David Laughlin, Jr. drives the #77 Rolling
Thunder Asphalt Modified Class car. He lives in Hubert, NC.
His home track is Coastal Plains Raceway but he can also be found racing
at the Series home track which is South Boston, and East Carolina Motor
He started racing in 2000 in the Street
Stock Class at Coastal Plains Raceway because he'd loved it all his life.
Career highlights include during his first race, the trans stuck in 4th
gear, causing David to start from the rear in a 29 car field, ending up
5th in a 30 lap race.
The thrill of racing for David is going
fast and turning left. His greatest thrill is the motivation he gets
every time he gets in the car. His thrill now is running for Rookie
of the Year and the Championship in the Modifieds. He's most proud
of having the opportunity to race and hopefully his first championship.
David's racing hero is Jeff Gordon.
Of racing, David says, "You can never have
to many toys, that's both hot rods and tools!".
