To commemorate 30 years of accelerating cancer research, the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center has joined formula car driver Jackson Lee as the primary sponsor on his No. 2 Cape Motorsports entry in the 2022 Cooper Tires USF2000 championship series.

Jackson Lee knows that research cures cancer. He hopes by racing with the IU logo on his car during the 2022 season, he can raise awareness of the center’s research accomplishments that have benefited countless people over the last three decades.

In honor of the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center’s 30th anniversary, please make a gift that can be used to support IU cancer research.

More about the partnership:

Jackson is a 19-year-old IUPUI freshman from Avon, Indiana studying motorsports engineering. Like too many others, Jackson’s family has been impacted by cancer, as he lost his grandfather to lung cancer nearly two decades ago. “I’ve enjoyed learning about the progress being made in cancer research and treatment, but there is much more that can be done," Jackson said. "I’m excited to help in any way I can to encourage donations for research, raise awareness about the availability of the best treatment here in Central Indiana and to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the cancer center."

"We are excited to support Jackson and his team as there are many parallels between racing a car and racing to save lives,” Kelvin Lee, MD, cancer center director, explained. “When you watch a race team compete, you see the precision, determination and the science behind the sport. That’s a lot like cancer research and care.
