The Back Story:

A very young Paul Gilardi ponders the evening activities as he readies for the upcoming sportsman heat races.Paul got involved after his then girlfriend and future wife Tonya brought Paul to the races as a teenager, and He was hooked.He jumped into the newly formed sportsman class with both feet, purchasing this former Maynard Forrette Troyer chassis and having Northeastern Racing Supply build him the motor.

Paul managed to stay away from the high banks throughout almost the entire 90ís, until He purchased another sportsman car late in 1999 and returned to the seat for the decades final few races.Paul gradually moved up to the big blocks, recording his first ever career win in 2005.
