"I strive to be better and work hard both on and off the track," explains Tyler Maxson. "I have a lot to be thankful for and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead. It is going to be tough, but I will take all challenges head on and work my hardest to be the best."
Beginning karting at age of six and often seen competing at the front of the field in North America, the ultra-fast and aggressive Georgia resident took on drivers from around the world in Europe late in 2018. While continuing to compete at several high profile events in North America, Tyler Maxson joined the CRG Racing program as a CRG Factory Driver. Crisscrossing his way around the globe, the multi-time champion took on karting’s best as he built the foundation for his climb up the motorsports ladder.
Now, at fourteen years of age, Maxson has entered a whole new world of motorsports. Fast forward to 2019, Tyler Maxson, not legal to drive on the streets of North America yet, has been tearing up race tracks across the country in his Mazda MX-5 Cup racecar. As the youngest driver in the series, Maxson has joined Copeland Motorsports for his rookie campaign and will compete in the Battery Tender Global MX5 Cup Challenge Presented by BF Goodrich as well as the TC America TC Division in the SRO Motorsports Group promoted series.
Working hard to make racing part of his future career, Tyler continues to keep up on his school studies maintaining his honor roll status. Focusing on his favorite subjects of math and science, the 2016 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour champion also enjoys fitness and flight simulation to help keep his senses sharp for on track competition.
