Phil Williams drives the #55
Chevy Camero in the T&L class at Florence Motor Speedway. He is 39 years
old and lives in Sumter, SC.
He started racing
in 1998 in the Pure Stock class at Sumter Speedway. His first win on Dirt
came in 2001. He won a total of 4 races in 2001 and 2002 with a 2nd place
finish in the points standings in 2002.
After being out of
racing for a couple of years due to military commitments, he returned to
racing in 2005 at the Florence Motor Speedway. In his first year on
pavement, he managed 3 wins and a 2nd place finish in the
2006 Phil had a
great year. He won 5 races and finished second 5 times. In the 16 races
he ran this season he finished 14 of them in the top 4. The only down
side to his season was his finish in the points. Due to an injury, Phil
was unable to compete in the final 3 races of the season taking away any
chance he had for a Championship. Phil plans to be able to compete in the
2007 season and put his #55 Chevy Camero back in victory lane.
The thrill of
racing for Phil is racing hard and winning. His greatest thrill was his
first win on both dirt and pavement.
(wife and car owner), Ricky Hair and Julie Hair, Warren Williams (Father),
and Clarence Hair have helped in Phil's racing program.
Terry LaBonte is
his racing hero.
Phil's quote is
"Go fast, turn left and have fun!”
