About Our Race Cars
From Scholarship Winner to Lucas Oil Formula Car Race Series Winner to USF2000
Prescott Campbell started exactly where you are now. An exciting driver that had yet to make the migration from karts to cars, and looked to the inaugural Scholarship Shootout to get his start.
Impressing the judges throughout the Shootout competition, Campbell would go on to win the series earning him a full boat season with the Lucas Oil Formula Car Race Series in 2019.
Winning the Driver's Championship in 2019, Campbell also took the grand prize scholarship of $75,000 to move up to USF2000, further proving that the Road to Indy really does start here.
