Tom Filkins


Tom is 38 years old and from West Frankfort Il.  Mt Vernon is his home track. 

Tom began racing in 1982 in a bomber at I57 in Benton Il. He was a die hard race fan. His father had raced years ago in a 1938 'B" car. 

He got his first win in a sportsman in 1982 at I57. 

Tom was 4th in the points in a 1978 Camero in 2000.

The thrill of racing for Tom is to win and to help other drivers.

His greatest racing thrill was to see his son race and have the support of his mom and dad.

His greatest racing moment is passing the boys with $$$.

Mathew Nichole, Lisa and mom and dad and Bonnie and Joe Jr. all help.

Johnney Pal, and Bob Melvin Sr are his racing heroes.
