Olen started racing in 2000 in the GT
Asphalt Class at South America Circuit because he'd been around all
forms of racing since the age of 9. Career highlights include when he started
Asphalt in the GT Classes and finished 3rd, 4th or 5th, racing in the
foot hills of Jamaica and in Barbados. Olen had the honor of
racing in many races, side by side with is Father-In-Law who was the
1969 GT Champion.
The thrill of racing for Olen is being
alone in that seat behind the wheel at a high rate of speed.
His most exciting racing moment was starting out last in a back up car,
going down the front straight wide open and passing 10 cars for 3rd in a
half of one lap. He's most proud that he's finished building his
Limited Modified car, by himself, over the last 4 years. Villareal
did the frame and roll cage, one of the last cars he put out.
Olen's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt Sr.
Of racing, Olen says, "Racing is
not just a sport, it is a desire in life that is a must that most are
born with. Never look back, keep going forward and be positive
even in your worst hour!".
