    About Jim Swintal

    Jim began his motorsports art career in
    1991. Previously, he was a Chicago
    Architect for a dozen years after
    graduating in 1979 from the University
    of Notre Dame.

    At the track, Jim is a member of the Race
    Control staffs of both the IndyCar Series
    and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar
    Championship. He began his involvement
    in 1980 as a volunteer corner marshal,
    became the Starter for the American
    Racing Series, and in 1993, succeeded
    the late Nick Fornoro as the Starter for
    the Champ Car World Series. In 2003, he
    moved to Race Control, and served as
    the series' Clerk of the Course,
    supervising the activities of the volunteer
    Marshals that staff the signaling posts
    around the circuit.

    Jim's art  has been commissioned by a
    variety of motorsports events, racing
    teams and individual enthusiasts.
    His work has been used in Lithographs,
    Team Press Kits, Event Programs and
    Posters, Season-ending Awards
    and Holiday Cards.
"That was pretty cool. It was
a very nice tribute to the way
things used to be in racing. A
real throwback… and Swintal
did a good job too. Not only
did it look really good, but he
avoided getting killed."
- Paul Tracy, after winning the
2003 Tecate/Telmex GP in
Mexico City
STILL RACING...

Jim spent another 150+ days on the
road last year, working in Race
Control for both the Verizon
IndyCar Series and the IMSA
WeatherTech Championship. Aside
from a few private commissions,
time on the drawing board has been
largely taken up creating the
Championship sketches and
paintings for  IMSA's GT3 USA, GT3
Canada and Mazda Lites Series
along with the three Mazda Road to
Indy Champions from Indy Lights,
Pro Mazda and USF2000.
