Tyler is currently the driver of the #5 Silver Hare Racing TA2 Ford Mustang in the 2021 Trans Am Series by Pirelli.  In addition to driving duties, he also provides coaching and data engineering services.   


Tyler started racing asphalt Quarter Midgets when he was six years old and has run everything from Go-Karts to Spec Racer Fords and a handful of other road-race cars at tracks around North America.  Racing has long been a family endeavor for Tyler and he has been involved in motorsports for 30 years either behind the wheel or at the track supporting his father's racing efforts.  Tyler is most well known for his achievements as a momentum car specialist behind the wheel of a SpecMiata, winning two SCCA national points championships and the 2016 NASA National Championship.  He recently made the jump up to the Trans Am series behind the wheel of a TA2 car, winning in his fourth series start.    


Tyler is known to adapt quickly to new cars and tracks.  He's technically savvy and understands the principles of vehicle dynamics required to provide teams valuable feedback.  Tyler leans heavily on his own ability to analyze vehicle data to elevate the performance of himself and his team.  

Outside of racing, Tyler is the founder and CEO of Kollab, an owner's rep and creative firm he launched in 2020.  Tyler has twelve years of experience in the live event and construction industries, most recently as the VP, Head of Creative for TAIT, the world leader in live event and entertainment technology.
