I received a friend request today, from a very impressive race car driver who comes from my hometown of Spokane, WA. Let me introduce you to Joey Bird, age 16. Joey has been racing for 8 years, starting with go karts. He started driving Super Late Models and Limited Late Models in 2011. He races across the country and has a very long list of wins & rookie of the year awards. Joey is the perfect example of a truly dedicated young driver with racing in his blood. I have a feeling that Joey might give the NASCAR drivers a run for their money in the future. Check out his wesite at www.joeybirdracing.com. Photos by Kodiakweb Racing.
A LITTLE ABOUT JOEY
At the age of 8, Joey got his first go-kart for his birthday. He began racing shortly after that, winning his first race right out of the shoot. Needless to say, he was hooked! In 2004, his first year of racing, he won ROOKIE OF THE YEAR. Joey continued to dominate at the Sunset Speedway Kart Association driving Jr 1 Animals and captured 2 consecutive Championships in 2005 and 2006. Moving into the faster more competitive Jr 2 Animal kart when he turned 11 in 2007, Joey again won the ROOKIE OF THE YEAR and dominated on the local racing circuit winning 3 consecutive Championships in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
In 2010-2011, Bird started circle track racing in the MMRA Baby Grand Series Division. Competing at Montana Raceway Park in Kalispell, MT, Las Vegas Motor Speedways’ Bullring Track and Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, ID. Joey captured an impressive 6 wins and finished in the top 3 in more than 92% of races entered. He took home 2 National titles at the end of his first year. He won the MMRA ROOKIE OF THE YEAR and the MMRA JR PRO WEST DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP. Joey also raced locally at the Stateline Speedway. He won over half of the Baby Grand Races he entered with 5 wins, 7 top 5’s, 3 poles and 2 track records. He took home a 2nd place track honor his rookie year.
In 2011, Joey will be moving to bigger, faster ultra competitive Super Late Models and Limited Late Models.
