The thrill of racing for Thomas is the
win and the speed! His most exciting racing moment was his first
win and having his family there. He's most proud of his family.
They have always been at the track with me every Saturday. His
wife and children, it's been a family sport from the beginning. He
couldn't have done it if they weren't there with him. He remembers
when the kids were really little and being there in their car seats in
Thomas's racing hero is the Good Lord.
He's kept Thomas safe and out of trouble from the start. Thomas
gives Him credit for everything that he has accomplished.
Of racing, Thomas says, 'That it's a fun
sport. It's exciting to race and watch. But without the Good
Lord and your family in your life, it would be nothing. They are
always first in my life and racing comes second!".
