I had the opportunity to interview one of the original founders of the WFO Racing Team, Phil Underwood. When it comes to being passionate about cars, racing, WFO, and let’s not forget – Grand Nationals, this guy has it. Phil found his passion with cars at the age of 16, when he got his drivers license. Well, his license and his 1969 Firebird.
Below is an excerpt from the interview:
* You’re one of the original founders of WFO. What made the decision to start this organization?
Phil: It was decided that we all wanted something to symbolize that we were a tight group of people with a common interest that enjoyed racing cars and helping each other out.
* At what age did you begin your interest in racing?
Phil: The day I got my license “age 16” and my 1969 Firebird.
* Do you have a favorite race car?
Phil: Any 60’s or early 70’s muscle car.
* In your own words, what is WFO to you today?
Phil: A tight group of people who enjoy racing each other, helping other members improve and progress with their cars.
