Mike Ward


Mike Ward drives the #80 Ford Focus Midget Class car.  He lives in Charlotte, NC.

Team members helping Mike are:  Scott Ryerson.  Robert Ward is the car owner.

Mike started racing in 1983 in the 250cc Micro Sprint Class at Rock Rest Speedway because he had been racing motor cross and kept getting hurt and beat up!  The class had motorcycle engines so the transition was easy.  His first win was in 1986 in the 250cc Class at Rock Rest Speedway.  Career highlights include the Fast Time 2000 NMMA Nationals at Marion, IL, 1999 Fast Time Eastern Raceway in Charleston, IL.

The thrill of racing for Mike is the mechanical part, making the car run better.  His most exciting racing moment is when the 410's line up and ready to start!  He's most proud of he and his Dad doing it together.

Mike's racing hero is Roger Penske.

Of racing, Mike says, "It is not as easy as it looks.  It takes a lot of athletic ability!".
