TJ Smith Champion on the Rise
I wasn't born into a legacy of racing, but through the support of my family and the encouragement of my family and fans, I hope to leave one.
My father and family have lit a fire inside me that burns unlike anything I know. It's what makes me a champion. It's the "if I can't out-spend them, I will out-work them" attitude I've grown up with. I'm 23 and self-employed flooring installer, Myself and a few loyal sponsors fund my entire race program.
I may be young, but I've grown up knowing the success I want in my life. I also know that success lies on my shoulders, and I refuse to admit defeat. My countless hours of blood, sweat and grease have won me more than a handful of championships and nearly 50 feature wins. But I strive for more, if I was blessed enough to receive a sponsorship through champion I would use the money towards chasing my dreams, put money down on a new chassis and to becoming the champion I know I can be.
