There is no blueprint to reaching the top in the intense world of elite-level professional motorsports. No road map to quick and easy success.

But there are common building blocks in every successful race team. Hard work. Focus. Passion.

And those who reach the pinnacle almost always add an extra ingredient: Class.

Jeff Mark is combining polished elegance with a successful background as an entrepreneur to build Jeffrey Mark Motorsport into a first-class North American open-wheel racing team.

The team debuted in Firestone Indy Lights in 2012, the final step before the IZOD IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500.

Competing at the highest level always has been a dream for Indianapolis native Jeff Mark since he first attended the Indianapolis 500 as a child. But once team ownership became his goal, Jeff knew he wanted to reach victory lane with sophisticated elegance and style while keeping an infernal competitive spirit.

That dream is now reality. Every aspect of the team is created and presented with devotion to detail. Race cars are prepared with exacting precision. Garage areas and sponsor hospitality areas are pristine, with a uniform look of class throughout.

But don’t think for a second that the sheen of Jeffrey Mark Motorsport reflects the image of a cold, clinical group. Hardly. This team burns with the passion of individuals united to fuse dreams and goals into success.

That warmth starts with team owner Jeff. He believes friendship and competition are interwoven hallmarks of any winning team. He’s as quick with a smile and a handshake with fans and sponsors as he is with keeping a riveting focus on every aspect of his team.

Jeffrey Mark Motorsport is a small team with big plans. It’s going places… Fast.

Jeffrey Mark Motorsport runs the #76 car in the Firestone Indy Lights series.  Headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, JMM competed in its inaugural season in 2012 with Juan Pablo Garcia behind the wheel.
