JA Avila Jr - NASCAR Driver

Birthday May 11, 1995 

California native J.A. Junior currently drives for BJ McLeod Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The 23-year-old Colombian-American races on a part time basis for the team. Having an impressive racing career racing in the NASCAR K&N (EAST) & (West), and ARCA Racing Series has propelled him the opportunity to move up the ranks. Even with difficult challenges along the way JA was able to win multiple races and championships. The most recent championship was at the famed Las Vegas Motor Speedway (The Bullring) after suffering a major racing accident that cost him two years of racing. His poise to making it to the top level of NASCAR is unreal. Wanting to show young athletes the same way how his father supported him that nothing is impossible.
