|Hi! It’s finally time to get back in a race car! It’s been three months, but this weekend ends the drought. I will be back in a USF2000 car at Mid Ohio for races Saturday and Sunday for the final rounds of the CooperTires USF2000 Championship. I’m super excited to get back to a track I know very well and have had good results in the past. I have picked up my first win in two other series at Mid-Ohio, so let’s see if I can keep the trend going! (;
This weekend features the entire Road to Indy (Indy Pro 2000 and Indy Lights) and is a makeup for the cancelled Toronto IndyCar weekend that was to also include the Road to Indy.
I feel very confident coming into the weekend. I was very quick last time at Mid Ohio, and I have spent the last three months preparing to be at my best for this event. I have been working with Jonatan Jorge, one of the top coaches for many years who has worked with many IndyCar drivers, to make sure that I am fully prepared. Also, along with Jay Howard, IndyCar and sports car driver Spencer Pigot will be coaching me during the weekend to find every possible bit of lap time that is there. Spencer is a fellow Team USA Scholarship winner, a Rising Star Racing driver and is a former USF2000 winner at Mid Ohio!
I’m so thankful to be able to get back in the car for the final rounds this season. We wouldn’t have been able to be there this weekend without our new partner High Alpha – a venture studio in Indianapolis. And, thanks to Jay Howard Driver Development for saving me a seat and helping me learn all season. And, thank you again to our season long partners like Doug Mockett & Company, Browning Chapman Specialty Contractors in Westfield, Drink Spruce Cold Brew Coffee, Caldwell Realty, Caldwell Subways in Valparaiso/Hobart, Prime 47 Downtown Indy, Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, Cox Beckman Goss and Company CPA’s, Fastimes Indoor Karting, Hinchman Racewear, EVO, Tnemec and Indiana Coating Specialists.
Thanks to everyone who has made this weekend and this season possible. It has been an amazing season so far and I look forward to finishing strong and using the weekend to get next year started!
Stay Fast! Jackson
