History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Justin Boston page on 16 February 2021, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Justin Boston is an American former professional stock car racing driver. A former development driver for Joe Gibbs Racing, he most recently drove the No. 54 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Boston was the Rookie of the Year in the ARCA Racing Series driving for Venturini Motorsports in 2013.

Born to parents Robert M. "Bob" and Caron, Boston is a native of Sparks, MD and Towson, MD, both suburbs of Baltimore. Boston is one of the few professional race car drivers from the state of Maryland. Boston's racing interests were sparked with a dirt bike birthday present at age five, and he would begin his career running motocross in the late 1990s. Boston would practice at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, but would often travel 8–14 hours to get to races in other states. By age 13, he had collected over 300 wins across the country. Boston quit motocross after an incident in which his bike hit him in the head, breaking his helmet and lacerating his face. He began his transition to stock car racing at age 16 after attending a race at Dover International Speedway, and proceeded to enroll at the Buck Baker Racing School in Charlotte, outclassing his fellow students. Boston began his stock car career in Legends Cars, then ran six races in the USAR Pro Cup Series in 2009, with four top 10 finishes. Supported by Turner Scott Motorsports, he proceeded to run in the UARA-STARS late-model series, making the commute from Maryland to Charlotte every weekend. Shortly after enrolling in Washington College, Boston made a full commitment to his racing career, moving to Charlotte. His support, however dried up and he spent 2010 and 2011 out of the sport.

Boston attended high school at the Boys' Latin School of Maryland. Boston's father Bob is the co-founder of Zloop Electronic Recycling, which had sponsored his race efforts from 2013 to 2015. In 2015, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
