ARCA Racing Series champion Sheldon Creed might be new to the NASCAR world, but he has one heck of a racing background.

In this episode Creed reflects on his ARCA championship and whether he saw that coming; why the time was right to make the transition to the Truck Series with GMS Racing; what his goals are for his four races; what goes into winning a gold medal at the X Games; getting to race against Robby Gordon; the transition from off-road and Stadium Trucks to pavement; why he didn’t like stock cars at first; where his initial interest in racing came from and starting at 3 years old; a run­through of his racing career to this point; why he believes experiencing an off­-road race is more fun than a NASCAR race; his hope for Stadium Trucks to get more recognition and looked for driver talent; praising Hailie Deegan; the origin of his ‘Showstopper’ nickname; the first thing he does in the morning; what his during the week job is; his love of action sports; our mutual love of Mexican food; disagreeing over pizza toppings; and what his end goal is for his racing career.
