Lee Pulliam Performance is happy to announce that 15 year old driver Jonathan Shafer from Ashland, Ohio will pilot the #91 LPP machine in the 2021 CARS TOUR Season. Jonathan competed in the majority of the tour races in the 2020 season and looks to build on what he learned for 2021. We are excited to have long time veteran crew chief Winston Brooks calling the shots on the 91 machine. With Winston's proven track record and Jonathan's tenacity to get into victory lane we are extremely excited to see what this pairing can achieve together. "First of all I am very grateful and honored to drive for LPP in 2021. I'm especially excited to have Lee as my driver coach, and the opportunity to work with a great crew chief like Winston Brooks. Last year was more of a learning year for me. Moving onto 2021 I feel with the equipment and expertise that LPP can provide, that I can win races and contend for a championship. I feel very privileged to work with a legend like Lee Pulliam. It's not every day that a drivers gets to drive for a team owner that has been so successful in late model racing. I can't wait to work with the LPP crew moving onto 2021," commented Jonathan Shafer. " I'm really excited to have Jonathan signed to drive for us in the 2021 season and I feel like with Winston in his ear and calling the shots he will have a great opportunity at a breakout season in the tour. It's easy to see Jonathan's desire to learn and win races and I feel like our team gives him a great chance at achieving his goals. Our goal is to have the best two cars at the track each and every week and I think with the teams we are assembling here at LPP, we have a great chance each and every weekend," remarks from team owner Lee Pulliam.
