McCallister Precision Marketing announced on Thursday they have signed up-and-coming driver Timmy “Mini” Tyrell to their client roster.

And don’t let Tyrrell’s age fool you. At age 11, he is already more successful than some drivers four times his age.

At the age of four, Tyrrell began racing go-karts at his home track in Manassas, Va. By the age of seven he was winning championships with his go-kart and setting his sights to the top racing divisions and at nine years old, became the youngest person to compete in a full size Late Model car. Just one year later he claimed the record for the youngest person in the world to win a Late Model Stock Car race — completing the impressive feat with a win at Shenandoah Speedway.

While his on track performance is impressive enough, Tyrrell’s off track accomplishments are even more impressive. Through his fundraising program, Mini’s Mission, the young driver has raised over $367,000 for pediatric cancer research and other causes. He has been featured on NBC Nightly News and The Steve Harvey Show because of his charitable contributions, and even caught the attention of NASCAR star Jeff Gordon, partnering with the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation.

“We are elated to be joining MPM Marketing,” said Tyrrell. “My family and I spoke with Tonya [McCallister] months back and decided that this is the best decision for my racing career.”

McCallister, the founder of MPM, is excited to add a young and talented man like Tyrrell to the MPM family.

“Mini is not only an extremely talented driver, but also an extraordinary young man,” said McCallister. “His stats alone are astonishing, but when you combine them with the passion he has for his charitable work, it makes him even more special.”
