Jade Avedisian Racing Odyssey with Toyota Racing Development

Jade Avedisian Racing Odyssey: Jade Avedisian secures an extended journey with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) in a multi-year commitment, marking a pivotal phase in her racing career. Hailing from California, Avedisian will continue her progression across dirt and pavement racing under the Toyota Racing umbrella.

The upcoming 2024 motorsports season will witness Avedisian’s spirited participation in USAC National Midget and XTREME National Midget races with Keith Kunz Motorsports (KKM). She will further embrace the Toyota GR Cup schedule with Nitro Motorsports, initiating her venture into pavement racing and gaining invaluable exposure on road courses. ExxonMobil, a key partner with TRD, will prominently feature on Avedisian’s pursuits, with additional sponsorships yet to be unveiled.

Expressing her gratitude, Avedisian remarked, “I’m deeply honored to advance my racing journey with Toyota Racing and their driver development program. The support and resources provided by Toyota have been instrumental in chasing my racing dreams. This commitment is immensely meaningful, and I’m incredibly thankful to the entire TRD team for their belief in me!”

The 17-year-old racer carved her name in history throughout 2023 while competing with KKM. Avedisian’s remarkable achievements include being the first woman to clinch a podium finish on a Chili Bowl preliminary night and securing the Rookie of the Year accolade as the sole rookie among over 80 qualifiers for the main event. Recently, she made history again by becoming the inaugural woman to seize a national dirt midget championship, claiming the 2023 Xtreme Outlaw Midget title through a stellar season boasting five victories and 16 top-five finishes across 29 events.
