Eric Wilkins: The Whiz Kid

As Eric Wilkins surveyed his new rural Indiana home, he could only smile when he considered the twists and turns he had taken. While Wilkins’ family was interested in racing, he was the first to compete. “My kids were 7 and 9 at the time, so I decided that it was time to watch them grow up a bit and not focus on me and my driving,” Wilkins said. At the time of his injury, he was racing for Michael Burkhart. Wilkins was back and best of all, he wasn’t just a field filler. “Michael Burkhart helped me get back into driving again,” Wilkins said. “Michael told me they were trying to get more help in Indiana,” Wilkins said. “At first, we talked about me going to Indiana, getting a motorhome and just staying there in the summer,” Wilkins said. Wilkins isn’t trying to change things or get in the way.
