Getting to know Tom Coleman:
Favorite Racing Memory: Any day behind the wheel is a good day! My first and only win so far came in a heat race and it was the weekend after I had returned from my nieces funeral, had just put an "in memory" decal on my car and a transmission that started slipping in hot laps! I qualified poorly and was in the "B" class with the trans still acting up but now with 2 cans of "trans fix" in it. I started the heat race and made my way to the lead, coming off turn 4 heading for the checkers the trans all but completely let go, but gave me just enough power to the ground to get the win. I have no idea how it lasted all 8 laps but it did and I got my first trip to victory lane! It felt good to give the guys who help me every week a win also!!
