Elliot Cox, number 51, is a kart racer from Indianapolis, Indiana. Elliot's dream is to become the youngest winner of the Indy 500.
Elliot began driving as soon as he turned five, in the fall of 2012. His grandfather took him to buy his first kart, and from the time his foot touched the pedal, he was hooked.
Elliot had his first win at New Castle Motorsports Park at the age of five, and he was named Rookie of the Year for the Tony Stewart Racing League at Whiteland Raceway Park that year.
The following year, Elliot was the first Kid Kart driver to win a Manufacturer’s Cup national race for points, sweeping the weekend in Kershaw. He finished the year as national runner-up and local champion.
Elliot continued to find success in his micro career. In 2016, he was the Yamaha Rookie class champion for the Route 66 Sprint Series. He also finished 3rd in the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour championship and 2nd in the United States Pro Kart Series Yamaha Rookie points. Elliot was the 2017 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Champion for the Micro Swift class, as well as the Yamaha Jr. Sportsman 2 class champion at New Castle Motorsports park.
Off the track, Elliot is an honor roll student at Gray Road Christian School. He races to raise awareness for Alex’s Lemonade Stand and the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana. In 2014, Elliot hosted a lemonade stand at the Graham Rahal Foundation Drivers Golf Tournament, where he raised over $1,500 for childhood cancer research. In the last 3 years Elliot has raised over $8,500 for childhood cancer research! Elliot has participated in Dyslexia awareness campaigns and radio ads with the late Justin Wilson, who was Elliot's hero, Scott Dixon, and Stefan Wilson.
He proudly sports a sticker on both his kart and race trailer for the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana to raise awareness for kids with Dyslexia, just like him. Elliot has helped raise over $13,000 for the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana.
