Frankie Muniz, the former child star who played major roles in “Big Fat Liar,” “Agent Cody Banks” and “Malcolm in the Middle,” is not playing games. At 37 years old, he‘s in the middle of a journey of a lifetime as a full-time racecar driver.

“Maybe they don’t see me as a threat yet, but I’m coming,” Muniz said with a giggle. “This isn’t a fluke.”

The challenge of competing in the ARCA Menards Series — Nascar‘s version of Single-A baseball — is only the beginning as Muniz aims to advance through the rankings with Ford Performance, potentially as early as 2024.

“I know it’s a very lofty goal for me to set, but I want to race in the Cup Series,” Muniz said. “I’m pretty sure every driver probably says that, but I really do. I’m 37 years old, and I’m getting into the sport of stock car racing. I definitely plan on moving up, and the plan is to move up to Xfinity or the Truck Series next year.
