Wesley started racing in 1995 in the Jr.
Honda Class at Kokomo Speedway because his Dad wanted him to race
motorcycles. Grandpa settled with 4 wheels in Quarter Midgets.
His first win was that same year. Career highlights include many
Track Championships at Kokomo Speedway, 2 Track Championships in 2
Classes in the same year, breaking Track Records at tracks that he'd
never been to previously.
The thrill of racing for Wesley is the
competition. His most exciting racing moment was at Gasoline Alley
Nationals G Main to 3rd in the A Main. He's most proud of this
accomplishment as he had to win B-C-E-G Mains to transfer to A Main.
Wesley's racing heroes are Jeff Gordon
and Rusty Wallace.
