Jackie Mitchel

Founding Board

I started riding mini-bikes at age 10 and racing at 11 years old. I turned pro in 1975 at age 16 and raced professionally until 1982. After racing I attended Indiana University and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the motorcycle industry. I was a founding member of AXO Sport America, a leader in the off-road racing apparel market. I have been involved in the retail automotive business for the last 31 years and reside in Greensburg, IN. I am a founding member of the Rookies of 79 Charity and sit on its board of directors. Motorcycle racing gave me many opportunities to grow personally and professionally. The Charity has been a great way for me to reconnect with the sport and pay it forward for those in need. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of.
