Walker Motorsports is a family owned team & was established in January 2013 by Christopher Walker of Archdale, NC. Chris has also been around racing for a very long time. He started out racing go-karts for 10 years but then a medical condition stopped his racing career at the age of 18. But that wasn’t going to stop him from being a part of the sport. And after he graduated High School, he joined Michael Ritch Racing, starting out as a parts cleaner then later moved up to a front tire changer. From there he worked with numerous Nascar teams as a front tire changer but after a few pit road accidents he decided it was time to call it quits. From there he got the fire to start his own Motorsports team and that’s where we are today!!
