Jackson Lee Racing Sponsorship

Accelerating cancer research

To mark 30 years of accelerating lifesaving research, the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center is putting the pedal to the metal through a new auto racing sponsorship.

The cancer center has joined formula car driver Jackson Lee as the primary sponsor on his No. 2 Cape Motorsports entry in the 2022 Cooper Tires USF2000 championship.

Through the sponsorship, Cancer Center Director Kelvin Lee, MD, has the goal of connecting with the community to tout the cancer center’s research accomplishments that have benefited countless lives over the last three decades.

Dr. Lee also hopes that the year-long sponsorship will create opportunities for team building within the cancer center, giving members and staff a rallying point after the challenges of the pandemic.

“Hoosiers are far too humble. I’m looking forward to this sponsorship allowing us to share just how much cancer expertise exists right here in Indiana.”
