Kaleb started racing in 2011 in the
Sportsman Class at Fayette County Speedway because his Grandpa and Dad
raced and he really thought it would be something to be a 3rd generation
driver. His first win was that same year. Career highlights
include Heat Race win at Fayette County Speedway, coming from 20th place
to 5th place at Macon Speedway in '12.
The thrill of racing for Kaleb is going
fast! His most exciting racing moment was winning a 3 wide Heat
Race against Michael Posley and Zack Jordan off Turn 4 at Fayette County
Speedway. He's most proud of winning a Heat Race faster than his
Kaleb's racing heroes are a tie between
his Dad and Grandpa (Kaleb took his old number).
Of racing, Kaleb says, "It's one wild
ride and it's worth every penny!".
