Orange, Calif., April 14th – Redline Detection, the world’s leader in diagnostic leak detection technology, announced today their sponsorship of 19-year-old NASCAR driver Blake Lothian. Lothian, nicknamed “The Youngster”, is a Wellesley, MA native who began competitively racing go-karts at the age of 10 and over the years has proven himself on the track as one to watch.
In 2021, Blake completed a successful late-model rookie season, debuting in the top five at Southern National in June and finishing the season with a first-place win and a pole at Hickory Motor Speedway. Blake started 2022 strong by breaking a two-year old track qualifying time record at Hickory Motor Speedway in March and competing in his first truck race at the Camping World Truck series in Martinsville in April, where he successfully completed all 200 laps with a P28 finish.
In addition to his racing successes, Blake is an advocate for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, participating in the Racing for a Cure fundraiser in memory of his aunt and grandmother. Blake has also been recognized by the Wellesley School Committee for his commitment to motivating young children to reach their goals in academics and sports.
"I'm so impressed by all that Blake has accomplished on the racetrack at such a young age, as well as his dedication to empowering other young people in the community to pursue their goals," said Alex Parker, CMO of Redline Detection. "The Redline team is thrilled to sponsor Blake and cheer him on toward many more successes."
