I am James Costlow #97. I've loved racing since I was little. My mom says my first word was "car". At 4 years old I could tell you any driver's name and number in NASCAR and began dreaming of driving a racecar. I started racing at 5 years old at Blue Mountain Speedway. In quarter midgets I raced many classes including red plate, novice, Jr. Honda, Jr. Animal, Sr. Honda, Sr. Animal, Lt 160, World Formula, and Wild Animal. After racing Quarter Midgets I raced slingshots for 3 years. Last year I raced a stage one modified, and this year I have made the jump to a sportsman modified. I have raced both asphalt and dirt but I love racing on dirt, although a professional career on either would be great! It makes quite a mess, but it's so fun.
