    I’m a local boy from Claremont, North Carolina. I attended Western Carolina University where I received a B.S. in Communication with a double concentration of broadcasting and journalism. While in college I was the General Manager of WWCU-FM and color commentated WCU football basketball games.

Tyler Clary shocked the world in 2012 at the London Olympic Games when he set the Olympic record for the 200-meter backstroke and won gold. That was an amazing accomplishment but Clary wanted to get involved with the sport he fell in love with as a boy.

"I never got a chance to really give myself a good shot at it until after London," said Clary

The sport? Racing.

"I've always loved being in and around cars," said Clary. "This is a dream come true."

Clary entered his first oval-track race at Charlotte Motor Speedway racing a Legends car. Unofficially, Clary finished 15th.
