In 2015 Tuttle took a one year sabbatical from driving to get his Sportsman car ready for competition. He made his debut in Novice Sportsman at Ransomville last season, competing in the last seven races of the year. Tuttle is competing full time at Ransomville in 2017. Tuttle is grateful to his parents, Kirk and Holly Tuttle, as well as his uncle Don Anderson for their full support of his racing career. During this past offseason, Kirk Tuttle obtained and totally prepared a new Sportsman car for his son for this season.
