ever drag raced anything. 
  Marcus’s dad was very  protective of him and it took a while to get him on board  the idea of motorcycle drag racing. However his father went to his first MIROCK race in March of 2012 and showed his full support along with his mother.

At age 15 his uncle Tony started taking him to the track where he got the racing bug. Marcus then got a job at Suzuki of Dublin and learned his way around a motorcycle. When he was 17  his co-workers urged him to go for it. He bought a Suzuki GSX-R600 and the first time out on the track was all it took, he has been hooked ever since.

Marcus is now engaged to Diana Martinez with a brand new baby at home. Diana  supports him 100%. They have known each other since middle school. She is in charge of booking hotel rooms for my future races and planning out the trip so we can make it an entire family experience.
