Raceway. Career highlights include Championship in Sportsman in
Fall Classic wins in '05 and '09 at VMS.
The thrill of racing for Tim is running
side by side lap after lap for position. His most exciting racing
moment was coming from the rear to win with a last lap turn 4 pass. He's
most proud of '08 Championship and the Fall Classic wins.
Tim's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt Sr.
Of racing, Tim says, "Do it for
fun. When it gets to not be fun, either quit or find the fun again!".
