Our Story

The man behind Nitro Motorsports is Nick Tucker. Nick quickly rose to the top levels of motorsports all the way up to the Nascar Xfinity Series.  He has amassed a winning career in all sorts of disciplines including Nascar, late models, sprint cars, Legends, and karts, on road course, oval, dirt and asphalt.  He is the founder and owner of Nitro Kart, the winningest team in modern karting. He’s trained his drivers to dozens of National Championships and multiple World Championships.  His resume speaks volumes to his talent as a driver, coach, and organizer for winning programs.

It is no secret that Nascar, the most premier racing program in the USA, is holding a growing number of races on road courses.  Many of the top tier drivers in Nascar have expressed the need for current and future Nascar drivers to have robust road course experience.  At the same time, Road Course racing is rapidly growing in popularity.  The Trans Am Series is seeing a record number of entries and interest and is the hot spot for road course racing.

Based out of Charlotte, right next to Charlotte Motor Speedway, Nitro is centrally located to the motorsports industry.   The Trans Am TA2 car is the perfect platform to give elite drivers a purpose built race car to refine their craft, while remaining an economical solution for aspiring pros.

We offer solutions for anybody wanting to drive a TA2 car.  Complete arrive and drive solutions with mechanics and equipment for Track Days and Trans Am racing events. Test Days to see if TA2 is right for you. And extended programs for driver development.  We have a growing list of coaches for you to work with.  All of this can be done with our car or yours.

In partnership with Nick are Joe Tovo and Jim Maier. Joe and Jim will assist behind the scenes with financial and administrative resources, although you’ll often see them trackside supporting our TA2 program.
