bio-photo-1COLE’S STORY

Cole Anderson was a late bloomer when it came to racing, climbing into the cockpit of a racecar for the first time in 2011 when he was 13 years old. Beginning in quarter midgets, Anderson racked up three championships in four years and proved he had what it took to succeed at some of the highest levels of motorsports.

By 2014, Cole was groomed and ready for the jump to full-size cars, first testing the waters in a “Big 8” car, a middle ground of sorts that rides on a narrow tire and doesn’t carry near the speed of pro and super late models. He passed the test with flying colors and subsequently jumped into full blown super late models.

In just a few short seasons, Cole has gone from a “who’s that?” entry to “a driver to beat” anywhere he and his crew unload a racecar. In his first season touring, he captured wins and poles in the Southern Super Series, triumphs at the highly competitive New Smyrna Speedway in Florida, and various other successes across the country.

Ultimately, Cole has aspirations to make it to the top levels of NASCAR. With his proven track record behind the wheel, his business savvy and work ethic, there is little doubt that Cole Anderson will soon become a household name with race fans across the country.

WHAT THE INDUSTRY IS SAYING

Cole came on the national late model scene with a bang. He really got my attention after winning the season-opening Red Eye 100 at New Smyrna and has continued to impress ever since. His willingness to travel and face tougher competition has earned him respect from a national audience, especially given the success he's starting to earn.

Cole Anderson has been immensely impressive in just his first season racing late models in the Deep South. He has gone from a relative no-name to being someone you have to beat in order to win every weekend. His success against the best the region has raised his stock considerably and he will only continue to improve over the next few years as he gains more experience.

Cole has quickly become a solid talent behind the wheel in super late model racing. He's won races in traditionally very competitive series and it's been a pleasure to work with him during his first season as a traveling late model star. There are many things in store for him in the near future and I look forward to seeing his success.
