Garrett Denton

Motorsports has been Garrett's interest since age 5. He started his motorsports career racing quarter midgets at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut. After numerous wins, track records and championship seasons, he moved on to race a 4 cylinder mustang at Waterford Speedbowl in Connecticut. At the age of 14, Garrett was named the youngest driver to win a sanctioned NASCAR event in North America. At the age of 17, Garrett earned the title of Champion and was ranked 3rd in the country for NASCAR licensed drivers under the age of 18. Garrett left circle track racing to build his own drift car and attended several fun events with Ready Set Drift at Lyme Rock and Pocono Speedways. He became passionate about drifting and knew this was his future. Shortly after he moved to Ohio to begin attending UNOH, University of Northwestern Ohio, he participated in his first MDU Pro Am event. Garrett finished 8th out of 41 participants. During the 2016 race season, Garrett took the season off to work with his fellow UNOH alumni and friends to rebuild his car for PRO-AM competition. The 2017 MDU PRO AM season resulted in qualifying first 3 out of 4 events. He finished the season second in points earning his PRO2 license. As the 2018 season begins, Garrett is graduating with a dual Associates Degree in High Performance Motorsports Technology and Automotive Technology. He is eager to be competing in the PRO2 level with Formula Drift surrounded by a crew of fellow UNOH graduates and 3 generations of family as he takes to the track this season in his 2jz Nissan S14.
