Do you like to drive fast? Mike Tillett, Sr. sure does. At least he does when he’s racing his car at Wall Stadium. Like so many others, Mike feels the need for speed and to satisfy that need, he has been a race car driver since 2004. These days Mike is driving a 1976 Chevelle chassis with an aftermarket body of a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix. Amazingly, he began racing when he was 42 years old. Before that, he had never even been in a race car. Now it’s a different story, and on Saturdays at Wall Stadium, Mike can be found driving in the street stock category of cars. Wondering what “street stock” means? Yeah me too, but Mike will explain about the different types of cars that are raced, their speeds and features, and what it takes to be a good race car driver. And most important, Mike will share how it feels to win a race. I’ve always had a curiosity about car racing but admit to not being a huge fan of the sport. My particular curiosity (and maybe yours as well) is what makes guys like Bayville resident Mike Tillett take such a high speed risk and what is the emotional experience (think major adrenaline rush) of being in a car while it’s speeding around the track. I have lots of questions, and Mike is definitely going to be an informative guest. After the interview, please check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
