About Josh Wise
Josh Wise secured his place in motorsports history and marked his entrance into professional racing when in 1999, he became the youngest USAC Champion at age 16. While honing his open wheel skills, Josh raced for industry heroes such as A.J. Foyt and Tony Stewart, and racked up 5 championships and 34 wins, in just 6 years. Legendary racer Tony Stewart recognized the young racer's talent and recruited him to a 3-year USAC National Series deal with Tony Stewart Racing. After 3-years at TSR, Tony knew Josh was an open-wheel standout with the skills to crossover into the stock car world. Tony propelled Josh to the next phase of his racing career with a call to Charlotte, N.C. - the heart of NASCAR. Josh was signed as a development driver for Michael Waltrip Racing, where he spent 3 years racing in stock car feeder series including the ARCA RE/MAX Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and most recently, the NASCAR Nationwide Series while still filling the holes in his schedule with short track racing.
