Shelby Blackstock’s dream of being a professional driver began to take shape in January 2010 when he attended the highly-touted Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Racing, quickly turning heads during the four days of classes. Blackstock competed in the Skip Barber Summer Series, Formula Ford 1600 and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge before joining the Mazda Road to Indy in 2012.
Blackstock is the son of country legend Reba McEntire.
