Scott Tucker, Kansas City local and sport car driving sensation, has an interesting story. Most of the seasoned drivers in his sport are in their 30s and he was just getting his start in his 40s. That hasn’t stopped him from taking the sport by storm and winning plenty of races, though. Scott Tucker is a typical guy from the Midwest, but his racing career is anything but typical. Here are some interesting things you should know:
-Scott Tucker started in 2006 by entering the Ferrari Challenge Series. He actually won a lot of races that season, which was almost unheard of for a rookie.
