Kevin Thomas Jr.
Hometown: Cullman, IN
Birthdate: June 14, 1991
Bio: Kevin Thomas, Jr. started his career in racing with BMX bicycles. In 1999, at the age of eight years old, he amassed numerous wins on his way to becoming the Alabama State Champion and finishing tenth place in national points. For the next several years until 2005, Kevin would concentrate his athletic talents towards his traveling baseball team. This avenue also found his pinnacle of success winning the twelve and under World Series in the USSSA baseball series. However, this could not fill his desire to compete on the race track. His father, Kevin Thomas, Sr. was an accomplished 600 Mini sprint driver in the southeast with many wins to his credit, always had the youngster involved with the cars. Finally in 2005 he was given a chance to drive one of these cars capable of speeds up to 100 miles an hour and only thousandths of seconds off the lap times turned by their full sized sprint car brothers. The first time he ever sat in the car, he was on the track with eighteen others on a fast three-eighths mile track. He proved on this night that he had something special, staying out of trouble and passing his way through to a respectable ninth place finish. The impressive part of his inaugural season is the large size of tracks he ran. From the start he ran 1/3, 3/8, and 1/2 mile tracks. This talented youngster met each track with patience and aggressiveness. For the rest of the 2005 race season, he showed his racing peers, most of them whom are grown men, he was a serious contender. The end result was the O’Reilly UMSA Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Driver, and seventh place in the end of year point standings.
