Career

From the age of eight, Tony Mrakovich knew exactly what he wanted to do with his career, drive in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Since that time, each decision regarding his racing experience was made with that goal in mind. Rather than compete for championship at a single track, Tony and his family made the conscious decision to race at as many different venues as possible to prepare him for the experience he would have as a NASCAR driver. So far, those decisions have paid off as Tony’s successes in the World Karting Association and Legends series have lead to a ride in ARCA, driving for one of the sport’s veterans. Tony and team continue to compete with laser focus on achieving his lifelong dream of earning a ride with a team at the Cup level.
