C J Duarte


C J Duarte drives the #83 600cc Mini Sprint Class car.  His home track is Cowtown Speedway.  He lives in Burleson, TX.

Team members helping C J are:  Dad-John Duarte, Mom-Pam Duarte, Brother-Vince Duarte.  John and Pam Duarte are the car owners.

C J started racing in 2001 in the Go Karts 3 hp Beginner Class at Cowtown Speedway because he saw races on T.V. when he was very small and like the way the cars sounded.  He also played football with a kid who raced and he had an extra cart and let C J drive it one day and C J was hooked!  His first win was that same year.

The thrill of racing for C J is winning of course.  His most exciting racing moment was when he won his very first race that he ever drove in.  It was a Heat race but it was still a race.  He's most proud of being allowed to race a Mini Sprint at the age of 12. 

C J's racing heroes are George White, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Carl Edwards.

Of racing, C J says, Everyone should experience driving a racecar at least once in their life. "Never give up!  Which was taught to me by Carl Edwards when I met him at TMS last year.  He is really a good guy.
