JOEY PARKER LOOKING TO CONTINUE LATE MODEL SUCCESS AT THOMPSON 125
Written by: Kyle Souza THOMPSON, Conn. – Joey Parker was born to race.
In 2004, he started his career in Quarter Midgets, and then transferred to Legends Cars. After a quick stop in the SK Modifieds, he seems to have now found his home in Late Models.
Four different cars — four different points in his career — and four different driving styles in order to get the job done on the track.
“I loved the SK Modified, my dad grew up racing modifieds, so it was almost a calling for me,” Parker said of his racing career path. “That was kind of one of my goals in life, and in 2013, a good friend of my dad put me in the car for the season and we had a top five, which was really good for a rookie season.”
Officials from Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park announced the postponement of the Thompson125 to Thursday, June 14th due to a unfavorable forecast. The entire schedule will remain unchanged. The Nascar Whelen Modified Tour, Nema Lites, and the four Nascar Whelen All-American Series will be in competition. For more details please visit ThompsonSpeedway.com
