Travis started racing in 1999 in the
Pure Stock Class at Volusia Speedway Park because his Father raced and
Travis helped his Dad out. He gained interest, got a good deal on
a Pure Stock and decided to hop in the seat. His first win was
that same year. Career highlights include 2006 Mini Stock Champion
at Volusia Speedway Park, 10 wins at Volusia in '06.
The thrill of racing for Travis is just
having fun, keeping the car in one piece and finishing in the top 5.
His most exciting racing moment was racing side by side for a few laps
to Victory Lane rather than walking away from the field of cars.
He's most proud of the entire '06 racing season at Volusia Speedway Park
and winning the Mini Stock Championship at Volusia Speedway Park.
Travis's racing hero is his Dad, Charlie
