George Mack (born July 21, 1978 in Hollywood, California) is a former Indy Racing League driver. He is the older brother of Indy Pro Series and short track racer Lloyd Mack. Mack was the second African-American after Willy T. Ribbs to drive in the Indianapolis 500 when he did so in 2002 and finished 17th. He contested the rest IRL season for 310 Racing and finished 16th in series points with a best finish of 13th. After being unable to find a ride in open wheel cars after 310 Racing folded, he shifted his focus to NASCAR and was named the 3rd driver of the Curry Racing entry in the Truck Series in early 2006, possibly as a part of the Drive for Diversity program. However, Mack denied association with Curry Racing stating that he was not contracted and/or scheduled to drive for Curry Racing.

Na corrida, um problema de marchas encerrou a participação de Mack, que teve como melhor resultado dois 13ºs lugares, em Miami e Pikes Peak, fechando o campeonato em 16º, com 184 pontos marcados. Sem chances de continuar na IRL para 2003, o piloto mudou seu foco para a NASCAR, e chegou a ter sua participação na Truck Series cogitada, para defender a Curry Racing, informação negada pelo próprio. Fora das pistas, chegou a participar do reality-show "Blind Date", onde namorou uma garota conhecida por "Q", numa referência ao célebre personagem James Bond.
