Tommy Archer, Driver
Tommy Archer is one of the top professional American road racers in America. His experience and winning record in nearly every type of racing vehicle proves it—including multiple ice racing championships to podium finishes at the 24-hours of LeMans. When he was just 16 years old, he starred in his first race and 44 years (and 38 championships) later, he’s still a force to be reckoned with behind the wheel. When Tommy isn’t on the track, he lends his expertise to racing and development programs and also coaching racers on car set-ups and competent driving.
