CHARLOTTE, NC (February 22) – Hal Goodson is what you might call an “old school” racer.  He learned that in order to succeed in racing, you have to be able to do everything yourself, from working on the racecar, driving the hauler to the track and racing on the weekend.  These are things that have been instilled in Hal Goodson from the beginning.  Goodson’s father, Howard, was a constant in victory lane throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s at the speedways of the Eastern Carolinas.  That same winning ethic was passed to Hal at an early age as he had to balance racing with his studies at The Citadel and even had to keep an eye on the clock so as not to miss his college curfew.
