AJ Zarcone

AJ began racing at 6 years old in go karts.  After a successful karting career where he won multiple championships across a variety of classes, AJ made the move to Spec Miata.  

AJ found his comfort in the middle of his first season and began competing for wins mid season,  earning a nomination for the MX-5 Cup Shootout.  Now 15 years old, AJ is racing in the Spec MX-5 Challenge where he set the track record for Spec MX-5 at Willow Springs in his first race.

While not racing cars, AJ is a freshman in high school and is an honors student and plays varsity football.  


Wyatt Couch

He has been racing Spec Miata for 2 years, finishing the 2019 race season in 2nd Place,  Teen Mazda Challenge and 4th Place in the NASA Regional Championships. Wyatt has had successful wins in the SCCA races and was a volunteer group leader for NASA Teen Car Control Clinic.

We welcome Wyatt and look forward to seeing some great racing from this young race star!


Kirk Haag

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Kirk is following in the footsteps of his dad and granddad. He has been surrounded by race cars since he was a toddler so it's only natural to see him behind the wheel. Kirk received his NASA & SCCA Racing Licenses in 2003 and started out in a 1st gen Mazda RX7. He moved on to racing the shop's RX8 in 2019 at the Lucky Dog Race at Thunderhill and has raced in several Lucky Dog races. We expect to see great things from Kirk and are so proud of him!


Andrew Peeler

You could say that Andrew was born to be a race car driver! From the age of 3 Andrew could be found driving his hot wheels cars on custom made tracks while watching NASCAR on the tv! Andrew has an incredible portfolio of wins and racing achievements in his 23 years. Things are only looking up for this gifted racer!


Taylor Cason

Taylor is a 16 year old Chinese-American driver and the third generation racer in her family. She has driven off road vehicles from ages 9 to 11 in all different kinds of conditions. She has raced karts from ages 12 to 15 and has never finished less than 4th Place in 2021. She has since then transitioned to cars and worked for a team at 25 Hours of Thunderhill in 2021 where she gained considerable track knowledge. We look forward to working with Taylor as she climbs the racing ladder!
