JT Stapp
"The Tree City Tornado"

  • Our guest today is the Tree City Tornado, race car driver JT Stapp.

    Born and raised in Greensburg Indiana. Started racing Go-Karts at age 15 in 1993. Got the nickname as "The Tree City Tornado" on a local radio show in 2004. J.T. is single and a college graduate, with his Associates Degree in Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. He plans to further his education in the coming years.

    I am involved in several charity functions including the annual 3-hour enduro benefit Go-Kart race at Fastimes in Indianapolis,IN. I have been involved raising money for great causes like the Kenny Irwin Jr. Foundation, USAC Benevolent Fund, and American Racing Ministries.

    I am also very involved in "A Race For A Cure" that started in 2005 to help fund research to find a cure for Diabetes. This problem affects nearly 21 Million children and adults in the United States. I have participated in walks, bike rides, and in 2007 we even had a golf outing to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. If you have any ideas for a local function you would like to promote to benefit ADA or the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation please email me. 2009 will be the inaugural year for the Diabetes Challenge This Rides 4 U Campaign to raise money for the American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation to fund research to find a cure. Fans will get the opportunity to ride in an 800 horsepower fire breathing Sprint Car, in one of the 2 seat cars that legendary car owner and builder Steve Stapp has built and assembled. Fans will give a donation for the number of laps they want to ride. The fan will ride in front and the driver will be in the rear of the car! I am ready to take some lucky fans for rides to give them a thrill and raise money for a cause that is very dear to my heart.
