Tim Lawson, a Senior at Walker, is working his way to his dreams. Two years ago Tim was interviewed about his small time racing hobby involving pony stock style cars. Since then Tim has moved up in the racing world. He changed car styles, won major races, and was featured in Birmingham News. Tim’s small time hobby is turning more and more into a career.
Five years ago Tim started dabbling in racing just for fun, now it is part of his life. Tim has been driving limited open wheel for half a season. He has won World of Wheels: Racing Division, and The King of Dixie, which Tim said, “Was a huge deal!” Tim’s racing career has already taken him to several different tracks throughout Alabama, and preparing for a race is not that easy. Besides having to have the car in tip-top shape Tim’s mindset must be focused on nothing but speed! Tim originally had dreams of going to Nascar, but now would be content with owning his own mechanic shop or Nascar college.
Even though the season is currently over, Tim, as well as his sponsors, are preparing and waiting with anticipation for next season to roll around. We would like to congratulate Tim for success and wish him a good next season!
