Driver Profile - curtis moore - #17 Thunder stock
Well here is the skinny, I have been around Auto Clearing Motor Speedway for about five years now and racing for four - after sitting in the stands one night, I said "got to get me one of them cars." I had raced a few Enduros but went full in 2008 when I built a 1978 Caprice in to a Thunder Stock car - #17. That's my number and don't rub it off! We raced the car for two years and realized the cost was getting high so we packed it in, got a few trophies and flags to say I did it!
One of the biggest things I did was being a partner in the start of the Race For A Cure at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. I tried to make it every year for at least that race with a car, but sometimes it just didn't work out. This year, I am coming back for a full season, as yes car #17 again, but a new ride! This year I am running a 1966 Impala two door hardtop that has a lot of history and if you really want to know, this car was a ... wait for it, wait for it, it was a Super Sport big block car in its day and I am kind of sure that the cage is from Tun Harms Super Stock #10. So history, ya its got it.
We are looking forward to coming out this season and having some fun again and Race For A Cure, you bet I will be trying to kick some asphalt this season. I don't have much on crew - well, I am crewless in Saskatoon right now and Brad has his own car to deal with. But for everyone that as helped out so far thanks a lot!
Go into the pits after the races and make sure you make your way to Curtis` pit stall to sign his pink race car!
