Charlie started racing in 1993 in the
Street Stock Class at New Paris Speedway because his Dad raced and it is
interesting. His first win was that same year. Career
highlights include '96 A Feature win at Baer Field Speedway, '98 3 out
of 4 Features in May at New Paris Speedway, '98 Street Stock Track
Champion at New Paris Speedway, '06 New Paris Speedway 100 Lap Blowout
The thrill of racing for Charlie is the
speed and improving the car and improving the chassis. His most
exciting racing moment was being 19th fastest out of 350 cars at
Kalamazoo Speedway Super Show locked in the 20 car A Feature, and ran in
the Dealers Choice Race '02 & '03. He's most proud of his Street
Stock Championship in '98 at New Paris Speedway, winning 21 races total
in '06 (3 Features, 11 Heat races and 7 B Features).
