Austin would start out as a karting spectator at only seven years of age, watching races at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. After a few years on the sidelines, Austin was hooked after his first time in a kart. Placing fourth in his first Utah Kart Championship series, it did not take the young talent long as the following year Austin won his first championship.

20 Questions with Austin

How did you first get into driving?

I first got into driving when I went out to Miller Motorsports Park to watch some racing. I saw some kids my age (7) karting on the kart track and I really wanted to try it. Later that year I tested a kart, and from there I was hooked.

Favorite track?

So far this year my favorite track has been Sebring International Raceway In Florida.

What was your most memorable race?

I don’t have a most memorable car race because this is my first year in cars. But from karting, probably the 2014 Pan Am challenge when I went from last to first.

Who is your favorite driver?

Max Verstappen

What’s the fastest you’ve ever driven?

Im not sure how fast I’ve ever been – as a driver you don’t care about the speed. You care about where you finish… thats it.

What was it like when you first got into your new ride?

It was crazy when I first hopped into a Lites car. There are so many different car dynamics compared to karting. It was also crazy because it was the first car I ever drove.

When you’re driving, is there ever a song that get’s stuck in your head?

When your driving you are always focused 100% you don’t have time to think about anything but driving.

When you’re not driving, you are ….? 

When I’m not driving, I’m most likely to be in school, or working out, going over data with the team, or hanging out with friends when I’m home.

Favorite subject in school & why?

History. I don’t know why I like it so much I just always love learning about the past.

Describe your personal style

I’m not sure how describe myself. I’m a teen who just tries to be friendly all around. I guess Im a little pop/hip hop but I think I’m a combination of many personality traits.

Video games or books?

I do read books, mostly racing ones. I do play one video game that’s a race simulator to help me get visualize tracks before I get on them.

What’s the last movie you saw?

I’m not sure the last movie I saw, but I think it was Rush. Everyone should watch this show.

Favorite all-time movie?

Favorite movie of all time is a tie between Talladega Knights and Rush.

Typical pre-race meal?

I don’t have a specific pre race meal. But i usually eat some yogurt with a banana and drink a bunch of water. I don’t like to eat right before I go out, so I eat light.

Favorite post-race treat?

Oreos.
