The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season is AJ Heister’s sixth season on pit road. A decade ago, Heister moved from his hometown of Maquoketa, Iowa in and started his racing career three years later working with Petty Enterprises as a mechanic and front tire carrier. From 2009 to 2012, he worked as a road mechanic and front tire carrier at Front Row Motorsports on the No. 34 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry for David Ragan.

Today, he works for JTG Daugherty Racing as a shop mechanic during the week and on race days he is the front tire carrier for AJ Allmendinger. Outside of the NASCAR garage, Heister works on classic trucks and enjoys time with his wife Jessica and their young son Carson.

When asked what he is anticipating the most this season, it was the team’s first trip to victory lane with AJ Allmendinger.
