MT: Who do you accredit your sucess to?

 

Spiker:  Without my son Case, my parents Mike, who is a former monster truck driver, and Sandy Spiker, my neice Alexis and fellow mega truck racers Opie and Ross Francisco I wouldn’t be where I am. I love you guys!”

MT: I know you’ve rolled and totalled a few of your “Hammerhead” trucks, how many were there?

Spiker: I’ve had 5 but my first one, an Orange and White chevy, was by far my favorite to race.

MT: What inspires you?

 

Spiker: The kids, to get to see their face smile and their excitement. The fans of course. I take the extra min to go out of my way to go see all my fans. Let them know they are all important to me and the sport.

 

MT: What are your goals for the future?

Spiker: I want more tire shops, I want my son to grow up to be a doctor, which he will, I want to be the best dad in the world. As far as racing, i’d love to see it all over the country. I’d like to travel all over the country and race. That would be fun.
