Driver Information

I have grown up around the dirt track watching my dad Tom Svoboda. I have been going to the races since before I could walk. I had always dreamed of racing as a kid and now my parents, sponsors, friends, and family members have made that a reality for me. With watching my dad all of my life I also worked on his cars. He raced and still races a Late Model and Modified, so I have plenty of experience. I currently race in the Modified division. My dream is to race a Late Model in the Lucas Oil Late Model series and the World of Outlaws. I am far from that point in my career, but you have to start somewhere! I pride myself on being a clean driver, I want to win races because I am the fastest car, not because I can drive through others. Racing is a passion of mine and there is nothing else I would rather do. If I could race for a living all year round I would. Working on race cars for me is enjoyable which allows for me to race a lot because I enjoy it and don't think of it as work. The time that I put into my car and my equipment is never ending, especially when racing 3 nights a week. I have learned to never be satisfied, the car can always be faster and I try to strive for constant improvement. My goal as a racer is to win, but also have fun doing what I love with my friends and family!

Career Highlights

I won my first race at US 30 Speedway in 2015 at the Abe Lincoln Memorial where I started 18th and won on a last lap pass. I am a pretty consistent finisher so I have finished in the top 5 in points numerous times. I won the points championship at Junction Motor Speedway in 2016. In 2017 I won the points championship at US 30 Speedway and Junction Motor Speedway. We won 8 races, 14 second place finishes, and 44 top 5 finishes. Of the 8 wins they included the Abe Lincoln Memorial, and the Marcie Schultz Memorial that paid $2000 which is the most I have ever won. In 2018 I wont the track points at Junction Motor Speedway, Boone County Raceway, and the NE state points. I also finished 6th in IMCA points and won races at 5 different tracks.

Most Memorable Moment

The most memorable moment I have had is finishing 1st and 2nd with my brother in 2017 5 different times! The only problem was I was the 2nd place car all 5 times...
