At the age of 8, Scott Dodd's parents bought him a Quarter Midget as a birthday gift and the now 22 year old from Mira Loma, California has been tearing up the track ever since. "My dad had raced at the Pomona Valley Quarter Midget track when he was a kid. I won the very first Quarter Midget race that I participated in at that same track," says Dodd. Scott then went on to win 13 championships, 7 track championships, 3 regional championships, 2 California Monza Championships, and 1 national championship.

Scott ended up breaking over 10 track records in the 5 years he ran Quarter Midgets. "I also won over 300 races. In IKF Karts, I won 5 of the 7 races that I competed in," says Dodd. He is the youngest driver to win a Super Late Model race at Toyota Speedway of Irwindale and the youngest driver to lead the point standings in the Super Late Model class. Dodd has won in every series that he participated in, including Quarter Midgets, Karts, Micro Midgets, Speed Trucks, Dirt Super Stocks, Modifieds and Super Late Models. Dodd says one of his proudest moments came in 2001 when he became the USAC/QMA National Champion. "I got to go to the USAC awards banquet in Indianapolis and received a special Road to Indy award from Tony George, owner of the Indianapolis speedway."

Dodd relates that he was pleased with his 2009 season but is looking forward to running the 2010 NASCAR Whelen Super Late Model class at Toyota Speedway of Irwindale. "Last year I won two races and had 4 top ten finishes. Due to engine problems we were not able to run most of the races in 2009 season," says Dodd. Even so, he is one of the top picks to win the 2010 Super Late Model championship at Irwindale. "Our team has worked very hard and I've been lucky enough to win more races than most other drivers, even those that have more Super Late Model experience than me," says Dodd.

He believes having great sponsors is also part of the team's success. "K&N makes excellent products that save the consumer money and improve racing performance. We have received so much support from K&N for many years and it is greatly appreciated," says Dodd. "Racing is one of the most important things in my life. I work hard at it and have learned from some of the best racers around. I hope to be able to continue to move into higher levels of competition."
