RUSS BLAKELEY

Whitewater, WI, USA

Watch #22 Russ Blakeley started racing at age 12 and won in almost everything he touched; go-karts, dirt bikes, drag cars, dirt cars, mud bogs and snow cross. By the time Russ was 16 years old he was racing Enduro Cars, Limited Late Models, Late Models, and Street Stocks. Career Highlights • 2004 NASCAR Elite Touring Division, Rookie of the Year • 2000 Millennium Late Model Champion, Lake Geneva Raceway, Lake Geneva, WI • 1999 Rookie of the Year-Late Models, Lake Geneva Raceway, Lake Geneva, WI • 1993 Rookie of the Year-Pikes Peak Hill Climb-Stock Car Division, Pikes Peak, CO • Crew Member for Scott Wimmer, Hooters Pro Cup & ASA Racing Series • Nicknamed “Captain Spectacular” for jumping a schoolbus over a motorhome Racing has always been a family hobby. As a kid, Russ and his sister Peggy would spend weekends at Lake Geneva Raceway watching their father, Terry Blakeley, race. Then while living in Cripple Creek, Colorado, his dad started competing in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb; motivating Russ to do the same. It is Russ’ sincere desire to have his son Dalton (age 9) follow in his footsteps. Dalton’s go-kart is ready and waiting-it just needs Dalton’s feet to grow a little more to reach the pedals. Russ is thrilled to be racing a full schedule again this year, and with so many friends and former competitors. “This new ASA Midwest Tour Program is proving to be one of the most professional race circuits the Midwest has seen in a long time. The level of experience, commitment and concern for the drivers, race teams and fans is beyond compare. The fans will truly be in for an exciting season.” Russ would like to extend his heartfelt thanks to his family, friends and crew for all of their support. It is only through their help that he is able to compete at this level. Thank you to the Navy, B & B Racing Engines and Steve Carlson for all of their help, support and encouragement this racing season. Special thanks to our 2007 Crew: Jesse Wilcox-Crew Chief; Donny Heelein, Mike Heelein, Gary O’Donnell, Laura Thiel, Terry Blakeley.
