TnT Motorsports

September 12, 2017

In the winter of 2012, Josh Teunissen and his uncle Bill Taylor, a retired sprint car driver, formed TnT Motorsports. Their goal was to build a 360 sprint car for Josh to race. After a year and a half of getting parts and building a car, the team was ready to hit the track. In the summer of 2014 Josh began racing the #96 car under the mentorship of Bill. Josh admits he knew nothing about racing when he climbed behind the wheel. He’s not sure he completed a circuit before being lapped his first night.

The team is now in their fourth season of competition in the Midwest Sprint Car Association (MSA) series and races weekly at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Josh has earned two heat race wins and Bill has come out of retirement to pilot the team’s second car (#69). Josh never imagined the team being where it is today. He started with his own money and used up parts. Today, they have new parts and a solid foundation. Josh is eternally grateful for his sponsors, family and friends. Without them, the team would not have gotten where it is.

He is inspired by stories of average people finding great success despite not having others believe in them.
