 Michael Walrod drives the #711 Stock car at Stuart International Speedway, his home track.

 1997 marks the first year Michael climbed in a Stock car at Stuart. He says he started racing because his dad, the original 711, raced years ago and he had loved it ever since.

Walrod's career highlight is all the friends he's made and people he's met. The thrill of racing for him is going three or four wide. Michael's most exciting racing moment was the first time he ran in the top four; it was Father's Day and he was leading and Jeff Anderson got him out of turn four going for the checker. He looked up to the stands as he passed the flag stand and saw his dad standing and cheering.

 Wombat would like tot thank JR Beaman, Rick Houseman, Nick Houseman, and 23R Roberts Racing.

Michael's racing hero is Richard "The King" Petty.

"If it wasn't for the fans and crew members we wouldn't be able to do this," is what Michael had to say about racing.
