#4

Ben Tunny drives the #4 Late Model Class car.  His home track is Indianapolis Speedrome.  He lives in Fairland, IN.

Team members helping Ben are:  Little Bros, Dad, Grandpa, Family, the Nortons, Mike & Teia Hamblin, Jim Jones, Dean Smith, Bill Betker, and other drivers.

Ben started racing in 2003 in the Late Model Figure 8 Class at Indianapolis Speedrome because he loved racing anything that he could.  His Dad had raced for 20 years or more and it was like his destiny.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include first Oval Feature win in '03 in Late Models 25 lap race, 3rd place finish in Rookie Chase in '03, won a Fall Festival Feature in '03, '04 Carmel Sod Late Model vs. Modified Oval Series Champion, 9th in overall Season Points, '05 4th place finish in overall Points, won 2 Late Model Figure 8 Features, won a Figure 8 in Fall Series, qualifying for the 2006 "Race for the Chase" by being in the Top 10 Speedrome Figure 8 rankings.

The thrill of racing for Ben is the control he has under a machine on 4 out of control wheels.  Just the feeling it creates in him.  His most exciting racing moment were many.  One was running up front in the 3 Hour World Championship.  One was fighting with 2 of the best for the win in the Jake's 150 Figure 8 and the other was trying to hang on to win his first Feature.  He's most proud of making everyone else so proud of him.  He feels like he has really impressed a lot of people and he is proud of that.

Ben's racing heroes are Tony Stewart and his Dad.

Of racing, Ben says, "That it is addicting, fun and a dedication worthwhile.  And people should only do it if they really want to and if they can handle the work it takes!!".
