Mike Peck, Owner, No. 40 Arthritis Foundation/Kids Get Arthritis Too Chevrolet
Racing and family have always gone hand-in-hand for Mike Peck, team owner of Peck Motorsports.
Peck got his first taste of racing as a driver at age 15, piloting dirt cars around Hagerstown (MD) Speedway. He continued driving as a hobby while he pursued a career in medicine. After graduating from medical school, he found the perfect way to stay involved with the sport. Peck’s brother, Tom Peck, began racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 1984. Mike became part owner of the team and helped manage the team throughout his brother’s career, which spanned through 1995.
The team became inactive after Tom retired from the sport. Now Todd Peck emerging as an up-and-coming driver, Mike has renewed interest in the team. He has rekindled his role as team owner and fields the No. 96 Peck Motorsports Chevrolet for his son. The team has risen from the Hooters Pro Cup Series to the K&N Pro Series. They will compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2012.
