Kent Peckham drives the #75 NDRA Crate Late Model Class car.  His home track is I-77 Speedway.  He lives in Statesville, NC.

Team members helping Kent are:  Chris and Kyle. 

Kent started racing in '83 in the NDRA Crate Late Model Class at I-77 Speedway because his Uncle raced and Kent was hooked at the age of 5 years old.  His first wins were WKA Go Karts, Dirt Modified Sportsman, NDRA Crate Late Models at Genesee Speedway, 311 Speedway, Elkin Speedway Lancaster Speedway and Carolina Speedway.  Career highlights include '94 & '95 Track Championship at Genesee Speedway, '09 & '11 Track Championship at Friendship Motor Speedway.

The thrill of racing for Kent is getting to do something that you have a blast at.  His most exciting racing moments are all wins.  He's most proud that his wife and son help do what it takes to let him race.

Kent's racing heroes are A J Foyt and Richard Petty.

Of racing, Kent says, "It's never as easy as it looks!".
