June 8, 2018 – Charlotte, NC – The latest generation of racing drivers has shown an outstanding ability to be competitive not just on the racetrack, but also in the classroom or on their computers as they compete across the land. The latest of these rising talents is 17-year-old Cole Glasson, a native Texan who dominated in Karts as a child, now competing in Late Model Stock Cars for Lee Faulk in the Carolinas.
Despite the time spent on the East Coast, Glasson has maintained a deep scholarly connection with his home state, attending Texas Connection Academy and taking many classes online. Not only has he gained a full high school education, he has succeeded in school as well, being named to the National Honor Society and earning valedictorian for 2018. All while becoming a better driver.
CONCORD, N.C. – Cole Glasson will do something he’s never done on Saturday at Hickory Motor Speedway when he competes with the CARS Response Energy Tour for the first time.
Glasson, 17, will be competing in the late model stock car division Saturday at Hickory, a track the native of Dallas, Texas, has made many laps at during the last two years.
