Sheldon started racing in 2007 in the
Super Sprint Class at State Fair Speedway because he had been raised at
the track since he was 4 days old. His Dad has raced his entire
life. Sheldon's first win was in that same year. Career
highlights include when he won his first A Feature in his first year in
a big Sprint car.
The thrill of racing for Sheldon is the
speed and going out on weekends trying to get wins. His most
exciting racing moment was winning A Features at State Fair Speedway
weekly. 3 wins total at that race track. He's most proud of
having top 10's with ASCS with an OKC Spec. Motor and getting the
opportunity to race in general.
Sheldon's racing hero is his Dad.
Of racing, Sheldon says, "If you haven't
got the chance to attend a Sprint car race, do it cuz you'll get
addicted to it after one night!".
