Jimmy races out of Gray Court SC. He
started racing in 1969 in a Cadet at Golden Strip Speedway. He enjoyed
watching as a kid and wanted to go fast. He got his first win in 1970 at
Golden Strip Speedway in the cadet class.
Jimmy won the track championship at Golden
Strip in 1981 in open competition late models, in 1984 at I-85 in a
late model and again at Chester Speedway in 1997.
The speed and power are the thrill of
racing Jimmy. His greatest racing thrill was the first late model
race he ever ran. He has been racing for 33 years and "I am not in the
poor house , yet!" and that is a great accomplishment.
Jimmy plans to run Late Models and sprints
for a couple of years then help some young people get started.
Floyd Powell was his favorite driver.
