The IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center is the primary sponsor of formula car driver Jackson Lee during the 2023 season.
Jackson, a motorsports engineering student at IUPUI, will be driving the No. 47 IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center/Browning Chapman/Prime 47 car in the 2023 USF Pro 2000 Championship presented by Cooper Tires.
This year’s sponsorship includes a forthcoming public education campaign about cancer prevention and early detection with a focus on lung, breast, testis, colon, and head and neck cancers. In addition, Jackson and his father, NBC Sports reporter and local radio personality Kevin Lee, will also co-host the annual Prime 47 Indy Burger Bash on May 22. The fundraiser, featuring guest appearances by other professional race car drivers, will benefit the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center and kick off race week in Indianapolis leading up to the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500.
During last year’s sponsorship, Jackson Lee Racing helped celebrate the center’s 30th anniversary and raise awareness of its history of lifesaving research.
