Scott Heckert (born November 21, 1993) is an American professional racing driver. He has driven in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Xfinity Series and Blancpain GT World Challenge America.

Racing career[edit]

K&N Pro Series East[edit]

Heckert's first season in the series, 2013, saw him log only two top ten finishes for team owner B. J. McLeod. However, Heckert mostly stayed out of trouble, retiring because of a crash only once.[1] In 2014, he switched to Turner Scott Motorsports, where he grabbed three poles and two wins, both at road courses.[2][3] In 2015, Heckert moved to HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks, he recorded another two wins, as many poles, and was in contention for the series championship in the final race.[4][5]

Xfinity Series[edit]

Heckert's 2016 car at Road America

Heckert debuted in 2016 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where he finished twenty sixth, driving for B. J. McLeod Motorsports. Three races later at Watkins Glen International, he recorded his first top twenty finish with a sixteenth.[6] Running another road course race at Road America, Heckert was running inside the top 20 until contact with James Davison in the final corner of the race relegated him to 29th.[7] Two years later, Heckert returned to the B.J. McLeod Motorsports seat and was behind the wheel at the Chicagoland Speedway, Watkins Glen International and Road America rounds respectively.

Sports cars[edit]

In 2016, Heckert made the move to the Pirelli World Challenge, crediting simulators such as iRacing for a quick transition from stock cars, which included podium results early on.[8] By the end of the 2016 season, Heckert had collected multiple victories in the GTS class.[9] Heckert found overall victory at Virginia International Raceway in 2018 with Lone Star Racing and co-driver Mike Skeen in what was then named the Blancpain GT World Challenge America.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Heckert is a graduate of Miami University, holding a degree in mechanical engineering.[11]
