Skip Jackson will go down as one of the most popular drivers to ever compete at the Knoxville Raceway. The native of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia now calls Knoxville home. In 2010, Skip won the “Junior Fan Club Driver of the Year”, going to the young fans’ favorite driver, for an unprecedented sixth straight time. It came in a season that saw Skip perform a late season run to qualify for his sixth Knoxville Nationals finale, and jump to third in the season point standings.
Skip is not just popular, but is also a two-time champion at the Knoxville Raceway (1997 and 1998). Skip burst on the Knoxville scene in 1991 after showing up at Knoxville for the first time in June. From there, he put a solid August Nationals finish together finishing 5th in the prelim and 14th in the final in his first try.
Skip has over 80 wins to his credit, including 25 at the Knoxville Raceway (9th all-time). He won World Series Sprintcars (the Outlaws of Australia) titles in 1997 and 1999. He was the Parramatta City Raceway (near his hometown of Sydney) champion in 1993 and 1996. He was also a two-time Australian champion (2000 & 2001).
In 14 of his 16 racing seasons at Knoxville, consistency has seen Skip finish in the top five, and he has never finished outside of the top ten. In 2007, Skip was named one of the top 100 Australian drivers in the history of auto sports by Auto Action Magazine.
