10 Questions with Jackson Boone

We have another champion in our ‘getting to know’ series featuring short track drivers🏆

Jackson Boone had an early season of brides-maids finishes and a rainy start to the season but finished strong with a championship in the Big Machine Vodka Pro Late Model Series at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.

Jackson took some time out of his day to meet with us before the season-ending race in Nashville where he captured the title. We hope to catch up with Boone next season as he continues with an already successful career.
