Nathanial Sparks:

Nathanial Sparks was born in Birmingham, Alabama, but now calls Sebring, Florida, home. He is a dedicated racing car driver and an avid sportsman. Motorsports attracted him at an early age.  This soon became a passion after he drove his father’s sports car for the first time. He completed his first HPDE (High-Performance Drivers Education) at age 16.  Then he became hooked on the sport of racing.  Starting in the Spec Miata series, he learned the ropes and gained experience.  Also, his accomplishments include 3 time champion of the East Coast Teen Mazda Challenge.  Additionally, he won the 2011 NASA National Spec Miata Championship. After winning the NASA Nationals, Nathanial and his father built an MX-5 Cup car to compete in the 2012 season.

Going forward, his accomplishments include 3 time champion of the East Coast Teen Mazda Challenge.  Additionally, he won the 2011 NASA National Spec Miata Championship. Nathanial and his father built an MX-5 Cup car to compete in the 2012 season.   Throughout the season until the MX-5 Cup race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, “Nathanial Sparks Motorsports” was a family operation. Sick Sideways added him to the team shortly after the race in Canada. He has settled in easily with the team and is looking forward to another great MX-5 Cup season.
