The ‘Sure Thing’ Travis Schreurs
Travis Schreurs from Baltic, SD has not only impressed me, but all the racing fans of the area. He won 7 track championships total all ready in his short time racing during his competition in the hobby stock ranks.
Now in 2013 he has stepped up to the area’s top class of street stocks. The class is made up of much more exotic, higher horsepower cars and a mix of experienced, super competitive drivers.
‘The hobby stocks went very well and after last year we decided we had accomplished everything in that class and it was time to move up’, explained Schreurs.
Travis says, ‘The street stocks are a lot faster.’ So far this year how is he doing in this higher caliber class? He’s won 4 races at I-90 Speedway and 1 at Huset’s Speedway.
‘It’s the most fun I’ve had in a race car’, Travis told me. He purchased the #1 car he drives from retiring veteran racer Don Bickett.
Travis works professionally as an automotive mechanic. He works on his own race cars as well. Travis said, ‘Other than the graphics on the car, I didn’t change anything from when Don had it.’
