Roger Lankford

#K 70

Roger Lankford drives the #70 Super Late Model Class car.  His home track was Friendship Speedway but now is the SAS Carolina Clash Series.  He lives in Millers Creek, NC.

Team members helping Roger are:  Crew Chief - Tommy Lankford, Richard Curtis, Zachary Lankford and Keisha Dooley.  Roger would like to thank Ronald Blankenship and Larry Blankenship.

He started racing in 1994 in the 4 Cylinder class at Friendship Speedway because his Dad always loved racing and Roger had wanted to race since he was 5 years old.  His first win was in 1998 in the Limited Late Model Class at Friendship Speedway.  Career highlights include making the 1989 Daytona 500 as a Crew member for the late J.D. McDuffie.  Roger's first win was Labor Day Monday night race.  Finishing 2nd in the Points in 1998, ran 2 less races and than the Champion.

The thrill of racing for Roger is the competition, trying to out think the other guy!  His most exciting racing moment was his daughter, Keisha, falling asleep, holding the Labor Day Trophy, on the way home.   He's most proud of he and his brother, Tommy, being able to win races win a lot less money, being competitive and earning respect from my fellow drivers.

Roger's racing heroes are Richard Petty and J.D. McDuffie.

Of racing, Roger says, "It's a good family sport and it's all I've ever wanted to do!".
