Danny Jackson was recognized as the CD-2 "Rookie of the Year" Saturday, January 6, during the Champion Racing Association (CRA) Awards Banquet in Anderson, Ind.

Jackson, a 23-year-old third generation race car driver from Cincinnati, Ohio, won the award based on his accomplishments during the 2006 CRA Super Series Late Model season, in which he finished 5th place in the point standings. The next closest rookie was ranked 10th.

"This award really means a lot to me," said Jackson. "Not only does it reward my entire team for the things we've accomplished this season, but serves as good motivation for me to continually improve as a racer."

Some of Jackson's accomplishments during the 2006 season include: seven top ten finishes, 13 top twenty finishes, one No. 1 qualifier. He accumulated the second highest ranking in the "percentage of laps completed" category at 87.8 percent for the season. During the final race of the year, he set the Winchester Speedway record with a lap-time of 15.192 seconds.

Jackson recently announced he will race in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup during the 2007 season. In December, the team purchased a Pro Cup car formerly driven by Johnny Rumley, a veteran who's won multiple USAR and NASCAR Busch Series races.

"The CRA Series was a major stepping stone for me and I hope to use all that knowledge and experience we gained and take it to the Pro Cup," Jackson said. "We'll have some major challenges in 2007. The Pro Cup drivers are some of the toughest around. And while I'll never underestimate and opponent, I plan on winning some races and finishing in the top five in the point standings this year."

The team plans to attend the eight Northern Division events: April 14, South Boston, Va.; May 3, Shenandoah, Va.; May 26, Madison, Wisc.; June 9, Mansfield, Ohio; June 30, Salem, Ind.; July 14, Radford, Va.; July 28, North East, Pa.; and August 11, South Boston, Va. In addition, the team is tentatively scheduled to attend the first Pro Cup event of the 2007 season, Saturday, March 10, at USA International Speedway in Lakeland, Fla.

The Pro Cup season concludes with five Championship Series events. Jackson would like to attend all of these races, pending sponsorship funding.

The USAR Hooters Pro Cup series is a short, circle track stock car series, consisting of both experienced pro racers and young drivers trying to make a name for themselves. The races are broadcast on SPEED, offering a great television package and incentive for sponsors with a regional or national audience.

In addition to this season's CRA "Rookie of the Year" moniker, Jackson has amassed several achievements in a short time. He received the 2005 ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series "Rookie of the Year" honor, winning once on the series that year in Middlebourne, W.Va. He was the 2005 Legends Car Pro Asphalt National Champion. In 2006, he added two more ARCA Truck victories, winning at Winchester (Indiana) Speedway and Kentucky Speedway.
