WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY) — T.J. Barron was born to sit behind the wheel of a car. He started racing as a youngster and hasn’t stopped since. “It’s an expensive hobby.” Barron said. “I’ve been doing it since I was ten years old. I started racing at the Fireball Raceway in Leland.”

Last year in just his third season racing a limited late model car Barron captured the track championship at the Coastal Plains Raceway in Onslow County. “I had ten poles out of 16 starts and 9 wins. Barron said. “I broke the track record for consecutive wins in a season and I won the season championship as well.”
