Today marks the five year anniversary of the first race that the MAKE Motorsports organization qualified for their first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Nashville Superspeedway. The No. 50 entered and qualified for that race in 2010 marking the inception of the family owned and ran team.
MAKE Motorsports is owned by Mark Beaver and Tracy Lowe. The team started with one truck that is famously known as “Porky”. This truck is still in the MAKE chassis fleet having last raced a week ago at Martinsville Speedway. This truck is the reason that all of MAKE’s chassis are named after pigs. Since then MAKE has added four more trucks and three Xfinity cars to their fleet.
Tracy Lowe, Co-Owner of MAKE stated: “It’s hard to believe that we have been in the sport for 5 years. It hasn’t been easy but it has been worth it. I’m proud to say that we have made it through the tough times. We have seen other teams come and go but we just keep trying our best to put the package together to get to the track every weekend.”
Since their inception, MAKE Motorsports has attempted nearly 100 races with multiple drivers across the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series. They have run a full season in 2014 and expanded to a two-truck team in 2015.
