Welcome to the BTE Racing Car of the Week series, where we feature our customers and fans, and the cars (and trucks) they love to race. Today, it’s all about Chris Mohler of Murray, KY, who was recently diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Though he’s undergoing chemotherapy, he’s “lucky enough to still feel like racing,” and often ends up in the winner’s circle with his 1984 Chevy C-10.
When and where was your first race?
My first race was when I was 16 on a back road with some high school friends. First track race was in Gleason, TN in the 90s.

Why do you use BTE?
Because some very good racers at my home track recommended them, and the customer service is amazing.
Someone you look up to in racing?
I look up to all of my racing family, because no matter what I'm going through they are always there for me.
If money were no object, what would you drive?
I would probably keep it the way I have it, because it's all I really need
What is your pre-race ritual (if you have one)?
I don't have a pre race ritual, but my motto is to take the family and have a good time win or lose.
