Garrett Manes

Car Number 1

Watching my dad be successful and respected in racing for over 23 years got me interested. I got my chance 5 years ago when my dad came home and told me he had just signed a sponsorship deal with sweetFrog. Starting at 10 years old, I won 3 consecutive Youth Championships in Arena Racing. That success has opened doors for me in racing: Charlotte Motor Speedway in Legends, Pro Truck Race this past December in Florida, and being hired as the first youth reporter for the worldwide NASCAR show “RACELINE.”

  • What I like most about Arena Racing:
    What I like most about Arena Racing: It has allowed me to meet people of all ages and it gives me the opportunity to make a difference in a kid's life, no matter the age. Upon being diagnosed on the spectrum of Autism at age 2, it has been very close to my heart ever since. My motto is “Race For A Cause” which guides me through my travels around the racing world. After traveling to Texas for the World Premiere of “Light Up To Live” it was life changing. Our goal is to move through the ranks of NASCAR, bringing exposure to the troops with PTSD, TBI and what In Light Wellness Systems can do for them, how it can change their lives and bring them back.
