Mickey Thompson; the racing legend and innovator

The legend of Mickey Thompson!

Mickey Thompson is a giant amongst racetrack heroes. He is the driver who holds more auto speed records than anyone on earth. He is the maverick car builder whose designs revolutionized racing. He is the tire innovator whose tires were used on fast attack vehicles in the Gulf War. He is the man who never gave up.

How did Mickey remain so determined to succeed against the odds? An IQ test revealed Mickey was near genius. His brilliant mind, steely determination and love of auto racing meant Mickey didn’t stop until he saw his revolutionary ideas come to fruition.

After Mickey had broken hundreds of auto speed records, he went on to help elevate off-road racing to its present status through sponsorship, celebrity involvement and stadium events.Mickey inspired the racing world and his contribution is still felt today.

When Mickey was discussing the publishing of his life story with his friend Tom Madigan, he told Tom, “If just one kid reads my story and realizes that he can better himself by just determination and guts, then I’ll be happy.”
