Street Class at Mid America Raceway because he loves racing....the feel,
sound, smell and going fast. His first win was in that same year.
The thrill of racing for Tom is winning
for Christ. His most exciting racing moment was when a Buddy blew
up right next to Tom at the finish, just about taking Tom out.
Fortunately, his Buddy was not hurt. He's most proud of not
wrecking when his girlfriend, Kelly, wears a bikini top. It's his
Mom's old car, started as a 6 cyl.

Of racing, Tom says, "Do it for yourself
and your family. It's good, clean fun!".
