quarter midget racing, where he'd won about twenty five races and two championships. He moved into racing late models in the North Carolina area just a month after getting his driver's licence, where he won about fifty seven races and four championships. He discontinued racing late models when he was twenty three, where he got a call from NASCAR, wanting him to be a part of their new series, the Craftsman Truck Series (now known as the Camping World Truck Series).

NASCAR Craftsman/Camping World Truck Series (1995-Present)Edit

Masterson was one of the drivers in the newly developed NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, where he'd won his first NASCAR race (and first ever Truck Series race) at Phoenix International Raceway. He went to win five more times in the 1995 season at Bakersfield, Bristol, Martinsville, Sonoma and again at the season-finisher at Phoenix.

In 1996, Masterson got into a two season rivarly with Truck Series driver Tristan Bobsled, where if Masterson won a race, Tristan was second, and vice versa, and it extended off the track where Bobsled was quoted in saying about Masterson 'punk a$$ loser who shouldn't step foot at a race track', and Masterson was quoted in saying about Bobseld, 'he's a dumba$$ in anything that goes the speeds like these trucks do. If he moves up to the Busch Grand National (now known as the Nationwide) Series, and even the Winston Cup (now known as Sprint Cup) Series, then, the head guys up in NASCAR are plain morons'. Beause of what Masterson said, he was fined $50, 000, but wasn't 'banned' from any of the Truck races. At the end of the 1996 season, Masterson has eight wins, but zero poles, the only season in his career (thus far) that he hasn't recieved any poles.

Combined in 1997 to 2000, he'd recieved 12 poles and thirty seven wins.

In 2001, Masterson was the 'mentor' to new-comer Summer Keselowski, the first driver he has ever helped with in terms of jump-starting their career. In 2001, he hadd recieved eight wins and three poles.

From 2002 to 2011, Masterson had recieved 84 wins and fourty one poles.

In 2011, Masterson had his contract extended for eight years with Darren Smith Motorsports, which would have Masterson race till 2019.

Personal LifeEdit

In December of 1999, Masterson has married his fiancée of twelve years Natasha Stinger, and has three kids with her, Brittney Megan (born August 21, 2000), Kyle Jones (born November 22, 2002) and Clarissa Makayla (born May 12, 2005)

Masterson currently resides in Orlando, Florida with his wife and children.
