Wrecked Neck Racing would like to extend a big welcome to Justin Smith! We met him in Eagle Mountain last year where we first saw him drive mini vans and he took 1st place! Justin has been building and driving for 16 years, and has had multiple placement awards and mad dog awards. His first car he ever built was a 1964 Buick Skylark wagon in Heber 2008. His favorite car to run is station wagons, but he has built and drove and won in stock cars and vans. When he’s not derbying, Justin likes horse riding, hunting, working on cars, and restoring old cars. He’s a garbage truck driver by trade, and has a beautiful wife named Sidney who cheers him along every step of the way. His daughter, Emmersyn, is almost 1! Welcome to the Wrecked Neck fam!
Springville, Utah born and raised! Triston is going into his second year of driving, after a successful first year at Halloween Havoc. His first car was a 72 Impala with a 402 big block. His dream is to run imperials, because of the cool name and the body style of the car. He loves trucks, mechanics, being outdoors, and was raised in a garage wrenching since childhood. Anything with a motor is something he can bond over! Triston went to college to become a diesel mechanic and has been working on dirt bikes, ATVs, and trucks. He is slowly building his career and wanting to start his own shop. His biggest inspiration is his grandpa, who was also a derby driver. His grandpa drove derby's in the 60's and 70's at Sentenial Raceway and that's where he got his race number #00, for his grandpa "Shakey Jake." Triston is planning on driving at Parowan Demolition Derby this year. Welcome to the team!
