Scotty Thiel began racing snowmobiles at the age of six and when the snow and ice melted in 1999, he found the need for speed in racing karts at a local track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Scotty’s passion for racing was growing and he continued to race both snowmobile in the winter and karts in the summer for the next ten years. Today, Scotty has accomplished several championships and in 2008 chose to take a major step forward in his racing career. He began racing a 360 dirt Sprint Car and on September 4th, 2009 the dream of winning a Sprint Car feature became reality.

So how did Scotty get to where he is at? In 1998, Scotty began his racing career racing Kitty Cat snowmobiles on the Wisconsin Kitty Cat Racers (WKCR) circuit. Scotty won the Rookie of the Year award in his first season racing snowmobiles. From there, Scotty moved onto faster sleds and won many races. In 2004, Scotty moved up to the Jr. Novice class which is a full sized snowmobile and again won the Rookie of the Year award in the WKCR and Wisconsin Kids Snowmobile Racing Association (WKSRA) series. In the 2006 snowmobile season Scotty jumped at the chance to race in the United States Snowmobile Association (USSA) Pro Star Series. The USSA Pro Star Series is the highest level of ice-oval snowmobile racing and all of the events encompass the entire weekend. His first season in USSA, Scotty ran two classes, Jr. 1 stock and Jr. 1 Sprint. During the 2007 season Scotty had high intentions to win a championship. Being a man of his word he not only won one but won both championships and was voted 2007 USSA Jr. Driver of the Year. In 2008, Scotty continued to move up the ladder in Semi-Pro and Pro level classes and when the year was up he had won the Semi-Pro Sprint 600 Championship.

When the ice melts and most kid’s thoughts turn to riding their bikes, Scotty’s thoughts turn to racing karts. In 1999, Scotty began racing at Elkhart Lake, WI. He finished 8th in overall points. Over the next five years he raced in Shawano at the USA International Raceway racking up three track championships. In 2006, He moved up to the regional, Mid-West Sprint Series (MWSS). This series races across the Midwest that includes races in Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Scotty won several poles and features in the MWSS. In 2007, Scotty stepped up to oval kart racing where he continued to travel regionally. He won several feature races, took second in the WKA King of the Oval Championship Points, the WKA Heartland Pavement Track Championship, and finished third in the 2007 WI State Kart Championships.

The 2008 year marked a huge move in Scotty’s racing career. STM purchased a 360 Winged Dirt Sprint Car. In only his rookie season, Scotty captured five heat race wins, two B-Main wins, three top 5 A-Main finishes, nine top 10 A-Main finishes, and a 2008 PDTR Rookie of the Year award. No one expected to see those results out of a 16 year old rookie. The 2009 season started out rough for the STM team but a September 4th win proved everything is running strong. Rounding out the 2009 season with seven heat race wins, one B-Main win, four top 5 A-Main finishes, ten top 10 A-main finishes and one A-Main victory.
