Spend ten minutes with 18-year-old Hickory Late Model racer Matt Piercy and you’ll be impressed.

Matt_Piercy_Stearns_PhotoHe is well-spoken, humble and determined.  Driving the Z-Loop sponsored No. 25, Matt has had a toss salad kind of season, with several poles and top three finishes mixed in with some runs like last Saturday night where the result wasn’t what the team expects.  The competition level at Hickory is as strong as it’s been in years and Matt Piercy is a driver on the verge of winning his first ever NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Late Model feature at the legendary North Carolina facility.

He grew up at Hickory.  His father Kevin raced there before taking over the track’s tire business and then becoming promoter.  Matt’s now a Freshman at UNC-Charlotte in the Mechanical Engineering/Motorsports Concentration program on the Alan Kulwicki Memorial Scholarship.

  1. I am glad that you covered Hickory Motor Speedway Late Model driver Matt Piercy, I have watch him race a couple of years ago, that was a good interview, seems like he got a good head on his shoulders. Now I hope you can interview some of the Limted drivers.
