racing and it grew from there. His first win was in 2005 in the
Mini Sprint Class at Thunder Valley Raceway. Career highlights

The thrill of racing for Corey is the
rush, getting to do what he does and knowing a lot of other people who
love to do it too. His most exciting racing moment was with two
laps to go in the Feature, long time friend Doug Jones and Corey racing
through turn three, wheel to wheel and making the winning pass.
He's most proud of just getting to drive, going week in and week out,
driving because Corey loves to.

Of racing, Corey says, "It is like a
marriage. If you don't commit, you won't be any good at it!".
