 Tyler Vande Kamp


Tyler Vande Kamp drives the #51 Modified Class car.  His home track is Knoxville Raceway but he can also be found racing at Oskaloosa Southern Iowa Speedway, Mountain Dew Bloomfield Speedway and Wapello County Fairgrounds.  He lives in Ankeny, IA.

Team members helping Tyler are:   Mom, Dad, Megan, John, Craig, Toby, Brittany, and Ben.

Tyler started racing in 2006 at Wapello County Fairgrounds in the A-Mod class because he'd been involved with racing since he was 4 months old.  His first win in 2010 in the A-Mod class at 34 Raceway in Burlington, Iowa.  Career highlights include his first win, 2012 Bloomfield Speedway Track Championship, and beating David Murray Jr. and Michael Long in Heat Races.

The thrill of racing for Tyler is the competition.  His most exciting racing moment was making the A-main in the Modifieds at the Late Model Nationals from the tail of the B-Main in 2010.  He is most proud of their Track Championship.

Tyler's racing hero is Doug Wolfgang.

Of racing, Tyler says, "It isn't cheap or easy, but it's the most fun I've ever had!".
