Chad Paxton drives the #16 Late Model Class car.  His home track is I-77 Speedway but he can also be found racing at Lancaster Speedway and Carolina Speedway.  He lives in Troutman, NC.

Team members helping Chad are:  Eddie Munn, Tommy Brownfield, Larry Crolley, Beau Paxton, Mike Stacey and Josh Newman.  Doug, Brian and Cindy Marturano are the car owners.

Chad started racing in 1989 in the Street Stock class at Louisville Speedway because he grew up watching his Dad race in the Arca Series in the '70's and '80's.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include '01 Friendship Speedway Late Model Champion, '06 & '07 Lancaster Speedway Late Model Champion, $5,000 to win I-77 Shrine Race win in '08.

The thrill of racing for Chad is the speed and winning.  His most exciting racing moment was after finishing 3rd in the Pop Pursley Memorial in '08 at I-77 Speedway, the team loaded the car and headed across the river to Lancaster Speedway.  We arrived just in time for the Feature.  After starting last, we came all the way through the field to win.  He's most proud of being able to build and maintain his own cars which led to the current team.  He drives for Sandwood Racing.

Chad's racing hero is Ken Schrader.

Of racing, Chad says, "If you want to make a little money racing, start with a lot!".
