1March 9th, 2013 - Team 5 Enterprise traveled to Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, Louisiana) over the weekend for the 3rd Annual Pelican 100. The $10,000-to-win event attracted a field of forty-seven Super Late Models to the 1/4 mile oval, and after a solid qualifying effort Mitchell started second in his heat race, but would jump the berm in his heat race, while battling at the front of the pack. He brought out the caution and rejoined the tail of the field before finishing ninth. His heat race finish left him starting deep in a b-main on Saturday night, and Mitchell actually charged into a transfer spot before contact with another competitor eliminated him from contention as his weekend came to an early end.

1March 2nd, 2013 - Jon opened his 2013 season on Saturday night at The Dirt Track at Texas Motor Speedway (Justin, Texas) during the annual Port-A-Cool Texas World Dirt Track Championship. Thirty-nine Super Late Models registered for action in the P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racers (SUPR) sanctioned event. A big number at the pill draw left Mitchell starting ninth in the third heat race, and after advancing to a sixth place finish he was forced to run a b-main, where he started fifth. With the top four cars transferring to the feature Jon slipped to a sixth place finish. Despite not earning a transfer spot to the feature Mitchell received a series' provisional to start at the tail of the field. Unfortunately his bad luck for the day wasn't finished yet as a broken, rocker arm in the motor forced him to retire early from the feature to a nineteenth place finish.
