 Trent Young


Trent Young drives the #116 Modified Class car.  His home track is Cedar Ridge Speedway.  He lives in Hopkinsville, KY.

Team members helping Trent are:  Girlfriend - Kelsey, Dillion, Justin, Levi, Ray Ray, Dad.  Timmy Powell is the car owner.

Trent started racing in 1998 in the Street Stock Class at Soggy Bottoms Speedway because his Dad raced so it was just in his blood.  His first win was in '99 in the Modified Class at Western Kentucky Speedway.  Career highlights include 25 Feature wins at 9 different tracks in 3 cars in '12.

The thrill of racing for Trent is the speed, competition and winning against guys with ten times the budget.  His most exciting racing moment was out running Austin Dillon at Volusia County Speedway in '12.  He's most proud of running well against the fastest cars in the country.

Trent's racing hero is Ken Schrader.

Of racing, Trent says, "It's expensive and not as easy as it looks!".
