HOMETOWN HEROES: A Look Into the World of Local Racers and Track Employees

In the sport of auto racing, there are those individuals whose names are synonymous with the word success. From early legends such as Mario Andretti and Richard Petty to head-turners like Jeff Gordon and Donny Shatz, and rising stars like Lewis Hamilton and Chase Elliott. Although these individuals’ stardom is not forgotten, their rise to stardom often is. Behind every great driver, there is a story of a dream and the long hard journey of making that dream a reality. A dream many are still chasing.

 Across the world, there are hundreds if not thousands of individuals writing a story of their own with the same desires and hopes as the greats who came before them. Some of them have been going after it for years and some are just getting their hands dirty. Despite how far along they may be, one thing is the same among them all, and that is that they all have a story worth telling.

Every week I will be interviewing one of these individuals, and helping them tell you their stories. They come from all different walks of life, and even different countries. They are all eager to share their experiences with you and eager to help you learn their names. I look forward to introducing you to your hometown heroes. 

A new Hometown Heroes article will come out every week. If you know someone or if you yourself would be interested in being interviewed for the Hometown Heroes series, you can contact Gianna on her Twitter or Instagram by clicking the links below.
