Donovan Stott – Columbus, NC
When I say that I grew up at the dragstrip what I mean is that I “literally” grew up at the dragstrip! I grew up watching my dad, Mitch Stott from as early as I can remember.

Quick & Dirty

Pale Rider

Shannon Smith – Gowensville, SC
As an impressionable young boy in the 1960s, I watched my dad race a pale yellow 55 Chevy at our local tracks. Then at 11 years of age, my dad gave me my first car, you guessed it, a 1955 Chevy.
