More on the Collin Jackson's 2017 SCCA accomplishment

The SCCA Road Racing Super Sweep is the most challenging award a Club racer can achieve. To earn the honor a driver must, in a single class, win a U.S. Majors Tour Conference Championship, win the class Hoosier Super Tour point standings, and win at the National Championship Runoffs. This year, three talented drivers managed to achieve the elusive Super Sweep – the first Super Sweep for each racer.

Collin Jackson had a dominant season driving his No. 53 Specialty Engineering/BM&M Screen Nissan 240SX in the GT-3 class. He was unbeatable in the U.S. Majors Tour Western Conference Championship with weekend sweeps at Thunderhill Raceway Park, Buttonwillow Raceway Park and Portland International Raceway. The wins at Buttonwillow and Portland also gave him the Hoosier Super Tour Point Championship in the class. And to top it off, Jackson took the GT-3 Tire Rack Pole Award at Indianapolis and went on to claim victory at the Runoffs, thus earning his Super Sweep accolade.
