Micheal Leif


Micheal Leif drives the #80 B-Modified Class car.  His home track is Davenport Speedway, but he can also be found racing at Hawkeye Raceway and Jackson County Speedway.  He lives in Fulton, IL.

Team members helping Micheal are:  Mike Leif Sr., Veneta Leif, Sara Sikkema.  Jerry Irvine is the car owner.

He started racing in 2003 in the V-8 Cruiser Class at Hawkeye Raceway because he grew up watching his Dad race and wanted to try he's hooked.  His first race was his first Feature win.  His 2nd Feature win was his 2nd race!  Career highlights include 9 Feature wins in 2003 at Hawkeye Raceway finishing 3rd in the Points, 1 Feature win in 2003 at Quad City Speedway finishing 9th in the Points, 9 Feature wins in 2004 at Hawkeye Raceway finishing 2nd in the Points.

The thrill of racing for Micheal is racing side by side and winning.  His most exciting racing moment was the Feature win at Quad City Speedway, winning the Illowa Challenge for his largest pay check.  He's most proud of when he came in #1 and Dad was #2, seeing both #80 cars in the Winners Circle.

Micheal's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Of racing, Micheal says, "I am 19 years old.  I have raced for 3 years, 2 years I raced in the V-Cruiser Class.  In 2005 I moved up to Hobby Stock Class.  I finished 11th in Points.  My boss, Jerry Irvine, bought a B-Mod and I raced that 5 times at Davenport Speedway with a 4th and 5th place finish.  I look to do better in 2006.  I would like a sponsor that could help a kid.  All the right turns are the hardest!".
