Tommy Kendall Hit It Hard and Fast

Kendall kicked off his driving career in IMSA GTU, wheeling Clayton Cunningham’s Mazda RX-7 before landing a ride in a factory-backed Chevy Beretta. Kendall scored his first ride in Cunningham’s RX-7 after Jack Baldwin left the team. It took time for Binks to be convinced Kendall had the talent to succeed. “When he first came on the scene, he did pretty good; Formula Mazda and some of those cars,” Binks said. He won four races in 1988 on his way to the GTU crown, his third championship in as many years. However, after a dismal campaign, Chevrolet was no longer willing to foot the bill for the car and Kendall moved on.
