2019 CARS Tour Rookie of the Year

Mini New July 2019
for home page

August 6, 2020: We had a great test session at Dominion Raceway on Wednesday. It's always special to race close to home. I can't wait to see our following of friends and family on Saturday who've supported us for a long time. Dominion is definitely one of my favorite places. Our team did an amazing job last week at Hickory. Qualifying on the pole and finishing 3rd was a huge boost in confidence for all of us. I think we have a car that's more than capable of winning. We just have to get it done. Read the Dominion preview

Friends of Jaclyn Foundation

Timmy Tyrrell Racing and driver Mini Tyrrell joined forces with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation in 2019. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. The program starts by adopting a child and making them an honorary pit crew member. But it's not just for one race. It's for as long as the child and family are in need of support.
