2006 SVRA Driver of the Year: Jack Cassinghan


Jack Cassinghan – Sherrills Ford, NC

“I got hooked on vintage racing after attending a Skip Barber Racing School in 1988 with formula Fords and then co-driving with a friend in his Morris Minor with SVRA. I bought a 1966 basket case MG Midget and built it to race with SVRA, HSR and VDCA. I have had the pleasure of racing at Bridgehampton, Roebling Road, Sebring, Summit Point, Road America, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Hallet, VIR, Barber, New Jersey, Lime Rock, and South Carolina race tracks. I attended driving school at Road Atlanta in a Nissan 300z and then was a co-driver in the 1999 SCCA 24- hour race at Moroso in the same car.”

“Through the years I have raced my MG Midget as well as co-driven in Morris Minor, Mini Cooper, Formula Fords, BMW 2002, MGB, Triumph spitfire and Nissan 300Z.”

“I started Vintage racing in 1996 and was ‘Most Improved Driver of the Year’ in 1998 and ‘Driver of the Year’ with SVRA in 2006. The people and the racing are the best, and I hope to continue to enjoy this sport.”
