Racing since the age of 7, 2015 is his 15th year of racing. Colton started out racing microds on 1/8 and 1/10 mile asphalt tracks. He continued up through the microd classes and in 2005 he moved to an open wheel, quarter midget class and won the New York State points championship.  In 2008, Colton made a move to dirt racing in a 600 micro sprint, in 2013 made his rookie start in a sportsman modified and in 2015 made his rookie start in the dirt modified class.

  • 2015 – Modified – To date Colton has several top 10 & top 5 finishes and several heat wins

Since 2014 Thee Amish Structures has been a proud sponsor and supporter of Colton and North Road Racing. It wasn’t until then that we realized the dedication, time and energy   that it takes to succeed in the racing world. By day Colton works for the Town of Dryden, then spends another 3-4 hours a night, 3-5 nights a week getting the car ready for the next weekends race, and if there is a special race during the week, the time spent on getting the car race ready means longer nights.  Colton and North Road Racing, have a great support team, so even when there is only a few nights between races, it’s a guarantee that the car will be race ready.

Since this is Colton’s rookie year in the modified class, he is still learning but has shown that with his years of racing experience he can keep up with the “big boys” and will only get better in the years to come.

Colton races Saturday nights at Thunder Mountain Raceway in Center Lisle, if you haven’t been to a dirt race, you owe it to yourself to go and experience the excitement of the roar and dirt of 20+ cars battling for 1st place.

Thee Amish Structures congratulates Colton Wilson on all his achievements to date, and we look forward to many more years of racing wins!
