Super Late Model rookie Ethan Dotson of Bakersfield, Calif., has signed a multiyear contract with team owner Brett Coltman of Maysfield, Ga.-based Coltman Farms Racing to run Super Late Models full time in 2024, the team announced today.
The 24-year-old Dotson (pictured), currently the house car driver for the Longhorn Chassis modified program, will continue part-time competition in the company’s modified while transitioning to Coltman’s Super Late Model program.
“I’m super excited to partner with such good people and I’m really looking forward to running full time next year in Supers,” Dotson said. “This is something I have worked for my entire life, and I am beyond thrilled for the opportunity.”
Along with an impressive modified resume, Dotson’s 2023 success in Late Models for Chris Bragg Racing includes two victories on the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series. He has made 25 Super Late Model feature starts in 2024 with seven top-10 finishes.
