Lori Winchell has been a part of my racing team
since 1989. We were married in 1995 and headed to

Lori has the same desire as I do when it comes to
Art Herrmann and I joined forces in 1996 in the
Hooters Sportsmans Class. Art owns and operates
Associates Roofing in Hollywood Florida which is my
primary sponsor. Art goes to the races to have fun
much like everything he does in life! Art is much
more than a car owner, he is one of my best friends.

the boys, with her welding talents, fabrications
skills and her overall mechanical ability.

the car for practice, qualifying and the race.

racing, they travel and support me regardless of

the muscle of the crew. Eddie Cepeda has been

specialty. Christie Cepeda has been
traveling with Lori and I to tracks around the state
of Florida, she is one of my biggest supporters.

when I drove his grandfathers car and continues to
help to this day. McCoy Race Team (Jim, Jimmy,
Nestor, Corey, Phil, Ronnie, Dave and Johnny) travel to all
events. John and Alicia Gargiulo, Tom
Dailey thank you for your continued support,
friendship and the fun racing.
