Q: Why do you think you've been so successful?
A: I have been successful because of a lot of hard work and help from my crew and family.

Q: Why #31?

Q: Thunder Road has a pretty huge fan base, how does it feel having so many fans for an event you participate in?
A: It is great to have all the fans. If we didn't have the fan base we have that support us and the track there would be no racing.

Q: What's your favorite car?
802 Toyota's Shawn Fluery - Thunder Road SpeedBowlA: My favorite car is a '73 split bumper Camaro (if you are talking about street car), but if you are talking race car, my favorite is the one that wins me the race!

Even though you can't buy Shawn's Camry, we do have quite a bit of "civilian" Camrys in stock now. Check out our new Toyota Camry inventory here! Stay tuned for regular updates on Shawn's progress in building his race-ready Toyota Camry!
