Trey Mitchell
Trey's Bio
Trey was born August 17, 1989 in Houston, Texas. Just short of two years old, Trey and his family moved to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia for his father's career in the oil industry. Around this time the Mitchell's began to notice their son's passion for anything that could take him fast.

It wasn't until years later that Trey's “need for speed” would be met with opportunity. That opportunity came when his parents gave-in to their sons request for a race car. Just shy of his 15th birthday Trey started in an Allison Legacy car, racing in the Lonestar Legacy series. Trey made 4 starts at the end of the 2004. He was awarded the most improved driver award following these four races.

In 2005 Trey started his first full racing season in style by breaking the track record in the Legacy season opener at Red River Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas. Although 2005 saw no wins for the Trey Mitchell Racing team, it did show that Trey was a contender. He ended the season with 7-2nd place finishes and Rookie of the Year honors.

After and impressive 2005 the 16-year old Mitchell made the jump to the highly competitive United States Racing Association Modified Series. The move took Trey from a 120 horsepower scale model stock car to a 450 horsepower open wheel car. It didn't take Mitchell long to learn the ropes. In 2006 he recorded one win, making him the youngest winner in USRA history, along with 6-top 5's, and 9-top 10's, and a Rookie of the Year title for the 2nd year in a row.

The 2007 season brought Trey and team to the Houston Motorsports Park Pro Modified Series. Mitchell won 3 races, and finished second 4 times in 12 starts. A late season crash resulted in a destroyed race car that brought an end to the championship favorite's title hopes. But when one door closes another one opens. The TMR group soon began working on a Late Model car for Trey to begin racing in the Southeast. Mitchell made two starts in the Viper Series in late 2007. In his first late model race ever the young Texan grabbed the pole award for fastest qualifier in a field that included Augie Grill, Bubba Pollard, and Hunter Robbins. Both races ended with top 5 performances from the #47.

In the fall of 2007, the 17 year-old Mitchell packed his bags and moved to the mecca of American motorsports, Charlotte, North Carolina, to begin his freshman year at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

In early 2008 the Trey Mitchell Racing team joined with legendary racer and crew chief Freddie Query, moving it's operation from Texas to Query's Mooresville, North Carolina shop. Mitchell made numerous starts in 2008 with a number of different series. The objective of this season was to familiarize the recently transplanted Texan with new racetracks and competition. Mitchell again ran part-time with the Viper series, ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour, and the Pro All-Stars Series where he posted impressive runs at many tracks throughout the Southeast.

Mitchell has already put together a career season thus far in 2009. The team has focused its attack on the PASS South Series along with various other Super Late Model races across the nation. In 6 starts in Pro All Stars competition in 2009, Trey has reeled in 3- top 5's, and 5-top 10's, with two podium finishes in arguably the most competitive short track series in the country.
