Butch Hunter


Butch Hunter drives the #40 Flyer Class car.  His home track is Farley Speedway but he can also be found racing at West Liberty Speedway.  He lives in Monticello, IA.

Team members helping Butch are:  Nic McElmeel, Gary Hughes, Luke McElmeel, Dustin.

He started racing in 2004 in the Flyer Class at Farley Speedway because it's been in his family for close to 50 years. 

The thrill of racing for Butch is the competition and the fans.  His most exciting racing moment was his last race in '04 when he hit the wall with his drivers side door coming out of turn 4 and collapsed a lung.  The same night he won his first Heat race.

Butch's racing heroes are his Grandpa Tom Hughes and all his uncles who have raced before him.

Of racing, Butch says, "Racing is fun but it takes a lot of dedication and be sure to make time for your family!".
