Name: Garrett Thomas
Parents: Mary and Brian Thomas
School: Elma High School
Sport: Auto racing
School Activities: When not racing, Thomas spent his senior year as part of the Eagles Soccer Club, and participated in Skills USA and FFA. Thomas was a multi-sport athlete in previous years playing basketball and track, but chose soccer over the long jump and hurdles. Thomas has been racing at the Grays Harbor Raceway in the Ford Focus Midget class for the past four years, starting his racing career in Go-Karts with the Cascade Karting Association. Thomas is currently in fourth in the point standings for his class.
Looking to pursue a career as a welder, he believes he will stay in the area and continue racing.
“I would like to move into a Sprint car, but have to get my career going first. For now I will stay in the Midget class,” said Thomas.
Thomas will graduate with the rest of his Eagle senior class this up coming weekend.
