Roger Pate drives the Super Late Model
Class car. He lives in Inman, SC. His home track is Cherokee
Speedway but he can also be found racing at Laurens County Speedway.
He started racing in 1988 in the Baby
Bomber Class at I-85 Speedway because it cost to much to run Go-Karts.

In 1998 and 1999 Roger was the Track Champion at Cherokee Speedway in
Thunder & Lightning.
The thrill of racing for Roger is the fans
and the speed. He's most proud of being able to meet new people and
work with a fine crew that's willing to help him.
Dale Earnhardt is Roger's racing hero.
Of racing, Roger says, "If you ever get a
chance to race, go for it!".
