John VanDoorn is from Coopersville, MI, northwest of Grand Rapids, and has been racing more than 20 years. His dad was a huge fan, and John’s desire to race developed early. He started with Go-Karts at the age of 8, followed by Stock Cars on dirt at 12, and Late Models at 16. John, a three-time ARCA-CRA Super Series Champion, continues to race Super Late Models and Pro Late Models, competing in ARCA events, and the JEGS-CRA All-Stars Tour with car #71. When he isn’t racing, John owns and operates a business that builds race cars. He also enjoys deer hunting, kayaking, and biking.
