Meet The Team
Austin Compton & Charlie Yeager are our junior team members in their 4th year internship with us. They work the pits, attend all display events, maintain the car, help on the line with staging/launch and run the return vehicles to pull the "American Pride" back after the run.
Both will graduate this year and move on to college at UNOH to pursue a career in the motorsports industries.
COOPER MESHEW, Assistant Crew Chief
"Cooper and I met at a team display in Wooster, OH. I was taken with Cooper and his story quickly learning of his goals and dreams.
We invited Cooper and his parents as our guest at our next track event where we had him stand on the line so he could feel the horsepower as our “American Pride” Corvette launched from the light.
Cooper was exhilarated and had an amazing day his parents told us. Soon our relationship blossomed and before we knew it we were all going to the shop together, working on the car, setting meetings for maintenance upgrades and celebrating family with pool parties and trips to amusement parks!
Cooper has now become our full time Assistant Crew Chief constantly learning as much as he can and adding input along with the rest of our team.
It is my great honor and privilege to call Cooper my friend and have his support while we continue to push our program." - A.J. Myers
