If you are a race-car enthusiast and hold a Class A commercial driver's license (CDL), consider working as a race-car transporter. Race-car transporters deliver vehicles to racing venues and work closely with both the driver and crew. Before working as a race-car transporter, it's a good idea to build you experience with auto transportation. This means you might have to work other driving jobs within the automobile industry, as race cars can be extremely delicate and must only be transported by experienced and trained personnel.
