Matthew Daniels drives the #18 Crate Late
Model Class car and is racing with the Fastrak Series. He lives
in Woodruff, SC. His home track is Cherokee Super Speedway.
People who have helped Matthew are Tim and Lee Goper, Mom, Dad, Kelly,
Uncle Andy and family members. Danny Daniels (Dad) is the car owner.
Matthew started racing in 2004 in the Late
Model Sportsman Class at Cherokee Super Speedway because he's always loved
racing and wants to make a NASCAR career of it! Career highlights
include 2001 Track Champion in Go-Karts, 2nd place in Points in 2002 and
2003 in Go-Karts and 2nd place in Points at Cherokee Super Speedway last
year in Late Models.
The thrill of racing for Matthew is just
being out there doing what he loves to do. His most exciting racing
moment was the first time he ever sat in a race car, getting ready for his
first race. He's most proud just being out there competing with guys
that are 3 times his age.
Of racing, Matthew says, "That I wish
everybody had an opportunity to do this like I have had!".
