At only 29 years old, professional race car driver Colin Braun already has a remarkable 24 years of racing experience under his belt. A native of Ovalo, Texas, Colin grew up in a racing family, and from the beginning, there was little doubt about the direction of Colin’s career path. From his days winning in Quarter Midgets all the way to winning in NASCAR and Sports Cars, Colin has consistently demonstrated his speed, experience, and maturity.
What makes Colin’s 24 years of racing experience unique is that he has driven essentially everything with four wheels and an engine. From openwheel cars and sports cars to the NASCAR Truck and Nationwide Series, Colin has excelled.
What makes Colin’s racing experience meaningful to teams and corporate sponsors is that he is a proven winner. Colin has captured multiple championships, race wins, and “Rookie of the Year” awards as he ascended to the top levels of the sport.
Along the way, Colin has earned respect and recognition from the top teams and manufacturers in motorsports — not only for his prowess on the track, but also for his unrelenting commitment to success and quality of personal character. Powerhouse NASCAR teams such as Roush- Fenway Racing and manufacturers such as Ford have hand-picked Colin to compete in their cars and represent their brands in the marketplace.
As he embarks on the next phase in his racing career, Colin’s mission remains the same — to win races and deliver results to his corporate partners.
