Travis Kvapil knew he wanted to be a racecar driver since he was a kid making black marks in the driveway with his bike tires.
He spent hours hanging around his dad's shop and at the local tracks, watching and learning about race cars. When he was 14 years old, he was hot-lapping stock cars under the keen eye of his dad, Dick, and Jim Pierson, who later became Travis' first mentor and crew chief.
The early days of racing were not easy despite the fact that Kvapil's trophy cases were filling up. He went to school, went to work, then worked on the race car. There was little time for anything else.
Before making it big in NASCAR, Kvapil starred in the RE/MAX Challenge Series during the 1999 and 2000 seasons, winning twice at Pikes Peak International Raceway.
He counted 15 top-five and 21 top-10 finishes in the Late Model cars during the 1999 and 2000 seasons. He was the 1996 Late Model champion of Madison (Wis.) International Speedway.
Kvapil had a sensational 2001 season in the Craftsman Truck Series, winning Rookie of the Year honors, winning his first race and finishing fourth in the CTS championship standings.
