Terry Cook's Biography
Terry began his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series back in 1996 after a successful career on the short tracks of Michigan and Ohio. Terry won the Flat Rock Speedway Late Model track championship in 1989 as a rookie and again in 1990. He followed that with championships at Toledo Speedway in 1992, and Sandusky Speedway in 1995.
As a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series rookie in 1997, Terry won the Bud Pole at the demanding Flemington Speedway with a new track record. With only 15 starts, Terry drove the SealMaster Racing Chevrolet to a fifth-place finish in the Cintas Rookie of the Year points standings.
Running his first full NCTS series in 1998, Terry surprised many veterans with his first top 10 finish at the Texas Motor Speedway in June of that year, and then surprised the NASCAR world with his victory at Flemington. Terry and the team reached their stride in the following five races, with a runner-up at Heartland Park Topeka, and a fifth-place finish at Louisville Motor Speedway after starting on the Bud Pole.
Terry's growth as a driver was evident in 1999, when he finished a strong 15th in points, and solidified his place among NASCAR's rising stars.
