My love for racing...
I was born and raised in Miami, FL in a Cuban-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 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 and of course was a Miami Hurricanes and Miami Dolphins fan.
During my last 2 years of playing football, 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 at 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. After a
successful rookie season in the ARCA Menards Series East, I competed full-time in the 2021 ARCA Menards Series for a fourth consecutive season with Rev
Racing, gaining my first win in the series at Kansas Speedway.
I continued racing full-time in the ARCA Menards Series in 2022, taking home the Championship with victories at Kansas, Talladega, and Michigan.
In 2022, I also made my NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Phoenix Raceway, and raced part-time for Big Machine Racing.
In 2023, I will begin my rookie season in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, piloting the No. 2, Gainbridge Chevrolet with a technical partner, Kyle Busch
