Intensive Professional Training

Schedule Overview

In our unique Scholarship Shootout Presented By Cooper Tires, drivers will receive training on essential topics related to becoming a professional race car driver.

Becoming a professional driver isn’t just about being fast on-track – what happens off-track can be as instrumental to success as what you’re able to do in the car. 

Off-track, participants will receive:

  • Media training with on-camera interviews
  • Business lessons with tips for how to find sponsorship and build budget
  • Social media management and guidance
  • Simulation training
  • Fitness training
  • Parents-only Seminar – How to Be a Motorsports Parent

On-track, participants will have five separate lapping sessions to demonstrate all the skills they have developed and why they deserve to be our Scholarship Shootout Winner.


A Tale of Two Champions

A Perfect Pairing

Shootout Winners. Series Champions. Road to Indy Drivers.

Our 2018 Shootout Winner, Prescott Campbell, and our 2019 Winner, Ely Navarro, have quite a bit in common. Both of course won our Scholarship Shootout. Both would subsequently go on to claim the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series in their first year. Both would claim the series scholarship to enter the Road to Indy USF2000 series. And fittingly the two are now teammates for the 2021 season with DEForce Racing.

The pair illustrate just how powerful and transformative the Lucas Oil Scholarship Shootout is for aspiring professional race car drivers. It’s not just the shootout winners that benefit from the education that comes from the Scholarship Shootout program. Many of our participants have taken the invaluable education they received from our program and used what they learned to propel them to the Road to Indy and other professional driving championships. And that is what all of our participants have in common – an unmatched learning opportunity that will serve them throughout their motorsports career.
