Tom will drive his self owned and operated Dirt Modified Racecar for the 2014 season. Powered by a Doug Meyers 358 Chevy Small Block, Tom hopes to power his way into victory lane.
Racing has come naturally to the Scheetz family beginning 3 generations ago. Tom began his racing career driving Quarter Midget Racecars. Quarter Midget Racecars are a 1/4 scale racecar of a Midget racecar and have rear mounted 4hp motors with speeds capable of 75mph depending on class and gearing. The next step for Tom was a DA Asphalt Modified at Mahoning Valley Speedway. His first season at Mahoning Valley was a bit rocky. Tom's 2nd season was a big hit as he set a new track record and won a feature event. As time went on, the decision came to race a 358 Dirt Modified at Grandview Speedway and other local tracks. In the 2007 season at Grandview Speedway, Tom won his first Dirt Modified feature event.
