Zach began racing at age 12 when he was “discovered” by former IndyCar Series team owner Sarah Fisher’s dad, Dave Fisher. In 19 months Zach had gone from go-karts to the cockpit of an open-wheel Formula BMW machine. Near the end of 2009, while testing a Formula BMW, Atlantic Championship team owner Eric Jensen signed Zach to his team for the 2010 Atlantic Championship season. In early March 2010, the Series halted operations.
Zach moved up the ladder starting in 2011. First to Formula 5000 then up to USF 2000 followed by his move to Star Mazda to Indy Lights in 2013.
He drove in Indy Lights in 2013 and 2014. Zach took 2015 working on moving to IndyCar. While things stalled he was a member of the IMS Radio Network where he di a super job as driver analyst for the Indy Lights practice, qualifying and the races.
In 2016 Zach was offered a drive with Belardi Auto Racing. For his 3 years in Indy Lights and 44 races Zach has 27 top 5 finishes, including 6 wins (3 in 2016) with series points finishes of 7th, 3rd and 4th in 2016.
