Tony Jackson, with the support of car-owner Scott Hess and Hess Motorsports, is proud to announce that he’ll be making the transition from Super Sportsman competition to 410 Sprint Car racing in 2024. This decision marks a significant step forward in his career and sets the stage for an exciting new chapter in his already impressive journey.
“We’ve been kicking it around now for a little bit and we just decided that now is the right time to make the move,” said Jackson. “I know it’s going to be a challenge, but I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead of us and seeing what we can do.”
The current plan is to tentatively run around 40 races next season, with a focus on special events at BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway on Friday nights and Port Royal Speedway on Saturdays.
“We’ll start with places I’m comfortable at and just try and gain as much experience as possible,” said Jackson. “We’ve got a few possible cards on the table that could open things up a lot more next season, but right now this is the plan.”
“We’ve talked about possibly going out to Western PA a little bit as well, but really we’re just going into things with an open mind and we’ll see where it takes us,” he added.
With an impressive track record in the Super Sportsman series, Jackson has consistently demonstrated exceptional talent, determination, and an unwavering passion for the sport. Over the years, he has carved a name for himself as a formidable force, capturing the attention of fans, competitors, and sponsors alike.
Jackson teamed up with Hess a few years ago in the Sportsman division and the wins have come in bunches. No stranger to the Sprint Car game as a longtime crew chief, owner and sponsor, Hess believes Jackson has the talent capable of not only making the jump to 410 Sprint Car racing, but to compete and challenge for wins.
“We’re really excited about building this team and we’re excited to get going,” said Hess. “I really believe Tony has the ability to win races at the next level and we’re excited to give him the opportunity to make his dream a reality.”
The decision to transition to the intense and highly competitive world of 410 Sprint Car racing in Central Pennsylvania represents Jackson’s commitment to pushing his limits and pursuing excellence in the sport. The move is driven by a burning desire to challenge himself further, test his skills against the best in the business, and chase the ultimate glory of victory at the highest level.
He’s also looking forward to continuing his family’s legacy, as his father Larry Jackson was a force to be reckoned with for decades in the Sportsman and 410 Sprint Car ranks.
“As a kid growing up at Silver Springs and watching my dad be as successful as he was, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t dream of winning races and racing too,” said Jackson. “He’s a well-known name in this area and being able to represent that legacy against the best in the business is something I’m really proud of and don’t take lightly.”
The team will utilize Maxim Chassis and a combination of Rider and Godfrey Racing Engines. Sponsors include Truck Specialties, Machining America, McCoy Brothers, Interstate Garage Doors, Family Ford, Custom Cut Floorings, Hess Iron, Donnie Reeser, Ken Brown Racing, Piper Advertising, K&H Suspension, Dellinger’s Auto Body, and Chamberlin and Wingert Sanitary Services.
The team’s sponsors, whose support has been instrumental in making this transition possible, are equally thrilled about the upcoming season. Their continued commitment and investment in Jackson demonstrate their belief in his talent and the potential for success in the fiercely competitive world of Central PA 410 Sprint Car racing.
“It means so much to me that Scott, his wife Lori, and my sponsors have the confidence in me to make all this possible,” said Jackson. “None of these people must do this and the only reason they are is because they believe I can do it and do it well. We’re working hard to build this team the right way and I’m looking forward to representing them at the track next season.”
