A Day in the Life

of Jordan Anderson, NASCAR up-and-comer

Jordan Anderson has drive, in more ways than one. The seventeen-year-old is not only an up-and-coming race-car driver (Humpy Wheeler's The Wheeler Company recently endorsed him), but also a marketing entrepreneur who started self-promoting when he was ten. This year alone, Jordan has raised $60,000 in sponsorship cash. Here's a look at what he does on an average day.

Find out how Anderson got his start in NASCAR, who's his racing hero, and what was his worst racing injury
