TOM HESSERT
Tom Hessert literally grew up at the racetrack, learning the craft from his father Tom II, an exceptionally talented road racer with three victories in the 24 hours of Daytona, three at Sebring, wins at Watkins Glen and more. And, like his father before him, Tom III took up the family business of professional motorsports. Over eight full seasons on the ARCA tour, the likeable east coast racer has never finished out of the top-10 points with career-best third place finishes in 2010 and 2014, both times driving for Cunningham Motorsports. In 159 career starts, he’s got five wins at Talladega, Iowa and three of the last six races at Salem. Overall, he’s led 987 laps in 30 races.
