A relative newcomer to the radio-controlled racing scene, Terry has established a reputation as a top competitor. He began flying electric planes in 2008 but moved into cars a year later. In the past three years, he has honed his skills to be a threat in both off-road and on-road racing.
Terry enjoyed a banner year in 2012, highlighted by a win in Stock 2wd Buggy at the JConcepts Summer Indoor Nationals at Outback Raceway in Chico, CA. He also finished third in 4wd Short Course at the New Year’s Day Showcase at Traction Raceway in Reno, NV, second in 13.5 2wd Buggy at the Outback Shootout in Chico, second in 2wd Expert Short Course at the Traction Raceway Showdown in Reno, third in 2wd Open SCT at the Modesto RC Motown Showdown in Modesto, CA, second in 17.5 Buggy and 2wd Open SCT at the Northern California Electric Off-Road Championships at Nor-Cal Hobbies in Union City, CA, second in Invite 17.5 NR Buggy at the Off-Road Kings at Nor-Cal Hobbies, and first in 17.5 Buggy at the Short Course Explosion at Delta RC in Antioch, CA.
Terry enjoys all types of action and adventure sports, including motorcycling, BMX, skateboarding, and skydiving to name just a few. He also has competed in extreme fitness events, including the Warrior Dash (extreme obstacle course race) in Hollister, California, which pushes the body’s limits over rugged terrain and extreme barriers. He is an accomplished interior and exterior house painter by trade, who loves to hang out with his wife and daughter at their home in Rocklin, California.
