The view of idols is different when looking at them eye-to-eye. As a younger man, Anthony Simone (No. 95 Crown Modular Chevrolet) watched many of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series veterans from afar and aspired to be like them. Now, at 28 years of age, it is time to not only be like them, but also to beat them.
“I’ve seen Don Thomson Jr., Peter Gibbons and Mark Dilley race dozens of times and thought of how cool it would be to have that kind of success,” Simone said. “Now to be able to race against them is pretty awesome.”

Now, at 21, he is the defending champion, of all things, a stock car racing series – the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Sirius Satellite Radio.
