Biography of Parker Nicklin
Parker found his passion for racing at the ripe age of 3-years-old when his dad, Steve Nicklin, took him to the Long Beach Grand Prix. Parker loved the roar of the motors, the speed of the cars, the excitement of the paddock, the drivers and crews. Steve saw the zeal in Parker’s eyes at the Grand Prix, so he took Parker to a nearby toy store to buy him his first Razor electric go-kart. That very day Parker decided that he was going to be a race car driver.

At about 8-years-old, Parker began gas karting. At 14-years-old, Parker graduated to racing cars, including his own Spec Miata racecar. Parker gained experience by tirelessly training at Spring Mountain Motorsports Resort and Country Club, Danny McKeever’s Fast Lane Racing School at Willow Springs International Motorsports Park, and Thunder Hill Raceway, where he focused on the 25-hour endurance race and earned his first racing license.

At 15 years old, he moved into formula open-wheel cars with Skip Barber.  Parker won his first race at the Skip Barber Shoot Out and earned his second racing license. A few months later, Parker raced with SCCA in a D-Sport WF-1 Stohr at the Fontana Raceway. Here, he achieved his first podium with a 2nd place finish and his third racing license. Parker then became a member of the Skip Barber’s Summer Formula 2012 Race series, which allowed him to race in 20 races throughout seven states and Canada.

In August 2014, Parker made is INDYCAR Professional debut in the season-ending events at Sonoma Raceway.

Powered by determination, Nicklin Motorsports is preparing its team for the 2015 Indy Lights series and is excited about the opportunity to race the new high-tech Dallara race car. We will continue to add drivers in 2014 – 2015 to meet the needs of our sponsors and partners.
