Tucker grew up a race fanatic through-and-through, idolizing the legends of dirt like Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell, and Jeff Gordon. He was introduced to sprint car racing by his father and uncle when he was young and began exploring the sport himself when he entered high school. Once he graduated and had the freedom to pursue his dream, he began a more focused career in motorsports.

A true affinity for open-wheel racing vaulted Tucker to success in 2014 to compete at the national level with POWRi and USAC National Midgets. In that short amount of time, Tucker has ascended through the ranks of notable motorsports drivers. He was named the runner-up in the POWRi points championship in 2017, won at Perth Motorplex in Australia the same year, and just recently clinched the 2018 POWRi midget championship.

Tucker spends his days in the race shop helping out during the week before taking off nearly every weekend to race around the country. When he’s not racing midgets… he’s still racing. The 23-year-old races his sprint car in the same series he grew up watching, The World of Outlaws, when his schedule allows.
