NICK SANCHEZ

I was born and raised in Miami, FL in a Latin/American home with my parents and my two younger sisters. Growing up, my father had a construction company and I loved riding on his construction equipment - excavators, backhoes, and bobcats. That began my love for anything with wheels. From the time I was 2, I could always be found driving around our backyard in either a ride-on power wheel, ATV, or a dune buggy. That started my love for driving. When I was 5, my great uncle gave us tickets to a NASCAR truck race at Homestead-Miami Speedway and I was hooked on racing.

At the age of 6, I went onto competing at my local BMX track which was the closest thing to racing something with wheels. The following year when I was 7, my parents enrolled me in a tackle football team because of my mother’s love for the sport. I played on that team for 5 years. Although during my last 2 years, I knew I wanted to race cars of some sort. And after begging my parents to allow me to get into racing, they finally found a local go-karting team that I could join. When I was 12, I began competing in go-kart races around Florida and continued for the next 3.5 years. I raced on multiple national circuits including Rok Cup USA and The Florida Winter Tour. My home track and where I practiced weekly was the karting track on the grounds outside of Homestead-Miami Speedway. I always looked up to the big track and said I hoped to race there someday in NASCAR.

In 2017, right after my 16th birthday, I earned a coveted spot on Rev Racing, the NASCAR diversity team. That summer, I competed in the Bojangles Summer Shootout at the Charlotte Motor Speedway racing legend cars. I came in 5th in the overall championship.

The following year, I competed in the Rev Racing combine and got signed to drive late models in the Whelen All American Series which I raced for 2 seasons. I compiled multiple wins and poles. I am beginning my fourth consecutive season with Rev Racing and currently competing in the ARCA Menards series full-time in 2021.
