John Mickel was born with oval racing in his blood. His father competed in local stock car events then introduced a young John to Mini Stocks, running on quarter mile ovals, at the tender age of 10.

His love for speed became more pronounced as he started to take podium positions in everything he raced, becoming a multi junior champion before the age of 12 on the short ovals.

Before the age of 19, John had already become a World and European Champion, again on short ovals with Superstox, an open wheeled racer similar to American Outlaws.

In 2001, a 1.5 mile oval was built at Rockingham UK, and in Lausitz Germany a 2 mile oval, to bring the speed and thrill of the NASCAR vision of motorsport to Europe. By the end of 2001, John was UK and World Legends Champion (road course) and European SCSA Champion (large ovals - equivalent ASA) with his sights set on his personal ambition to race NASCAR.
