Levi Jones may well be one of the most prolific USAC (United States Auto Club) sprint car drivers of our time. He is the only five-time USAC Sprint Car and two-time Silver Crown champion. In 2010 and 2011, Jones won both the non wing sprint car and the silver crown championships. He has also competed in USAC Midget competition with success.

In 1998, at the age of 16, Levi began his career in modified midgets and made the jump to full size sprint cars.

In 2012, Levi was leading the TRAXXS Silver Crown points and in the top five of AMSOIL Non Wing Sprint car points when a neck injury, which required surgery, forced him to end his season early.

Levi is a full-time Tony Stewart Racing Silver Crown driver for the 2013 season. He has driven for TSR since 2006.

Jones reached out of his normal comfort zone in Haubstadt, Indiana at the Tri-State Speedway on April 20 when he climbed in the Winged Sprint car entry of Jack Rodgers Racing with the World of Outlaws. Levi qualified 30th and finished seventh in his heat. He was running in the top 3 when a spin relegated him to a ninth place finishing position in the Last Chance Show Down, ending his night.
