About Blake: Blake Lothian is a 21-year-old race car driver hailing from Wellesley, Massachusetts.

Last year, he debuted in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia. But Blake’s passion for all things fast started at a much younger age.

At 15, he was competing and winning against adults in high-performance go-karting at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

There, he ran away with a regional New Hampshire Championship. That caught the eye of NASCAR, and at 17, he was invited to compete in a national competition for a spot on the prestigious NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development team.

After beating out hundreds of applicants, Lothian secured a spot on the team in 2019 and was the only driver to win a top-five Championship for the team in 2020 in Legends Racing at the Charlotte Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

In 2021, at age 19, Blake stepped up to full-size stock car racing with Mike Darne Racing and, after only four stock car racing events, won a coveted victory at the famed Hickory Motor Speedway.

In 2022, Lothian made numerous podiums and scored top-five finishes in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Series.

Today, he continues to race Late-Model Stock cars, competing in the highly competitive CARS TOUR Series. He also looks forward to more starts this season in the nationally televised NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series.
