Radical Indianapolis, under the leadership of NTT INDYCAR Series driver Graham Rahal and Team Manager Jeff Frederick, are excited to announce Jordan Missig and Kenny Naill to the team’s full-season 2024 Radical Cup North America driver lineup, with Nick d’Orlando joining the team in Sebring.  “I am incredibly excited to have Jordan and Kenny leading the team for our inaugural Radical Cup North America season, and to have Nick onboard in Sebring,” said Graham Rahal.  “With our state-of-the-art engineering and driver experience, I am confident we will be a competitive force this season.

Jordan Missig, 25, began his racing career with champion karting success, then making the transition from karts to the Radical Cup North America series in 2018-2019 where he secured 10 poles, 7 wins, and 13 podiums in 18 races.  In 2020-2021, with a desire to further hone his race craft and climb the open-wheel racing ladder, Jordan moved to Formula Regional Americas (Formula 3) where he secured 1 win, 7 podiums, and finished 10th in the championship with Newman Wachs Racing.  Concurrently, he took part in the IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series with Wayne Taylor Racing, securing 2 wins, 5 podiums, and finishing 3rd in the championship.  2021 also saw Jordan’s participation and victory in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill Championship.  Jordan signed with Pabst Racing for the 2022 & 2023 USF Pro 2000 Championship seasons, which led him to 2 podiums, 4 top 5 finishes, and 20 top ten finishes. Jordan is looking forward to further developing as a driver, and bringing success to Radical Indianapolis in the team’s inaugural Radical Cup North America season.

Kenny Naill, life-long car enthusiast, began his passion for cars and racing from a young age, with his first car being a 1966 Dodge Coronet that he rebuilt himself at the young age of 15.   Taking part in drag racing at a local Colorado drag strip sparked Kenny’s desire to take his passion to the race track.  He put his racing pursuits on a brief pause while he developed his business and grew his family.  His relationship with Graham Rahal Performance began in 2020, during which he participated in the summer track series, and became a loyal client.  In late 2023 Kenny was invited by Graham Rahal to take part in Graham Rahal Performance’s Radical Demo Day at NCM Motorsports Park.  Kenny took to the track in a Radical, and thoroughly enjoyed his time in the car.  Within months he was ready to take the leap and commit to the 2024 Radical Cup North America season with Radical Indianapolis.  Kenny is greatly looking forward to the season ahead and taking to the track in Sebring.

Nick d’Orlando, 20, will be joining the team in Sebring and is both excited and committed to helping the team kickoff the 2024 season with success.  Nick began his racing career at a young age in 2008 garnering multiple national and international karting championship honors over his 12-year career. He was also a factory driver for each of CompKart and Kart Republic karting manufacturers in the CIK FIA Karting Championship in Europe. His karting success was followed by two years gathering valuable experience and knowledge in developing his skills as a driver while supporting his brother Michael d’Orlando’s F4 US and USF2000 pursuits.  This time honing his craft saw Nick experience a dominant championship-winning season in the 2021 Formula Race Promotions F1600 series with Team Pelfrey, where he stood on the top step of the podium 12 times, secured 18 podium finishes, 4 pole positions, and 10 fastest laps in 24 races.  He remains the driver with the most victories in a single season in series history.  In 2022 Nicholas competed in the two opening weekends of the USF Juniors Presented by Cooper Tires Championship, where he secured 3 top 10 finishes in 3 starts.  Nicholas also contested a partial rookie season in the USF2000 Presented by Cooper Tires Championship, where he claimed 4 top 10 finishes, and 1 fastest lap.

The 2024 Radical Cup North America Season will begin at Sebring International Raceway for Round 1 of the Championship on March 1st-March 3rd.  Stay tuned to our social channels (Instagram: @radical_indianapolis) and https://radicalindianapolis.com/ for updates.
