"This is a dream come true for us to be partnered with such an amazing company run by equally amazing people. This has been in the works for quite some time and all parties have just been waiting for the right moment to put it together. I’m excited to be the forerunner with TNC, bringing this industry into Motorsports,” said Simon.

About Landon Simon
Landon Simon is an American sprint car driver from Tipp City, Ohio. who was a sprint car fan from the time he was born and even dressed in a Jack Hewitt t-shirt for the drive home from the hospital. He attended his first sprint car race when he was just two weeks old. He was raised around the 120 mph-capable machines and could be found in the race shop trying to mount race tires when he was just three years old. He spent his school years and summer vacations working with the legendary race car driver Jack Hewitt, long-time winged sprint car driver Jimmy Stinson, open wheel veteran Matt Westfall and his father, Chris Simon, who began racing sprint cars in 1990.
His decision to follow in his father's footsteps came about after he was accidentally shot in the chest with a shotgun at a friend's house when he was 17 years old. He was life-flighted to Miami Valley Hospital and spent three days in a coma before he was released. Facing a long road to recovery, Landon decided to pursue his dream of becoming a race car driver. The teen worked hard and turned his dreams into reality by building the first Landon Simon Racing sprint car during his senior year of high school and became part of the third generation of Simon sprint car drivers and mechanics.
In 2008 Landon's rookie year consisted of balancing schoolwork, racing and continued rehabilitation for injuries sustained in the accident. That same year, Landon raced his way to Dayton Area Race Fans (D.A.R.F) Rookie of the Year award, Waynesfield Raceway Park (WRP) Rookie of the Year award and finished No. 8 in WRP points. The following years were spent racing across the country as a hired driver, not only out of the LSR stable, but for Indiana and Ohio-based race teams as well.
In the winter of 2013, Landon's drive and passion for the sport led him to Indianapolis to further his racing career against the best drivers in the country. He now resides in Avon, Indiana with his fiancé and their 4 rescue dogs.
