Cole Glasson was born in 2000 and his hometown is Rockwall, TX, and is a daredevil at heart – he began racing at the age of 5 years old. Glasson enjoys running, iRacing, fishing, and watching any sports. His parents are Tim and Wendy Glasson, and he has two sisters Courtney and Alexa. Besides being fast on the track, Glasson has an impressive resume off the track.
Academically, Cole maintains a straight “A” average, was a member of the National Honor Society, and was named student of the year in 2012, 2013, and 2014 and graduated Valedictorian from Texas Connections Academy which is an online College Prep School. Glasson currently attends Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia where he is in the Honors Program studying Mechanical Engineering.
When not racing, Glasson can be found running with his dad in 5k’s, 10k’s, and half marathons and is also actively involved with his Cole Glasson Foundation, a charitable foundation. Glasson’s goal is to follow God’s path and ministering along the way with whatever God puts in front of him.
Glasson has completed his twelfth full season of racing and has become very competitive at the national level. For the 2017/2018 seasons, Cole is signed with Lee Faulk Racing and Development as their primary driver in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series where he will drive select tracks across the southeast for a minimum of 18 races each year.
Glasson has won three national championships, been runner-up in three more, as well as runner-up for Rookie of the Year in the Southeast Super Trucks. He also has won two UNOH Youth Achievement Awards in 2016.
In addition to Late Models in 2019, Glasson will also return to the ARCA Menards Series and compete in a limited schedule for Win-Tron Racing.
