Newcomer George Jackson commented, “The crosskart is an extremely fun car to drive! When I tested it, I felt elements of rally, road, and sprint car driving dynamics. I’m excited for the challenge and looking forward to a little shake-and-bake this Saturday race night at Perris Auto Speedway!”

While this will be Jacksons first competition race in the crosskarts he is no stranger to sitting behind a steering wheel. With 13 years of experience as a driver encompassing Stuntwork, Sprint cars, Road Racing, Formula cars, GT cars and Rally cars, the southern California local will certainly bring a high level of competition to the already action-packed racing roster.

Jackson will be joined by another driver who has been in the spotlight as of late. Lisa Clark, an accomplished Ferrari Challenge driver will also climb into the cockpit of a Fast & Speed USA crosskart this weekend. Clark has recently been the subject of much fanfare based off her role on the top new Netflix series “Fastest Car” along with coach Kevin Madsen. Clark competed gracefully on the show in her Ferrari 488 all the way to the finale where she ended up on the podium. Her performance and attitude on the program has left a lasting impact on many future women in motorsports and there is likely to be a similarly warm welcome from the crowd at Perris Auto Speedway.
