Frankie Muniz Opens Up On Putting His Career Into Fifth Gear, Why He’s Chasing Victory Lane

Frankie Muniz is ready to start his engine and pursue his dream of a professional stock-car racing championship and will get to do that officially starting in February at Daytona International Speedway.

Muniz, the former child actor who starred in “Malcolm in the Middle,” “Big Fat Liar” and “Agent Cody Banks,” announced in January he would be racing in the ARCA Menards Series full-time starting this year, beginning with the Daytona race on Feb. 18. He will be competing in the No. 30 Ford Mustang for Rette Jones Racing.

The 37-year-old Muniz will be a newcomer in the ARCA Series but isn’t a novice when it comes to auto racing. He got his start in open-wheel racing in the mid-2000s before he joined the stock-car scene.

He raced in Formula BMW USA and Champ Car Atlantic Series. He said his journey was unlike most racers.

“To be honest, I don’t have a typical story of people who become race car drivers,” Muniz explained to Fox News Digital. “I was just a race fan. I think it’s one of those things that people say, like ‘Oh, I want to be a race car driver’ but how do you actually become a race car driver if your family is never involved in it and all that.
