Mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate and short track racer Travis Braden has formed a new partnership with BJ Mcleod, NASCAR driver and team owner of BJ McLeod Motorsports, to provide a professional and turnkey, top-performing environment for developing drivers’ skills as they progress in their careers.

Throughout his career, Braden has made 50 Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) national tours and has several major Super Late Model wins on his resume, including the 2016 Winchester 400 and the 2019 Snowball Derby. Braden expressed that early in his career it was difficult for him to progress without having any established names in the field validate him to their audience. With this new partnership, Braden hopes to change that for younger generations of drivers.
