Bio: Terry capped off an outstanding 2012 with his seventh career track championship at Knoxville. It was his first since ripping off six in a row from 1999-2004. In 2014, he added an eighth title at the Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota where he is the all-time leading feature winner. His 56 career wins at Knoxville are fourth on the all-time list, trailing only Danny Lasoski, Doug Wolfgang and Steve Kinser. In 2014, he finished runner-up in the 410 point race. He was honored for the first time as the class's "Owner of the Year".

“TMAC” is a four-time 360 Nationals winner. He has never failed to finish outside of the top ten in points at Knoxville since he was named “Rookie of the Year” in 1985. He was named the “Most Improved” Driver in 1986, and has been honored with the “Junior Fan Club Driver of the Year” on four occasions.

Terry is a veteran of the road as well, having competed with the All Stars and World of Outlaws through the years. He proved he can still beat the big boys when he scored a WoO win in Las Vegas in 2015.
