Bio:

This will be Nate’s ninth full season competing at Knoxville. Each year, he has improved or maintained in the standings, and the past two years, he has finished a career-best third in points. His first Knoxville 360 win came in 2011 and he added two more in 2012 and one last season. Nate was the “Junior Fan Club Driver of the Year” in 2010, and was named “Most Improved” in the 360 class after the 2011 season.

Before getting into the sprint cars, Nate’s success in go-karts included consecutive point championships at the Newton Kart Klub in Open Kage Kart and Junior Kage Kart classes. He also took multiple IKF season point championships and recorded multiple runner-up finishes in IKF and KART Nationals events.
