Brief History
Dylan has been racing since age 7. During this time, he has earned 12 Championships in various forms of racing and won over 90 Features. We are committed to racing and developing his abilities as a driver. Since the start in 2002, our team has invested in racing equipment and traveling to events - all done with very little sponsorship support. All of our equipment is top notch and we are focused on winning while representing ourselves and future sponsors professionally.

In 2009, Dylan was the premier 14-year-old in the INEX Pro Legends Series. He won 11 Features out of 33 events in his first year as a Pro in the Legend Series. Dylan also was the INEX Alabama State Champion, won features at the Orlando INEX Winter Nationals, won the Lanier Asphalt National Race of Champions, and won several weekly shows at Lanier Speedway, Anderson Speedway, Watermelon Speedway and Huntsville Speedway.

In 2010, Dylan stepped into the Dirt Late Model arena. The team selected tracks to compete at during the 2010 season that would allow Dylan to log valuable seat time in the CRATE Division. Dylan recorded 13 top 5 and 26 top 10 finishes out of 36 events. Dylan gained valuable experience with the larger Late Model through 2010.

In 2011, we were again committed to continue developing Dylan's abilities by stepping into the Super Dirt Late Model arena. We completed a 20 race schedule for 2011 with 1 Win, 4 top 5's and 9 top 10's out of 14 events run.

In 2012, Dylan Ames Racing headed to the track 25 times with the Super Dirt Late Model. The team focused on some local shows and also some higher paying regional series races in the area. Dylan recorded 3 wins, 7 top 5's and 12 top 10's. The team made some major changes at the end of 2012 and is looking forward to great things in 2013. We are very excited about our prospects in 2013 due to joining the Dream Team of Randy Weaver and Team GRT.

Dylan Ames Racing enjoyed a solid 2013 racing season. Dylan spent most of 2013 competing in regional series races in the states of Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi. The young Super Late Model chauffeur, who hails from Harvest, Alabama, racked up seven (7) Top Five finishes and fourteen (14) Top Ten efforts in the twenty-seven (27) events that he entered last year. His best performance of '13 came on April 20, as he finished a strong runner-up in a weekly program at Moulton Speedway in Moulton, Alabama.

When he raced against some of the region's top drivers, Dylan performed well, as he claimed Top Tens in high-profile shows sanctioned by the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series, Spring Nationals, Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series, and Southern Regional Racing Series. The #77a team also entered a couple of the biggest races in the Dirt Late Model industry ($50,000 to win 'North/South 100' at Florence (KY) Speedway & $20,000 to win 'National 100' at East Alabama Motor Speedway) and Dylan was able to transfer his GRT racecar into the 100-lapper at EAMS before finishing twenty-third.

The 2014 campaign took Ames into battle in 38 events as the team expanded its schedule to compete in more challenging events. Along the way Dylan finished in the top five on 5 occasions and in the top ten on 14 of his outings. It was a definite year of learning for the talented young racer.

While much of the 2015 season was plagued by rain, the team did manage to enter 28 events. Ames enjoyed an excellent year as he won 3 events to go along with 9 top-five-finishes and 15 top-ten-finishes.
