The thrill of racing for Tanner is the adrenaline rush from the speed and competing against drivers a lot older with more experience.  His most exciting racing moment was finishing 2nd in Points at Hammerdown Speedway.  He's most proud of being alive to do it and his Grandpa healthy and able to be with him to work on his car.  Also, making him proud of Tanner.

Of racing, Tanner says, "It's a great adrenaline rush that is a lot harder than it looks!".
