The fourth driver to retire a car number at Elmsford Raceway, Paul won more than 50 racing plaques by the tender age of 14. He won the adult-focused ERI Can-Am Series while still eligible to compete in our Junior Can-Am events with cars built solely by him on budget drawn from a strictly limited allowance! That limited allowance required Paul to build his own chassis from scratch, which he did without adult help.
A frequent concourse winner, Paul was also the leader of one of our premier endurance racing teams in 1970s, “Team Us”, comprised of other junior racers, Bruce Holcomb, Wade Murphy and Alan Wilton.
Today, Paul is a successful attorney in Westchester, NY
and the Garcia Racing Team
