Skip Barber Racing School is proud to announce that Jaxon Bell will compete full-time in the 2023 Skip Barber Formula Race Series season. With his limited, but impressive racing experience, Bell is looking to be a championship contender this season.
The 19-year-old California native has only completed one full race weekend to date at the 2022 season finale at Circuit of The Americas but showed impressive results finishing on the podium with last year’s champion Elvis Rankin and championship contender Jeshua Alianell in both races. Jaxon is the son of former IndyCar driver, and current NBC broadcast analyst, and Skip Barber brand ambassador Townsend Bell.
“I chose Skip Barber as the starting point for my racing journey because they have the best reputation for success in the industry,” Bell said. “The goal for this season is to win the Skip Barber Race Series Championship and climb the USF Pro Championships ladder to one day compete in IndyCar and win the Indianapolis 500.”
The Skip Barber Formula Race Series is set to take the green flag across eight legendary racing venues across the United States. Bell is excited to make his debut laps at all the tracks in the series calendar, but mostly looking forward to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
“I’m looking forward to WeatherTech Laguna Seca the most because of the elevation change and the new track surface,” Bell said. “The new track surface will generate a lot of grip and make for some exciting racing.”
