From Road to Indy to Indycar
Lead Instructor, INDYCAR Driver
At 23-years old, Lead Race Series Instructor RC Enerson is the youngest member of the instructing staff at Lucas Oil School of Racing, but don’t let his age fool you. Racing since the age of five, the New Port Richey, FL native grew up karting and has moved up the ranks, making waves at each stage of his racing career. Enerson made his Verizon IndyCar Series debut in 2016 with Dale Coyne Racing driving the #19 Boy Scouts Dallara-Honda at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, a track he won at previously in both USF2000 and IndyLights. RC recently drove in the NTT IndyCar Series Mid Ohio race in the Lucas Oil School of Racing sponsored car for Carlin Racing.
Racing has always come naturally to RC as a previous team principal stated, “RC’s performance last year was nothing less than amazing. He is so calm behind the wheel and possesses car control beyond his years.”
