THOMAS VANDYKE A Driver With His Eye on the Future

Thomas Vandyke drives the #94 Grand Stock at Old Dominion Speedway. His interest in the sport came when he was 7 years old. "My dad built a dirt track in the backyard. We had family and friends come race with us."

When he was 9 he ran his first race at Capital City Speedway in Ashland , Virginia. He also raced the VDkA and WKA series until he was 15. His first win came at that track.

Mr. Vandyke was influenced by his family. "They knew how much I loved the sport" and they are his strongest supporters.

Thomas is now in his second year driving Grand Stock at ODS, which just so happens to be his favorite track. "It is awesome running with experienced drivers such as Robert Bruce, Chris Donnelly, Les Miranda and others, getting seat time and trying to earn respect from my fellow competitors." His ultimate goal is "hopefully pick up a ride in Late Model and go on to Nextel Cup."

Who is his favorite driver on the Nextel Circuit? "Bill Elliott. He was respected on and off the track (that's awesome, Bill.)"

Youngster's yearning to get into motor sports should heed his advice. "You have to sacrifice, work hard and don't give up."

Best of luck to you in the 2006 season, Thomas. You are a fine driver and I am sure your goals will be accomplished.

Thomas' Crew Chief is Tommy Vandyke. The other members of his team are: Larry Johnson, David Rhoades and Misty Gibson.

He is sponsored by: Johnson Garage, Better Bollards, and T&T Racing
