In his first full season in Legends, Alan enjoyed quick success winning Legends’ “Young Lions Division” on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Road Course.
NASCAR WHELEN Late Model Series
2017 also marked Lawless Alan’s rookie season in the NASCAR WHELEN Late Model Series at Irwindale Speedway. When the final checker flew, Alan had finished fourth in points in California’s NASCAR Home Track Series and forty fourth of more than 1,000 drivers across America. Alan led all rookies in points at Irwindale Speedway with one win, six podiums, a dozen top fives, and more than 20 top tens.
NASCAR Home Track Championship
2018 opened with Alan winning the Late Model Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway. Alan qualified on pole and set a new track record in the process. In his second season at Irwindale Raceway, Alan took NASCAR’S Home Track Championship with five wins, two Poles and multiple podiums. Alan collected his championship trophy at NASCAR’s annual awards banquet along with the stars of the NASCAR Truck, Xfinity and Cup series.
The Trans am presented by Pirelli
In 2019, Alan moved to The Trans Am presented by Pirelli to focus on his road racing skills. Running all 13 Trans Am TA2 events, Alan took home “Rookie of the Year” and finished fifth overall in the championship. Over the season Alan competed on many of America’s top road courses including Sebring, Road Atlanta, Lime Rock Park, Laguna Seca, The Detroit Grand Prix, Mid-Ohio, Road America, Indianapolis, Circuit of the Americas, and Daytona.
The 2020 season began with Alan selected to join the Toyota Driver Development Program driving the AUTOParkit, Bill McAnally Racing, Toyota Camry, in the ARCA Menards West series. In Alan’s first appearance at “The Bull Ring” in Las Vegas, he finished sixth after a tough restart from fourth with three to go.
At the second race of the year and the first of the ARCA Sioux Chief series, Alan put up a strong top ten finish in ninth and was the highest-placed finisher among ARCA West drivers. For the first road racing event at Utah Motorsport Park, Alan would start on the front row after dominating the time charts in practice. Although extremely quick, lady luck was not on his side as his BMR, Toyota was suffering from a mechanical issue that would lead to a frontend collapse and his retirement. Ultimately the worldwide COVID pandemic would bring Alan’s 2020 ARCA West season to an end — but not his racing!
The Fall of 2020 found Alan racing his trusty AUTOParkit Legends car. Alan has been highly successful in the category and once again he was winning races. At season’s end, he was the winner of the Legends Pro Road Racing series championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
For 2021, Alan has moved his attentions to NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series and the World Racing League (WRL) endurance series. Alan initially signed an agreement for four races with Reaume Brothers Racing for NASCAR’s Camping world Truck Series, then later moved to Niece Motorsports in their No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado. Alan is also competing at selected World Racing League endurance events with past champions Hammer-Motorsports, driving their Audi RS3 LMS touring car.
NASCAR Camping World Truck
Looking to maintain his rookie status for 2022, Alan selected eight races to build his familiarity with the new equipment and level of competition in the hugely popular Camping World Truck Series. With COVID-19 still affecting the racing world, most NASCAR events are limited to races only, meaning no practice or qualifying.
Alan would start his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the Daytona Road Course with the only experience in his new AUTOParkit, Reaum Brothers Racing, Toyota being from driving from the garage to the grid. Undaunted Alan used his Trans Am experience to move through the field from thirty first to twelfth before the all-too familiar mechanical gremlins of 2020 returned. Alan competed in three additional events under the Reaume Brothers tent, Circuit of the Americas, Pocono and Watkins Glen International.
Midyear, Alan signed with Niece Motorsports a race-winning and championship-challenging Camping World Truck team. Alan immediately has become a top ten threat. With the NASCAR’s no-practice, no-qualifying COVID restrictions still in place, Alan continues to start from the back and taking to the track without ever turning a lap. The first two events with Niece and Chevrolet now complete, Alan has proven to truck series regulars he is someone to be reckoned with today and into the future.
Looking forward this fall, Alan’s final two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events will be at Talladega Motor Speedway and Phoenix International. Between races Alan can be found in the Chevrolet Simulator learning the tracks and working with the team as they develop his setup
World Racing League Endurance Series
Alan began the WRL 2021 season at Mid-Ohio with the sponsorship of Lucas Oil and AUTOParkit. Armed with their Audi RS3 LMS touring car, the Hammer team is a regular winner and past champion of the highly popular endurance series. The WRL team presented another learning experience for the now 21-year-old driver. Alan’s WRL GT car is a paddle shift, ABS brake and electronic traction control-equipped, factory-built TCR racecar with technical support from Audi.
In his usual fashion, Alan quickly adapted to the new car and the electronic driver’s aids and was the fastest driver on the team in just a couple of sessions. Come race time, Alan faced changing conditions as rain began. Having taken the time to carefully walk the track and noting the different pavement and drainage, Alan easily took the lead of the event as rain intensified. WRL races are, at a minimum, eight hours in length and the driving chores are split between as many as four drivers. Alan ran the first half of the event building the lead until a fuel pump issue put the team down several laps.
Alan rejoined the Hammer-Motorsports team at Daytona where once again he led the group of drivers and the event, sadly his run of bad luck and mechanical maladies continued, however. Undeterred every time he took the wheel, Alan continued to set fast lap times.
Alan and Hammer-Motorsports were in top form at Virginia International Raceway. Alan led the team, putting in the most laps and the fastest laps of the team’s drivers. On both days the race was plagued by yellow and red flags that slowed the team’s march to the front. In the end, the team’s efforts paid dividends with a fourth on Saturday and a third in the Sunday race. Next up Sebring Oct. 30.
The Trans Am presented by Pirelli
The fall of 2021 will see Alan rejoin The Trans Am presented by Pirelli for the series final event. Alan will enjoy the support of AUTOParkit and Siemens when he debuts his 2022 Silver Hare Racing, Howe Racing Enterprises, Ford Mustang, at Circuit of the Americas this November.
Lawless enjoys sponsorship from AUTOParkit, AUTOChargit, and Siemens with secondary sponsorship from Garage Floor 24. Since 2017, Alan has been the official spokesperson for AUTOParkit and its sister companies: Garage Floor 24, AUTOCargit, Park Senty, AUTOStorit and AUTODockit. Alan can be regularly seen mixing with his sponsors and guests, signing autographs, and taking photos. Alan has a deep appreciation for the people and companies that have supported him from his earliest successes.
While racing, Alan is attending the University of Alabama majoring in Business. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif. A serious student, Alan can be found in the hauler, at home, or on the plane doing homework in between on-track sessions, travels and simulator work. His drive and determination to improve himself at all levels includes a rigorous daily workout regimen. At home and at the track Alan pushes himself mentally and physically to be better. No doubt Lawless Alan is a young man with an eye for detail and a desire to become the best he can be on the track and off.
Alan has spent a great deal of time working on his media presence. His numerous appearances on ESPN’s Race Central Radio in the Denver market have proven not only to be beneficial in his growth but also very popular with the listeners and host Kurt Hansen. To add to his comfort, Alan has done more than just “phone it in,” he made the effort to visit the studio, build a report with the host while at the same time raise his on-air comfort level.
At just 19, Alan filmed his first national commercial for AUTOParkit. The one-minute spot was further developed into two 30-second ads that see regular rotation on MAVTV during the network’s ARCA coverage.
