About Mason

Mason Diaz is an up-and-coming driver competing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.

Mason Diaz is a competitor in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and a full-time student at Old Dominion University, majoring in business with a minor in motorsports engineering.  He has been racing since he was four-years-old and continues to move up the ranks of asphalt racing.

He received his first go-kart when he was four years old.  After dominating in his local karting club, he moved up in 2008 into Bandolero competition, racing predominantly at Old Dominion Speedway in his hometown of Manassas, Virginia.  Shortly after, he moved into INEX Legends.

In 2015, he won the Virginia State Champion in the INEX Young Lion Division.  The following year, he moved up into the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, racing in a Limited Late Model at South Boston.

Mason Diaz made headlines when he picked up a top-10 finish in his first Snowflake 100 attempt back in 2016.

In 2017, Diaz stepped up to a Late Model Stock Car in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, scoring his first win in his third race of the year at Southern National Motorsports Park.  He won several other races in 2017 en-route to the track championship, while also picking up a victory in the Rusty Harpe Memorial at Caraway Speedway.

In October 2017, Diaz made his first career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series start, qualifying ninth and running inside the top-15 until a cut tire relegated him to a 23rd place finish.

Diaz stated out the year strong in 2018, scoring a victory over Mike Skinner in a 100-lap Pro Late Model race at New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series of Asphalt.  He also made his first career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Richmond Raceway in September 2018, finishing 18th.

In 2019, Diaz will race full-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East while also competing in select NASCAR XFINITY Series races.  During the summer, he works full-time to help with his racing costs.  Through his racing efforts, he has raised awareness for breast cancer, the United Spinal Association, and the Shepard Center.

Throughout his racing career, Diaz has made headlines, being featured on Race22.com, Speed51.com, The Weekly Racer, Late Model Racer Magazine, Old Dominion University’s news hub and NASCAR Home Tracks.  He also received attention from Fox Sports during his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut after a ninth place qualifying effort.
