James Ott stunned the Progressive American Flat Track paddock with a spectacular showing in his series debut at the 2019 Texas Half-Mile. There, the 16-year-old Ott found himself well outside the top ten early in the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles Main Event. Despite the deep and talented field in front of him, Ott proceeded to rip his way up through the order. By the time the final lap arrived, Ott had somehow worked into position to make a last-corner bid to overtake class superstars Mikey Rush and Shayna Texter for victory. While he ended up a quarter-of-a-second off the win at the flag, Ott made a huge impression with his maiden podium finish. Ott finished his first full season of Parts Unlimited AFT Singles competition in 14th overall in 2020, including three top tens. He added two more top tens in 2021 to finish the season ranked 17th overall. Ott took a significant step forward in 2022, securing his first career top-ten championship ranking in Parts Unlimited AFT Singles action. That accomplishment was built on the strength of ten top tens highlighted by a pair of top fives. Prior to making his Progressive AFT debut, the young phenom starred in Southern California Flat Track Association action, where he raced alongside his father and his brother.
