What I Race
My Career So Far
Before he started racing, Rajah was a NASCAR super-fan. He got a NASCAR encyclopedia at age 7 as a Christmas gift, he started collecting diecast and making stop-motions at age 12, and attended his first race later that year (2014) at Richmond Raceway. From attending that NASCAR Nationwide series event onward, he had no doubt in his mind that he wanted to spend his life in this industry. After a summer of rental karting at Autobahn Indoor Speedway (Jessup, MD, 2017), Rajah made the jump to sim racing in June of 2018. Following a successful first few months on iRacing, he made not only the eNASCAR Ignite Series playoffs, but also the championship event at the virtual version of Martinsville Speedway in September of 2018. Subsequently, Rajah made the 2019 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Youth Combine, and then the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Youth Driver Development Program. As a part of this program, he raced a U.S. Legend car in the Bojangle's Summer Shootout with Rev Racing and AK Performance, accumulating 2 top 10s and 2 heat wins and ending up 13th in the final points standings. After a couple of top 5s at the Fall Series at the Fifth Mile at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Rajah made the 2019 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine in Daytona Beach, Florida. Following that, he was fortunate enough to be selected to be apart of the 2020 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program. In 2020, Rajah has been racing a Late Model Stock for Rev Racing in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series, and a Legend Car at the Summer Shootout again. In legends, he racked up 8 top 10s and ended up 6th in the final shootout standings, a massive improvement from the summer beforehand. In late model stocks, he went from running in the back of the field in his first race at Hickory in June, to being in the top 10 consistently, to running up front. With 3 or more races left in late models this year, Rajah is poised and motivated to get the first win of his career.
