Tommy Fain emerged from his IMCA stock car victorious at the Ryan Bard Memorial Southern Challenge event at Abilene
Speedway in Texas. Fain only raced 15 times this season, but won four features. Before steering stock cars, Fain
campaigned modifieds. He earned modified championships at Texas ovals Abilene Speedway, Boyd Raceway, Monarch Motor
Speedway in Wichita Falls, and West Texas Raceway in Lubbock.
“The stock car takes considerably less time to maintain than the modified,” Fain, 54, of Abilene, Texas, said. “I cut back my
racing for more family time — I’ve got a four-year-old granddaughter and a thriving business.”
Fain owns Abilene Race Rads, which, among many other things cooling-system-related, manufactures the Super Sucker
brand of four-blade fans. While his business certainly means a lot to Fain, he places a message of greater importance to him
large on his car — “God is Awesome” — which is part of GodisAwesomeRacing.net, the website for his team.
“Yes, God is awesome,” said Fain. “When I started in racing, I felt like racing should be my ministry. I’m not a vocal, in-your-
face type of guy. What I have on the side of my car is one way to strike up a conversation with people about God. It is one
way I can be a witness to God.”
Fain gives credit to God in times of success, even if that means emerging unscathed from trouble.
“God protects me when I am racing,” Fain said. “I walked away from two bad flips in my career.”
The message Fain carries on his stock car resonates with those who see it at the races.
“People complement me for showing my faith at the racetrack,” said Fain.
Tommy Fain plans to start the 2021 season in Arizona. You can count on seeing the “God is Awesome” message on his car
“Racers ask me if they can use my slogan on their cars,” Fain said. “I tell them I don’t have the rights to God. Everyone has
the right to God.”
