Tucker Wingo, a third generation race car driver, began his racing career in Tennessee at the historic Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway at the age of 15. In 2008, he started down the path of his dream by making his debut in a Legend car at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
One year later in 2009, Wingo captured his first series championship at the Nashville Fairgounds Speedway running the Legend Young Lions division. Tucker won 11 races out of 18 starts impressing many with his success in only his second season.
Tucker spent most of 2010 racing at Highland Rim Speedway, a fast paced, high banked 1/4 mile track. Wingo made 11 starts at the speedway and claimed 5 victories along with taking the honor of the fast time award 4 times.
In the 2011 season, Tucker raced at both Highland Rim Speedway and the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. He had 16 starts between the two race tracks, claiming multiple victories and 6 fast time awards.Tucker traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2011 Legends Big Money 100, known as the largest Legend car race in the world.
After making the jump to the Pro Late Model division in 2012 and having quick success resulting in a fourth place finish in the season points standings and capturing Rookie of the Year honors against some very strong competition. That success became a launching point for Tucker as he would continue to post strong consistent finishes to claim the 2013 points championship for the Pro Late Model division at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville ousting 2-time Daytona 500 champion Sterling Marlin by an 8 points. The crown came on the back of consistent strong runs for Tucker whose perseverance through adversity brought Tucker out on top.
For the 2014 season Tucker looks to defend his track title as well as taking the challenge and stepping up on a part time schedule to the Super Late Model division. With the potential step up Tucker is looking to make appearances at several of the Super Late Model “big” races including the annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, a race with a huge draw both with teams and fans.
