As a child, Mike attended the Reading Fairgroundís Race Track. It was here that he developed a true love for racing, racecars, and the drivers. As he grew older, his love for racing continued and spread to modifieds, sprint cars, and NASCAR. Now, Mike has begun to help preserve the memories of the Reading Fairgroundís Race Track by restoring some of the racecars that he once watched compete.
Through the years, Mike has completely restored Bobby Braxton's blue 35 car. Mr. Braxton provided Mike with the parts, pieces, and history of the car, making the restoration completely authentic. He has worked on many other cars including the Russ Smith's Reading Gremlin Modified, the Ed "Shag" Horan replica, the Red Lesher replica, and more. Mike has also received Fred Brightbillís 13 car, Dizzie Dean's 42 car, and Sammie Beaver's 43 car. He plans to restore all to their original appearance.
Mike has been involved in the establishment of the Reading Fairgrounds Racing Historical Society, founded on February 4, 2004. By doing all this, Mike is hoping to continue to preserve memories made at the Reading Fairgroundís Race Track. The links below hold information on the association and cars.
