Where are you from?
I grew up in Cleveland, OH and now I live in Chandler, AZ
When did you start racing?
I started racing in a pure stock at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, OH at 19 years of age. I only raced 5 races before I stuffed it into the wall and ended that car. Then I raced shifter karts all over the country. Then I met Jace Denmark-Gessel and he introduced me to the US Legend Cars and INEX racing.
The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be buzzing with activity on Saturday night when the short track hosts its immensely popular Night of Fire, which will include one of the valley’s most majestic fireworks displays.
In addition to a full schedule of racing and fireworks, the special night will include a Full Send Cleaning Skid Plate Car race.
Las Vegas racing legend Chris Trickle was saluted Saturday night at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with more sensational short-track racing in the “Chris Trickle Classic” at the fast 3/8-mile paved oval as Tanner Reif and Justin Johnson repeated with top honors.
With the Trickle family in attendance as a tribute to son, Chris’ legacy, the wild wheel-to-wheel competition continued in the sixth round of the 10-event Bullring series with the teenager Reif and the veteran Johnson taking their respective 30-lap main events in the Sigma Performance Services Pro Late Model feature and the NASCAR Power Grade Inc. Modified finale.
