Chad Garrett drives the #44 Late Model
Class car. He lives in Fuguay-Varina, NC. His home track is
Newport Speedway but he can also be found racing at Wake County Speedway.
He started racing in 1992 in the Dirt 4
Cyl Class at Asheville Motor Speedway because it was just in his
blood.......his Dad raced dirt and Drag for 15 years. Career
highlights include 3rd place in Points in Street Stock at Asheville
Speedway in 1996 and 5th place in Points in Late Model at 411 Motor
Speedway in 2001.
The thrill of racing for Chad is the speed
and competition. His most exciting racing moment was two serious
accidents. He's most proud that he has been able to do it for 11
years and he's only 28 years old now. Plus, his Dad and he have had
a lot of fun, even if they weren't able to run another race.
Dale Earnhardt is Chad's racing hero.
Of racing, Chad says, "It is the best
spectator sport going......just go to one race and you will be hooked!".
