Pop Booker drives the #4 Modified Class car.  His home track is Southern Raceway but he can also be found racing at Phenix City, 5 Flags and Deep South Dirt Speedway.  He lives in Gulf Breeze, FL.

Team members helping Pop are:  Terrel Hayes, Kaitlyn Hayes, Jay. 

Pop started racing in 1965 in the Street Stock Class at H B Speedway because he just loved it.  His first win was in '65 in the Street Stock Class at Hwy 90 Speedway.  Career highlights include finishing 3rd in the Championship at Hwy 90 Speedway, finishing 2nd in the Championship at Southern Raceway and possible 2nd in '12.

The thrill of racing for Pop is that it's better than grass.  His most exciting racing moment was at Phenix City running on used tires from Buddy White and running on 7 cylinders.  He's most proud of having his wife with him always be his side.

Pop's racing hero is Jeff Gordon.

Of racing, Pop says, "Get with it, it's a natural high!".
