Jim Crawford (February 13, 1948 in Dunfermline, Fife – August 6, 2002 in Tierra Verde, Florida, United States) was a Scottish racing driver. He participated in two World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on July 19, 1975. He was also the winner of the 1982 British Formula One Championship.
Crawford moved to the United States in the 1980s and began a career in Champ Cars. In 1987, he suffered a devastating accident during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500, which left his feet and ankles badly injured. Crawford would return a year later to lead eight laps of the 1988 Indianapolis 500, eventually to finish 6th.
After retirement from racing, Crawford settled with his family in St. Petersburg, Florida working as a fishing boat captain. He died in 2002 of liver failure.
