Cody Shane Ware’s career started at the age of 16 years old, when he began racing legends cars. He ran over 50 races his first year in racing, gathering lots of valuable seat time and experience. He traveled throughout the southeast learning a variety of tracks and learning to race in different conditions. The highlight of his rookie year was competing in the summer shootout at charlotte motor speedway in the semi-pro division.
After just one year of racing, Cody took the jump into late models at the age of 17, getting an opportunity to compete on the west coast for the same team that his father drove for years ago. With some adequate experience under his belt, he began racing late model stocks back home in North Carolina in the NASCAR whelen all american series.
