Racing to close the care gap
Jackson, a 19-year-old from Avon, Indiana, is currently a motorsports engineering major at IUPUI and has been racing formula cars for four years. Like so many others, Jackson’s family has been impacted by cancer, as he lost his grandfather to lung cancer nearly two decades ago.
Jackson is entering his second season in USF2000, which is part of the Road to Indy, and races during INDYCAR weekend events at tracks around the country, including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course event in mid-May.
Jackson’s goal is to reach INDYCAR and the Indy 500 by 2026. Jackson won a karts-to-cars scholarship, has won four formula car races with 16 top-three finishes and won a Team USA Scholarship in 2020 to race in several prestigious events in England.
