Crowd Pleaser: ‘Hollywood’ Mike McVetta

Watching Mike McVetta, a 38-year-old pavement racer from Medina, Ohio, drive an open-wheel car is worth the price of admission as evidenced by his nickname, “Hollywood.”. After 11 years of racing the winged 305 sprint cars in Ohio, McVetta was looking to do something different. “They didn’t like my creativity,” McVetta said with a laugh. One year I destroyed the car in the winged show the night before and another time I broke the axle in practice,” McVetta said. Now that McVetta races supermodifieds, USAC Silver Crown cars and 410 winged pavement sprint cars on a regular basis, he says the three styles of cars are not comparable. There is a lot to them and a lot going on,” McVetta explained. It’s not like in the super or sprint car where it’s hammer down and go.
