Thomas ‘Lil’ Red’ Schwarz is an 8 year old from Little Rocky Hill, New Jersey. Quarter midgets have been his life since before he was born. His older brothers, Trevor and Travis, started racing the year Thomas was born; He started coming to the track when I was just nine days old.
This season will be his fourth year of racing with QMA at Garden State Quarter Midget Racing Club and Little Wall Stadium. He has nine wins in quarter midget racing; and has taken some really big tumbles already in his career. He has raced in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia and will race in Florida this summer. When he comes off the track, his dad and brothers are the first ones there to talk about how the car handled and if it was comfortable.
Thomas has learned to make friends and how to work with his family. But most, he learn about being a good sport because that’s not easy when someone wrecks you when you are leading. When he's waiting to go on the track, Thomas is thinking about racing clean and what strategies he might use to win. Sometimes he's even hoping he doesn’t flip! His goals for this season and Grands are really the same – to win!! "I want to be a champion!"
