Pasco County’s Own to Race and Crew at Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200
HUDSON, February 6, 2017: New Age Motorsports and Students Survival Dream Academy are excited to announce that Cody Lane Racing will be competing in their first race as the Dream Team of Pasco.
Cody is a 21yr old NASCAR Truck and ARCA Car driver. His father and him created New Age Motorsports and Driver Development to help build the racing capabilities and help guide others. Cody has been racing since he’s been 4 years old. But most importantly he is a Pasco County native, graduating High School in Hudson. He grew up with many of the kids now forgotten. Cody also has an uncanny ability to connect with the younger generation, especially kids with special needs.
Cody and Students Survival decided to team up to provide an opportunity and do something that hasn’t been done in years! Create a homegrown, hometown racing program. And as part of the program, kids who get to be a part of the racing, are also required to complete their education to become career ready through the new Dream Academy.
The kids in the Dream Academy are learning the ins and outs of racing. They are building the car from scratch. A Dodge body running a Ilmore Engine, the kids are learning to build and tune from the ground up. Ages 17-20, they will also be the pit crew at the race. These same kids will be working with the Dream Academy on completing their High School diplomas and career start. From aspiring HVAC Technicians to Budding Entrepreneurs, these kids are making progress towards their goals each day.
“I’ve been racing since I have been four years old. I grew up in Pasco. I know these kids. It’s a great chance to make an impact and give back to my community. They have supported me all the way,” Cody Lane shared. Cody has formed a bond with a number of youth, including a number of special needs.
“Our new Dream Academy is really getting off to a great start! These kids are both passionate about the race and getting their lives together. No matter the outcome, we are all winners in this race!” shared Lindsay Zullo, President and Executive Director for Students Survival, Inc.
