Jack Hawksworth started racing go-karts at the age of 13 in the UK. After winning the British Kartmasters Championship in 2010, he moved to the Formula Renault UK Championship where he won at Croft and scored multiple podiums.
Hawksworth moved to the U.S. in 2012 to try his hand at the Mazda Road to Indy ladder in the Pro Mazda series. In his rookie year, he shattered series records for the most wins and poles in a single season. With the Mazda Road to Indy scholarship, Hawksworth made his Indy Lights debut in 2013 with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. He won three races and finished fourth in the championship. He joined Bryan Herta Autosport for the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season and was the recipient of the Tony Renna Rising Star Award. He joined A.J. Foyt Racing for the 2015 season.
Away from the track, Hawksworth likes to keep busy by running and playing soccer or tennis.
A.J. Foyt, the first four-time winner of the Indianapolis 500, founded A.J. Foyt Enterprises, a race shop based in Waller, Texas, in 1965.
Foyt has won more Indianapolis-style championship races (67) than any driver in history. He has a record seven national Indy-style driving championship titles to his name and a total of 12 major driving championships in various categories.
Foyt has raced everything from midgets to stock cars. He won the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1967 and the Daytona 500 in 1972. He is the only driver to win those two events along with the Indianapolis 500, which he won in 1961, 1964, 1967 and 1977. He was the inaugural inductee into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1989.
Foyt retired from driving Indy cars in 1993 to concentrate his efforts on team ownership but returned to the driver's seat at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1994 to compete in the inaugural Brickyard 400 NASCAR race.
Foyt earned his first Indianapolis 500 victory solely as a car owner with driver Kenny Brack in 1999. Foyt's team won IndyCar Series titles in 1996 and 1998. His son, Larry, is the team director.
