Bookstore Basketball was different for Jimmy Small ’08.
Small took a love of the sport—he turned down scholarship offers at Division II and III schools to attend Notre Dame—and applied it to his obligations as a member of the tournament’s executive council, work that ultimately led to him landing a job after graduation at NASCAR.
His sports marketing career has taken off. In 2012, SportsPro Magazine named Small one of 10 top sports executives under the age of 30. And in December, Small was appointed president of Iowa Speedway, a racetrack purchased by NASCAR last year. At 28, he is believed to be the youngest president of a major racing facility in the nation.
