Taylor Fritz

Richmond , KY

My name is Taylor Fritz; I am 15 years old, and I drive the number 66, UMP 4 Cylinder Warrior car. When I was 3 years old my grandfather and grandmother took me to the local dirt track where I watched my first race, from then on I was hooked. I would always watch the NASCAR or World of Outlaws races on tv. To get closer to the sport I even interned with Mike Harmon Racing at Kentucky Speedway in July of 2017. In late 2015 I finally saved up enough money to buy my own car and fix it up my self. I had a ton of help from my grandfather and grandmother, who lived in Paducah, KY, to get it ready for the 2016 season. My first season was hard, only mustering 6 top 10 finishes at Paducah International Raceway, but it would soon get better. In 2017, after working hard over the off season we would come home winners at Clarksville Speedway in Tennessee. This off season has taken a somber tone after loosing my grandmother to cancer. I need help more than ever because I do not have the support I once did.
