A 15-year-old Hinckley resident is a NASCAR champ in the making.
Matt Tifft can’t legally pilot the family car around the block; yet he’s already preparing for the day when he’ll end up in the winner’s circle against the likes of Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon.
“When I was around 5 years old, my dad owned a race car in Michigan,” he said. “I would go up there a couple of times a year to visit family and go to the track to watch the races and help out with the cars. I got hooked on it. I watched NASCAR a lot.”
