He was impressed by the greatness of America and also knew that NASCAR racing is one of the greatest sports and cultures in the United States.

Shortly after his honeymoon Akinori began starting races in the NASCAR grassroots series in North Carolina. He then moved permanently to the Tar Heel state to continue his focus on racing in 2010. His debut, back in 2004, was with the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. Now, Akinori loves the challenge of being a Japanese native driver in the NASCAR series.
