Dunn, Mike



            Mike is my kind of people, let me start by saying that!  A diehard Boston sports fan and one of those guys that's not afraid to say what he thinks.  That translates to the track as he wheels the #9 Modified for all it's worth.  He is also one of the guys that lives for events like Kid Rides and the chance to put some hot laps on an antique tractor.  Watch for him to collect a few trophies this season!
