The son of New England fan favorite Mike “Magic Shoes” McLaughlin, Max McLaughlin has followed in his father’s footsteps as a hard-charging stock car racer. Max looked impressive during his limited 2020 schedule, finishing no worse than seventh over five ARCA Menards Series starts, the highlight coming at Bristol where he led 19 laps and crossed the line third. Max picked up his only ARCA Menards Series East win to date at Watkins Glen in 2019, decisively leading every lap before inclement weather forced the race to end early.
