Mason Ludwig

Oval Asphalt Late Model


Mason began racing competitively in 2010 when he was 7 years old.  At a very young age, he had a natural attraction to anything and everything that had an engine and just wanted to drive.  His racing career began in dirt oval go-karts with his dad, mom, and brother as his crew.  He competed at a local and national level for 4 years before moving into a Bandolero in 2014, the first year Bandoleros were brought to Michigan.  Mason was the very first Bandolero driver to ever make a lap in Michigan and one of his proudest moments was winning the first ever Michigan Bandolero Championship.  That was his only year in that series as he quickly progressed to the Legends division.  Mason competed in the Legends division for 2 years before moving into an asphalt late model in 2017.  He had a successful 1st year in the full-size car and the family made the decision to take Mason’s career to the next step by seeking out a professional agent.  McCallister Precision Marketing was able to connect Mason with Leicht Motorsports for the 2018 season.  Mason will be manning the number 12 late model in the Paramount Kia “Big 10” Challenge at Hickory Motor Speedway.  Beyond racing, Mason attends North Branch High School in his hometown of North Branch, MI.  He also holds a continuous bottle drive and donates the proceeds to Lapeer’s Adoptable Animals, a non-profit organization with a goal of lowering the euthanasia rate in Lapeer County, MI.
