Winston-Salem, NC- (January 24,2019)- Slade Parsons is more than ready for his sophomore season behind the wheel of his No. 96 Kyle Strickler Motorsports prepared Longhorn Chassis UMP Modified. In 2018 Parsons teamed with the popular modified star and the results were very promising for the 18-year old senior at R.J. Reynolds high school in Winston-Salem, NC.
I wasn’t that interested in sports, they just seemed to bore me. I was drawn to the adrenaline pumping action of racing. My Dad thinks it all started at Bowman Gray Stadium when I was three. As soon as the Modifieds rolled out I told him this is what I want to do. My Dad wasn’t sure I could race but my persistence paid off and we found kid-karts when I was four.
