SKID ROW's RACHEL BOLAN Makes Music On The Racing Track

August 1, 2004

SKID ROW bassist Rachel Bolan recently spoke to the Lowe's Motor Speedway web site about his stint as a Legends Car racing rookie in the Hardee's Summer Shootout at Lowe's Motor Speedway this summer.

"Racing got into my blood at an early age," he explained. "I used to go with my big brother to watch stock cars in New Jersey and drag racing at Englishtown."

Bolan has competed in a few celebrity races, but has become a regular Legends Car competitor at such tracks as Concord Motorsports Park, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Lanier Raceway and Hickory Motor Speedway.

"I like racing at Lanier because it is a faster, banked track, but now that I've started racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway the two tracks are neck and neck," Bolan said.

Bolan now lives in Atlanta and makes the 260-mile weekly commute to participate in the Hardee's Summer Shootout at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

"When I get about half-way the adrenaline starts to kick in, so I don't really notice the drive," Bolan said. "The competition, racing in general and seeing my friends is my motivation for making the trip each week. When I'm on the track, I have nothing else to focus on but driving." Read more.
