 Joel Couvillion


Joel Couvillion drives the #30 Limited Modified Class car.  His home track is Sabine Motor Speedway but he can also be found racing at Boothill Speedway and Ark-La-Tex Speedway.  He lives in Alexandria, LA.

Team members helping Joel are:  Vance Walters, Stephen Guidry, Greg Hillman, Dougie Murphrey, Bill Morace, Liz Domite, family.

Joel started racing in 1980 in the Go Karts Class at Foresthill Speedway because his family has always raced.  His first win was that same year, in his 2nd time ever driving.  Career highlights include State Champion in '94 & '95 at Foresthill Speedway in the Modified Class, winning the Doug Murphrey Memorial in '08 in a Limited Modified, State Champion at Thunder Valley Speedway in '08.

The thrill of racing for Joel is the love of competition and showing up at different tracks around the world and the adrenaline rush.  His most exciting racing moment was going to a big race starting on the tail of the B and coming to the front, winning it.  He's done this quite a few times and says that is the greatest feeling in the world!  He's most proud of accomplishing the goals he's set and achieving them.

Joel's racing hero is his Father.

Of racing, Joel says, "Don't go out there with a bad attitude and always have it in your mind you can do it.  Remember patience wins!".
