Casey Kepley Jr.
Casey Kepley, Jr. drives the #3 Limited
Late Model Class car. He lives in Winston-Salem, NC. His home
track is Caraway Speedway but he can also be found racing at Hickory and
Casey's #3 car is the red, silver, and fluorescent
yellow Chevy, Hall Race Cars, Banks Engines.
He started racing in 1997 in the Street
Stock Class at Bowman Gray Stadium because his father raced so as soon as
he could, he started. His first win was in 2001 in the Limited Late
Model at Caraway Speedway. Career highlights include his first win
and leading in the Points for half of the season until his finances got
short. Without the money, it's been hard to keep going.
The thrill of racing for Casey is the
competition mostly but he likes controlling something that is out of
control! His most exhilarating racing moment was his first win as
his father was in the hospital and Casey wasn't sure his father would make
it plus all the hard work that went into winning. He's most proud
that he's a fierce competitor but also a clean driver.
Dale Earnhardt is Casey's racing hero.
Of racing, Casey says, "That it's a
blast but be safe!".
