2014/2015 Trans-Am Champion ACCELERATING INTO THE CURVES!

Welcome to the official page of Pro Racer Ernie Francis Jr.

The Official Page for Professional Race Car Driver Ernie Francis, Jr.

Ernie Francis, Jr. was born and raised in South Florida. His father, Ernie Francis, was a race car driver, and as a result, Ernie has been around racing his entire life. In 2011, at age 13, Ernie made the move from karts to cars, piloting his Spec Miata to 18 Top Ten finishes, 10 Top Five finishes, 6 Podium appearances and 2 Wins from 18 races. In 2012, while 14 years old, he again demonstrated his tremendous talent by winning championships in both NASA (National Auto Sport Association) and FARA (Formula Automobile Racing Association). Of 34 races, Ernie grabbed 32 Top Ten finishes, 26 Top Five finishes, 25 Podium appearances and 21 Wins.

In 2013, upon turning 15 years old, Ernie Francis Jr. became the youngest, licensed, professional driver competing in the Pirelli World Challenge Championships. Ernie captured top honors as “Rookie of The Year” with numerous podium appearances and winning a total of 7 races; more wins than any other driver in any class. Ernie Francis, Jr. finished the season in Third Place in the TCB class with the proud support of his partners – Festivals of Speed, Breathless Performance Products, Racequip, Bullseye Powder Coating and Florida Lithographix.

2014 saw Ernie Francis, Jr. racing in the Pirelli World Challenge in TCA with a Mazda MX-5 and the Trans Am Series in TA3-A driving a Camaro GTS. Again, Ernie dominated. He had 11 podiums out of 14 races in TCA and took home 3rd in the championship.

In Trans Am, Ernie made it to the podium 9 times out of 11 races. He won on 6 of those occasions and became the youngest driver ever to claim the title of “Trans Am Champion”. Ernie could not have done so well this past year without the help of his partners – some of which included The Brain Injury Association, Breathless Performance, Racequip and CoolShirt.

2015 has Ernie racing again in Trans Am and in World Challenge. Now he has moved up to the competitive TC class in World Challenge. Ernie continued to show speed in both classes. Qualifying on pole for all 12 Trans Am races. Ernie Francis Jr ended the Trans Am season with 9 wins and a 2nd Championship. Ernie took on the World Challenge TC class as well. Winning 4 races and finishing 2nd in the championship by 6 points even while missing 4 races.

Ernie has made the switch to a Ford Mustang Boss 302R for the 2016 Trans Am season. Ernie will also be taking on a new challenge as he will be running multiple World Challenge GTS races in his Mustang. Ernie will still be racing select TC races as well. This season Ernie will also be running several races with ANSA Motorsports in their Audi R8 LMS. Ernie hopes to use this year to get more rides in a vast amount of cars and series. Stay tuned to follow Ernie as he drives to reach his goals in the sports car world.
