DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Matt Piercy knew at a young age he wanted to follow his dad's footsteps and drive a race car at Hickory Motor Speedway.
The 21 year-old Mechanical Engineering major at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte can now add 2015 Hickory Motor Speedway Track Champion to his resume.
