Eddie started racing in 1988 in the Mini
Stock Class at Pulaski County Speedway because it was safer to race on
the track instead of the street. Career highlights include
finishing in the top 10 in Points in 2003 after being in a bad accident
on his job in 1999 and was thought to never be able to walk again.
The thrill of racing for Eddie is just
the thrill of it. His most exciting racing moment is every week
running against the best drivers and cars around. He's most proud
of getting back in a race car after being in a wheel chair.
Of racing, Eddie says, "It's safer than
driving on the interstate!".
