We feel he has a lot of potential. “He’s been successful in a variety of racing venues and we anticipate continued success for him at this level of competition McAnally said. “We look forward to an exciting season with him, and our entire lineup of talented young drivers.”

“I drove for BMR and Toyota at Sonoma last year and we were really competitive,” Alan said. “Bill’s success year after year speaks for itself. From the mechanics in the shop putting together great equipment to the crews at the track, it’s just a great team atmosphere and I’m fortunate to get to be a part of it. I know with BMR and Toyota I will have the car I need to compete for wins and the championship.”

In addition to racing, Alan also attends the University of Alabama.

“Education is important for success” Alan said. “And nowhere is that more true than in racing. There’s always something new to learn in this sport if you want to compete at a high level. So, for me it was never a question of school or racing, it was just about having the dedication to do both.”

Alan’s, primary sponsor AUTOParkit, is a division of Dasher Lawless Automation, a company that specializes is the design, manufacturing, construction and operation of fully automated parking structures.

“AUTOParkit has been with me since the start of my career and I’m proud to be able to continue that partnership,” explained Alan.

We’re fortunate to have him.” We know our messaging is much better received when we host race experiences for our developers and architects.”
