Knoxville, Tennessee native Philip Thompson earned the 2017 Fastrak Touring Series Rookie of the Year as a member of #TeamChampion. In 2016, Thompson captured four feature wins and several top five finishes, which proves that he can be competitive among some of the best late crate model drivers in the nation. Before following his dream of racing Dirt Late Model he raced in the classic race car division, first getting behind the wheel in 2006. Over the 10 year period racing in that division Thompson had an impressive 46 feature wins and took the track championship at Tazewell Speedway. Philip and team are looking to improve during the 2018 season and compete in major South East regional events.
