Shawn Cleary Sharkey of Middletown, New Jersey, is climbing the motorsports ladder, dedicated to reaching the top rung. Since his first kart racing event in 2007, Sharkey has impressed all by scoring race wins across the nation. With most karting competitors starting before their tenth birthday, Sharkey was a late bloomer as he first got behind the wheel early in his teenage years. With heart, dedication, devotion and natural skills, Sharkey quickly became a front runner in every class of competition.

For 2011 Shawn’s career will take the next step up. He will be driving a Late Model stock car for Lee Faulk Racing at Hickory Speedway in North Carolina. Shawn will compete in 25 races during the 2011 season for Lee’s team. This is the first step in Shawn’s goal of racing in Nascar.
