Wilkinson and Bill McAnally Drivers Academy
“JoJo” had her first contact with Bill after the Snowball Derby at Pensacola two years ago.
Bill reached out to her with Jack Irving of Toyota Racing Development.
Their goal is to prepare her for the 625 hp stock cars.
In Jolynn “JoJo” Wilkinson words,
“They have excellent equipment, and I am learning another side of racing.
I’ve grown and matured more in the past 5 months than ever before.”
Jolynn Wilkinson and the “Alabama Gang”
When you think about Hueytown, you think about the many legendary Allison’s; Davey Allison, Bobbie Allison, Donnie Allison, etc. As the third-generation racer in her family, she wants to continue with the Hueytown legacy.
She is the daughter of John “Boy” Wilkinson, a former NASCAR driver who also started his career at the seat of an ARCA car.
“I’ve learned a lot from Bobbie Allison and Red Farmer; they taught me everything that they know.
I don’t think anybody really understands what they did as a group together.
And I feel a lot of pressure to be able to be behind those names.” JoJo says.
Jolynn Wilkinson and Her Support System
In 2019, she suffered an accident at the Five Flags Speedway, where she broke her leg.
That summer was really tough for her, but with the support of her family, she returned stronger than ever.
“All I got is my family; they went through all I went through.
They are my support system,” reflected JoJo.
Her sister Alyssa helps her with her Facebook page and Twitter, and she runs her Instagram profile.
Lastly, “I can’t thank Anthony Miriani from Instacoat Premium Products enough,” Jolynn Wilkinson said,
“They’ve been beside me this entire journey, and I’m thankful for them.”
Wilkinson has accumulated more than ten starts in the BMR Drivers Academy so far.
