MEET THE TEAM
Johnny Sauter is a professional stock car racer who competes in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. Last season, he split time between G2G Racing and ThorSport Racing trucks, in an attempt to make the playoffs. He also lays claim to the 2016 NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series championship.
Sauter was the CRAFTSMAN Truck Series Rookie of the Year in 2009. Likewise, he was also the ASA National Tour Rookie of the Year title in 2001.
Not to mention, he is the son of late stock car racing driver Jim Sauter. Similarly, his older brother Tim and Jay are also well-known race drivers. All three have competed in the Top-3 NASCAR divisions. Hence, it is safe to say Johnny comes from a family of racers, and stock racing runs in his blood.
Poole is no stranger to the NASCAR competition, making 163 starts across the top-3 national touring series. His most notable seasons came in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. During that time, he recorded 8 Top-5s and 36 Top-10 finishes, including a controversial win taken away, due to a rule clarification.
Outside of the Xfinity Series, he has found success in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series, finishing 2nd at Charlotte in 2019, and 4 Top-10 finishes. Running a limited season, he still managed to finish 18th in the overall standings.
Outside of NASCAR, he has found his way to victory lane in the ARCA Menards Series. In his short career in the series, he has an impressive resume of 6 wins, 18 Top-5s, and 27 Top-10s in only 35 starts.
Tim Viens not only brings his passion to the race team that he runs with but he brings his business sense as well, giving his sponsors a professional and fun weekend each time he hits the track.

Understanding your sponsor and their needs is what can make for a great partnership. Tim social reach is now over 60,000 people, with an average of 83 new likes per day.
