Jackson is 12 years old and has been racing USAC .25 Midgets since he was 7. In his rookie year, Jack won over half of the features in which he raced, and was ultimately awarded the Capitol Quarter Midgets Rookie of the Year. Jackson earned the nickname "The Real Diehl" from USAC announcer Butch Lamb in his second year after sweeping the heat races at the USAC .25 Nationals at Chicagoland Speedway. Jack is currently the reigning Sr. Animal Midwest Thunder and Buckeye Winternationals Champion. He also won the MPI "Up On the Wheel" Hard Charger award at the 2020 USAC Nationals in Austin, TX, when he raced up through the lower mains to a 2nd place finish in Sr. Honda. He is also a proud recipient of the 2019 Dave Darland Sportsmanship Award.
Jack is known his smart, hard, and clean driving style. He has a knack for putting his car in a position to win races, whether or not he has the fastest car. Remarkably, he raced the entire 2020 Midwest Thunder season (over 30 races including heats and features in all classes) without going dead on the track or being called for causing a wreck during green flag racing.
Off the track, this Granger Indiana native is a straight A student who wants to study engineering in college. He runs cross country, and has competed in triathlons. He enjoys playing video games, especially racing games, with friends.
