Kent Petrea drives the #K2 Limited Late
Model Class car. His home track is I-77 Speedway but he can also
be found racing at Carolina Speedway and Cherokee Super Speedway.
He lives in Concord, NC.
Team members helping Kent are:
Chris Petrea - brother, Tammy Petrea - wife, Jonathan Petrea - son,
Justin Timmons, Jimmy Davis and Dennis Kirk.
Kent started racing in 1987 in the Baby
Bomber Class at I-85 Speedway in Greer, SC following in a family
member's footsteps (Billy Scott) and he'd been around racing all his
life. His first win was in the Baby Bomber Class at Buffalo
Speedway. Career highlights include running the Big 10 Series on
asphalt Late Model. Every win is as good as the last one!
The thrill of racing for Kent is speed
and winning. His most exciting racing moment was Bud 50 leading
big Thunder & Lightning race at Cherokee Super Speedway, lost water hose
with 3 laps to go! Also was biggest disappointment!
Kent's racing hero is Billy Scott.
Of racing, Kent says, "I can tell you
how to get a small fortune....start with a big one! Happy getting
to run Late Models!".
