West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Tonight's speedway spotlight is the complete package. The VanMil name is well known throughout the local racing community, and Corry has been spinning tires on the track since the early 70s.

Currently, the Lake Park resident, who races the number 40 car,sits 12th in the point standings of the Mod-4 division at Buffalo River Race Park. Meanwhile, his son Rob is the points leader in both the midwest mods and mod-4s. That's not all. Corry is a self-proclaimed motorhead that's built over 26 race cars.

Corry VanMil – Race Driver and Mechanic: β€œIt is quite a rush to go out there and race, but its quite a different deal to build your own cars, build your own motors, and go out there and race against your own cars. Up in Ada there the last couple of weeks, at least 4 of the top 5 the last couple weeks in the feature are my cars. I'm sitting here chasing a bunch of my own cars that these guys do really well with. It's quite a rush to do this.”
