Eric Hamilton drives the #16H Modified Class car.  His home track is Macon Speedway but he can also be found racing at Farmer City Raceway and Lincoln Speedway.  He lives in Macon, IL.

Team members helping Eric are:  Big B, Earl, Mom, Dad. 

Eric started racing in 1998 in Go Karts at Cerro Gordo Speedway and in '08 in Modified at Macon Speedway because his Dad raced in the '70's and '80's and Uncle Rick's been racing since he was born so it runs in his blood.  His first win was in '99 in the Go Kart Class at Cerro Gordo Speedway.  Career highlights include Points Champion in Go Karts, finishing 3rd in Points in Modified at Macon Speedway in '11 which was his 3rd year.

The thrill of racing for Eric is the adrenaline rush of going fast side by side with other cars.  His most exciting racing moment was racing Jeremy Nicols Modified battling with the leaders for the lead until popping a tire.  He's most proud of getting little bit better each year.

Eric's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt.

Of racing, Eric says, "The best sport around and get to spend a lot of time with your family going to the tracks!".
