Levi grew up in the small town of Dodge City, KS where he watched his dad, Brian Shirley race stock cars and developed a passion for racing. When Levi was just nine, he got behind the wheel and started out in go-kart racing at the local tracks. At thirteen, Levi moved up to miniature stock cars where he won multiple races and capped the season off by winning the overall points in 2005. In 2008, at fifteen, he proved he had what it takes to compete and finished his first season racing in the XORRA where he consistently placed in the top ten. The following year, proving his accomplishments were no fluke, Levi became the youngest driver to ever win an XORRA event. Returning to the podium multiple times in 2009 placing 3rd in the XORRA points in both the East and West Coast Series. In 2010, Levi not only graduated from high school but also became the Colorado Hill Climb Associations’ Rookie of the Year. Now Levi is a full time college student and races all over the country competing in the Ultra 4 , Dirt Riot , and the Outlaw Desert Racing Series. In 2011 Levi finished 7th in the overall points for the Ultra 4 Series and was also voted “Sportsman of the Year” unanimously by all competing drivers.
