Racing careerEdit

Early yearsEdit

The son of an amateur racer, Holman started racing by running go-karts and late models during his teenage years,[1] culminating with two ARCA Racing Series starts at age nineteen.[2]

X-1R Pro CupEdit

Starting in 2007, Holman raced mainly in the Pro Cup Series.[3] He collected his first win in 2008 on his way to a sixth-place points finish.[4] In 2009, Holman secured three poles in twelve races but could not close the deal in any of them.[5] A dominant 2010 season ensued in which he won four races and finished runner-up, the closest finish yet to a championship.[6] Holman backed up those results in 2011 when he led all but five races and recorded top tens in all but three.[7] The efforts were scaled back in 2012 as Holman started to move up to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.[8] In 2013, he won two races while running half the fourteen-race schedule.[9] Returning to the series full-time in 2014, Holman won half the races, including the final four to win the championship.[10] He earned almost $70,000 for that championship.[1]

NASCAREdit

Holman started racing in the NASCAR Busch Grand National (now Xfinity) series in 2003. He attempted five races, qualified for two and finished one, at the Milwaukee Mile.[11] He then made one race for Ortec Racing in 2004.[12] He then teamed up with Henderson Motorsports for the first time two years later, attempting five races and qualifying for one.[13] His one attempt with the team in 2007 ended in a crash.[14]

Starting in 2012, Holman rekindled his relationship with Henderson to run a partial Camping World Truck Series schedule, mostly on short tracks.[15] In 2013, Holman branched out to superspeedways, running for Henderson in the race at Talladega Superspeedway, but he crashed out, though he ran well on short tracks.[16] Once again entering a restrictor plate race and short track races, Holman almost made the top ten at Martinsville Speedway in 2014.[17] He was running in the top ten, but contact with David Starr resulted in a flat tire.[18] Continuing his partial schedule in 2015, Holman recorded his first top ten at Martinsville with sponsorship from Tide Pods.[19] He recorded his first intermediate track top ten in 2015,[20] and won time trials at Eldora,[21] but was wrecked by Stewart Friesen. Holman announced his retirement from NASCAR events via Facebook on September 19, 2017 to become a leader at his church.
