Racing

For three generations, the Montagues have been part of the racing world.

My husband Ted Montague IV, started out racing Karts (where he won a National Championship when he was 16).

Then he moved up to racing Modifieds

Me, our nephew Kyle, the trophy girl, Ted, and his father in the winner's circle at Stokton Motor Speedway.

After Modifieds, we switched to Late Models for a short time.

We spent a while bouncing around between asphalt and dirt tracks, finally deciding to chuck it all and switch to Legends cars.

I often help him out at the track by acting as his spotter. This means that I sit high up in the stands or above the stands, and I tell him where the cars are in relation to him. I’ve always been a speed freak (with 5 speeding tickets in my lifetime, oops), so I find it vastly entertaining to be a part of the racing community.

On the city streets, we around in this handsome devil.
