A shining light at the track

An interview with race car driver Doug Jenkins

Doug Jenkins got interested in car racing while hanging around tracks as a kid in northern California. By age sixteen, he was working in the pit for his stepbrother, who was a stock car driver. Jenkins moved with his wife to Alaska after college, and living near a track in Fairbanks rekindled his passion for racing. Jenkins was one of the top drivers in Alaska before moving to St. Louis, where he currently owns a car restoration business and races stock and sprint cars throughout the Midwest. Rick Lipsey, a reporter at Sports Illustrated, spoke with Jenkins about the influence Christian Science has had on his racing career.
