Kevin Sherman comes from a line of race car drivers who lived close to the Wiscasset Speedway. Sherman lived just seven miles from the track, and he was introduced to the sport at a young age. Both of Sherman’s grandfathers’ (Ken Sherman and Merle Grover) and father (Norm Sherman) were drivers at Wiscasset. Sherman’s cousin, Adam Chadbourne also races at Wiscasset. It is a family tradition.
Kevin Sherman recalled that both of his grandfathers and his father “were very good back in the day. For me, it was a matter of just waiting until I could drive.”
Kevin has raced in many divisions at Wiscasset Speedway. His debut season at Wiscasset was in 2004 in the Lightweight B Demons. That year he had fifteen top five finishes and nine feature wins. Sherman earned the The Light B Championship and had Rookie of the Year honors.
