the skate parks of Irvine California to the top drag
strips around the country, Mike has been recognized
as one of the top drivers in his first full racing
season in Sport Compact racing. This young sensation
has a lot of people taking notice of his skills as
a competitor and a driver.
has always taken interest in cars. He first started
his venture into import drag racing when he was 15
while adding parts to his 1988 VW GTI. Selling the
car once old enough, he decided to purchase his first
Honda civic. It wasn’t long before Mike was
doing his best to mod his first Honda to make it run
faster. In March of 1998 Mike entered his first sanctioned
drag race called the Street Legal Drags held in Pomona
California. There he learned the ins and outs of what
it takes to make an import drag race vehicle go down
the track. After a couple years of racing his Honda
at these events, he decided that he wanted to build
a full time track vehicle.
the year 2000, the goal was set out to build the world’s
fastest fwd vehicle. He chose a 1991 Honda CRX as
the base platform in which to do so. Mike and his
father Earl worked diligently on this vehicle until
it was up to the challenge of competition. On September
of 2001 the Laskey Racing CRX hit the track to qualify
in the top 8 at its first event ever in the pro class.
The car and Mike were in tune with each other and
made it all the way to the semi-finals. This was the
first race of much more to come.
and Earl worked very hard at prepping the car to become
the world’s fastest uni-body CRX and at this
time Laskey Racing has the world’s fastest CRX.
Last season the car ran hard and came up 2nd place
overall in IDRC competition. This year Mike and team
lead the NDRA race series in points with the STR/Laskey
racing drag CRX but late season breakage dropped them
to 3rd for the year.
only is Mike a driver but also he is a die-hard fan
of drag racing. His heart and desire to win make him
one of the most competitive racers today. Some of
the sports top racers have taken notice of him such
as Kenny Tran, Jojo Callos and Christian Rado.
