 Matthew Cauthen


Matthew Cauthen drives the #18 Pure Street Class car.  He lives in Kershaw, SC.  His home track is Lancaster Speedway but can also be found racing at Sumter Speedway.

Team members helping Matthew are:  Kenneth, Knox, Kevin, Buck and Cheeks.  Kenneth Cauthen is the car owner.

He started racing in 2002 in the Pure Street Class at Lancaster because he enjoyed going to the races and watching so decided to try it himself.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include getting two trophies in one for his first win and one for finishing 4th in the Points in 2005.

The thrill of racing for Matthew was flipping his car one week and coming back the next week, side by side racing, bouncing off the wall and winning his first race with a flat tire!  His most exciting racing moment was winning his first race with his Mom and Dad and friends watching after flipping the week before.  He won with no front fender, no bumper and a right rear flat tire!  He's most proud of he and his Father working together to do most of the work themselves.

Dale Earnhardt Sr. is Matthew's racing hero.

Of racing, Matthew says, "Sit back and hold on.  Nobody knows the thrill of a race track until you are behind the wheel and going wide open!".
