- DRIVER PROFILE -
Justin Swilling is making his dream of racing in NASCAR’s premiere racing
series a reality by quickly advancing through the ranks in the motorsports
industry. Justin has been racing since he was nine years old. He began
racing with the 600 Racing sanctioned program. He began with a
Bandolero car and advanced to a Legends car, where he has had great
success. Since 2006, he has amassed three championships in multiple
racing series and fifty-seven top five finishes.
In addition to his racing schedule, Justin is enrolled as a full time home
schooled student. He intends to attend Belmont Abbey College to pursue
the Motorsports Management Program created by legendary promoter
Humpy Wheeler. Justin is interested in learning the principles of business
and the business practices of motorsports entities.
Justin received an invitation to participate in the inaugural driver development
program Humpy’s Heroes. He is one of ten drivers in the nation to receive
an invitation. Such invitations do not come often for race car drivers. To
receive such recognition from a legendary motorsports promoter is a
testament to Justin’s talent and the hard work he has given throughout his
Justin’s goal in life has always been to make it to
the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He has
modeled himself after Carl Edwards on and off
the track; I like his “Never give up” attitude and
his aggressive driving techniques on the track.
He is also extremely well at selling his sponsors
product in front of his fans and on television.
Carl Edwards is just a flat out likable guy on and
off the track and that is why I try to model myself
The program is a comprehensive educational
experience preparing young drivers to make the
transition from local short-track racing to
NASCAR’s big three series,” remarked H.A.
Humpy” Wheeler. “During the program, the
participants will be given instruction, counseled,
engage in dialog then judged on their driving
ability, interviewing skills, public speaking, and
Each driver will spend personal time with Wheeler,
legendary Hall of Fame promoter and former
president and general manager of Lowe’s Motor
Speedway in Charlotte, N.C.
“Influencing the career paths of drivers has always
been a primary passion of mine,” Wheeler added.
“I have the pleasure of saying I’ve
coached and help guide some of the greatest
drivers in NASCAR history.”
The drivers will also have the unique
opportunity to be exposed to a series
of industry experts who will share their
knowledge and experiences with the
group in a private classroom setting.
Never before has such an educational
program been available to the racing
“This is not a ride-along program,” stated
Wheeler. “Each young driver’s ability has
been recognized by motorsports insiders
and they are being offered this opportunity
because of the skill and tenacity
demonstrated behind the wheel. Nowhere
else in the industry will you find a program of
this caliber available for serious racers that
want to advance their career.”
Through a series of events lasting
throughout the summer, the drivers will
vie for a grand prize that includes an
open test session with a top Sprint
Cup Series team, as well as an
interview on a nationally televised
program. JUSTIN SWILLING

Justin is active in the community through his
local church. He has participated in events
including feeding the homeless, helping
with fundraisers, and collecting canned
food products for his church food pantry.
“My personality has always been
known as the very talkative and
energetic guy whom is very easy
to get along with. My on-track
personality has always been
known as the cautious and
conservative driver who is always
at the front of the pack contending
for the win at the end of every
race. My one true weakness off of
the track is that I am always
thinking about racing, this can
sometimes get in the way of
completing the task at hand. My
biggest strength both on and off
the track is that I have both
determination and discipline to be
the best person and the best
racecar driver that I can possibly
