He is a multi-race winner in FRP F1600 & the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series and a Team USA Scholarship winner.  He has raced for three seasons in the INDYCAR development system including the top step of the USF Pro Championships ladder with a best finish of 5th in USF Pro 2000 in 2023.  His 2024 schedule is predominantly in IMSA including a pair of 2nd place finishes in IMSA VP Racing SportsCar Challenge and select events in IMSA’s top support series, Michelin Pilot Challenge. Jackson also works as a driver coach for junior level drivers.

He began on short ovals in USAC Quarter Midgets just prior to turning 8, where he earned two championships before moving to karting & road course racing at 11, which included 2nd & 3rd place championship finishes.

In December 2018, Jackson won a scholarship in the Cooper Tires Karting Shootout at Sebring with the Lucas Oil School of Racing. In 2019, Jackson finished 4th in the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series championship with 2 wins, 6 podiums, fastest lap in 3 races & 1 pole.  He led the championship through much of the 1st half and remained in contention until the final weekend.  A one-off weekend in the FRP F1600 Championship for RiceRace included a pole and 2nd place finish.

2020 started with a 2nd place finish at Road America in the SCCA June Sprints & included plans for a full-season championship bid in FRP F1600 with RiceRace. Through 12 of 18 rounds , he had 2 wins, 7 podiums and 2 fastest laps and was 2nd in points.  Winning the prestigious Team USA Scholarship meant an end to the F1600 season in favor of 3 major events in England with Low Dempsey Racing, which included a podium in his heat in the Formula Ford Festival, 10th in the Final (out of 50 entered), 4th in a heat in the Walter Hayes Trophy, & reaching the Grand Final (out of 103 entries) before being collected in a crash.

The 2022 season was spent with Cape Motorsports in USF2000.  Highlights included posting the 2nd fastest lap in the Fall ’21 test event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,  crossing the line a close 5th at Road America, a 7th place finish at St. Petersburg plus three more top 10 results. The season ended early with only 13 of 18 rounds completed after being collected in an extensive crash. 

2023 saw a move up to USF Pro 2000 with Turn 3 Motorsport for 11 of the 18 races and a best finish of 5th at Sebring.  It also included sports car racing with a test at IMS in a BMW M4 GT4 car for Fast Track Racing and a pair of races in a BMW M2 for AOA Racing during the Indy 8 Hour event in TC America in the TCX class which included a 4th place overall finish.
