About Us

The Pace Lap is devoted to NASCAR and its’ related events, written and designed by two of NASCAR’s youngest reporters. The Pace Lap was started in mid March 2011 by Branden Williams after inspirations both at and away from the track. While covering the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Branden met Nathan Butler, a college student from Charlotte, N.C. A friendship was immediately established, leading to a business relationship that has flourished over time.

The Pace Lap has since expanded, bringing in four additional writers.
