James Batten drives the #21 Late Model
Class car. He lives in Rocky Mount, NC. His home track is
County Line Speedway but he can also be found racing at Wayne County
He started racing in 1981 in the Street
Stock Class at Wilson County Speedway because his Mom was embarrassing
them on the track. James was the 1992 Limited Sportsman Track
Champion and in 2001 he was the Late Model Track Champion.
His most exciting racing moment was his
first win with his step father finishing second. He's most proud of
the trust and respect he gets from the other drivers.
Bill Elliott is James's racing hero.
Of racing, James says, "Get a good sponsor
before you start!".
