It was a break-out season for high school senior Colin Garrett. He captured the Limited Sportsman championship at South Boston behind five wins. He also branched out to other tracks on nights South Boston wasn’t running and picked up his first Late Model Stock win.
“I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this year,” said Garrett, a senior at Halifax High School. “Obviously my wonderful family and being able to have the opportunity to race. I can’t thank everyone who’s been a part of this team all year to get us to the point we did.
“My mom and dad put a lot of effort into my racing as well as my partners and I can’t be thankful enough to them all.”
