Diligently working towards a dream career in motorsports, 24-year-old Tyler Cooke has begun his steps towards motorsports stardom. Cooke caught the racing bug early in life, as his grandfather had a late-model team where Cooke spent a lot of time both at the shop and at the track. After humble beginnings running a go-kart built by Cooke's father in a local school parking lot, the Plantation, Florida native showed promise at the St. Lucie Dirt Go Kart track scoring two wins and a third place finish in his first season. Cooke was also a four-time pro shifter kart champion at the Homestead Karting facility.
From there, the rising talent moved from shifter karts to the MAZDA MX5 series. Moving through a variety of series, Cooke's goal of competing in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series full time was realized in 2012 when he signed with Freedom Autosport. After just one season, Cooke moved on to race for BimmerWorld Racing and has continued to do so.
In more recent years, Cooke has taken advantage of downtime during the IMSA schedule to race overseas in the 24 hours of Nurburgring.
