Tom Dyer is a second-generation race car driver with a natural talent that began while growing up around racetracks throughout North America. Racing is in his bloodlines that has been passed down from his father, Buzz, who raced professionally from the 60’s through the early 90’s.
Tom’s own professional career started with go-karts where he accumulated many wins, set numerous track records, and won multiple class championships. After making the move to cars, he carried on that winning tradition when he added both open-wheel and stock car race wins and championships to his resume.
Tom has dedicated himself to becoming a professional in motorsports that has proven to be his passion and driving force in his life. When not at the track, Tom can often be seen giving back to the sport through coaching and helping others enjoy what he loves so much. His activities outside racing include; bicycling, basketball, and motorcycles. He centers his life by being both spiritually and physically active in anything that supports his well being and of those around him.
