Jagger Jones and Cape Motorsports have announced that they are continuing their partnership for the 2023 Indy Lights season.

The Cape brothers recently announced a move to Indy Lights from USF2000 for the 2023 season. Jones will be making the move from the first to the third step of the Road to Indy with the Cape brothers.

“We’re happy to head back to Indy Lights with Jagger,” said brothers Dominic and Nicholas Cape in a team statement. “He’s fast, and he’s shown what a solid driver he is with his performance in USF2000 this year. He learned the tracks and the car so quickly and we don’t expect next year to be any different. Continuity is so important for our team, and bringing Jagger along makes much of this quite seamless – he gets along with the entire team and fits in so well. We’re ready to get started on 2023.”

Jones won one race at Barber Motorsports Park early in the 2022 season. That win combined with seven other top-five finishes to place the Arizona native fourth in USF2000 points. Jones was the top rookie in USF2000 for 2022 and is the grandson of 1963 Indianapolis 500 winner Parnelli Jones.

“I’m super happy to continue progressing in my Road to Indy career,” said Jones in a team release. “This is a great opportunity to move up to Indy Lights with Cape Motorsports. I’ve had such a good year learning from everyone on the USF2000 team, so once Cape announced they were moving to Indy Lights, I knew it was my chance to continue my development with them. Dominic and Nicholas are completely committed to winning at every level. It will be a new challenge for me and for Cape, but I know with our dedication, we’ll be fighting for podiums and wins next year.”

The Cape brothers won the 2022 USF2000 championship with driver Michael d’Orlando. Their second driver for Indy Lights has yet to be announced.
