He says he fell in love with racing after watching his dad compete at Road America. His father raced Indycars and has raced in the Indy 500. Sam races for Franklin Motorsports. He is the youngest racer ever to win a NASCAR sanctioned race. Sam has won so much that his Mom says he can just display the first place trophies, but his room was getting really full.
