No one has ever tried to enter NASCAR from the Navy until now.
Lt. Jesse Iwuji discovered his love for racing while stationed in San Diego as a surface warfare officer (SWO) in the Navy.
Iwuji graduated from the Naval Academy where he played Division I college football. After graduation, Iwuji was commissioned as a SWO and embarked on his Navy journey. In May 2017, Iwuji made the decision to transition into the Navy Reserve so he could pursue a racing career full-time.
