Checkers Story

There is nothing I like more than meeting our fans at Wake County Speedway for a fun Friday evening of racing under the lights. Track Promoter, Charlie Hansen brought me to the race track when I was just a young bull calf in 2012 and I've been entertaining kids of all ages ever since.

On race night, I love to make a big entrance on the track by taking a few laps in my custom-built go-kart! I really like fireworks too, especially on my birthday! I also enjoy shooting t-shirts into the grandstands from my super-duper t-shirt blaster and taking pictures with you, our awesome race fans.

Look for me all season along the front stretch grandstands and please be sure to say, "hi Checkers!"
