Meet Tanner

Tanner Carrick is a 22 year old Midget, Sprint Car, and Outlaw Kart racing driver.  Tanner started racing Outlaw Karts at Cycleland Speedway when he was 6 years old with his dad as his crew chief.  Besides California, Tanner has travelled to Oregon, Idaho, Illinois, Montana, North Carolina, Iowa, Texas, and Oklahoma in his Outlaw Kart.  In 2015, he was invited to race in Indiana at the Indy Invitational Outlaw Kart race.

In 2017, Tanner was given the opportunity to drive a midget for Keith Kunz Motorsports in the Midwest.  Tanner’s dedication and passion for racing bring him back home to run the Sprint Car and Outlaw Kart on his off weeks. 

While with KKM, Tanner gained rookie of the year honors and obtained both POWRi and USAC wins.  Tanner continues to race with KKM at select events throughout the year including the Chili Bowl Nationals. In January 2022 Tanner won his first prelim night feature event at the Chili Bowl under KKM, a feat he would repeat in January 2024.


Tanner is currently racing his Carrick Motorsports 360 and 410 Sprint Cars throughout various California series including the Sprint Car Challenge Tour and NARC/King of the West.  Tanner also races his Carrick Motorsports 410 Sprint Car at select World of Outlaws events on the west coast.

In April 2023, Tanner made his debut with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with On Point Motorsports during the Weather Guard Truck Race on Dirt at the famed Bristol Motor Speedway.  

“Running the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Bristol wasn’t something that was really on my radar, and I am really thankful and appreciative that the team at On Point Motorsports reached out,” Tanner Carrick said. “Running on dirt is something that I am really familiar with, so I am really excited for this opportunity and look forward to working with everyone associated with the team.”

In addition to racing, Tanner also enjoys hunting, fishing, and golfing.  Tanner is also a successful business owner/operator of TC Guide Service, specializing in guided fishing and hunting excursions in Northern California.
