Kerry Micks (born January 10, 1961 in Mount Albert, Ontario) is a Canadian race car driver in the NASCAR Pinty's Series.

CASCAR Super Series[edit]

Kerry and his wife Susan formed Micks Motorsports in 1992 to compete in the CASCAR Super Series. From 1990 to 2006 he drove in CASCAR, where is the all-time leader in starts with 165 and second in wins with 24 in the series. Micks won his first and only CASCAR Super Series Championship in 1993.

Micks was the first Canadian driver to race a Ford when Ford of Canada came on board for the CASCAR Super Series in 1995.[1]

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series[edit]

After NASCAR completed their buyout of CASCAR in 2007, Micks began to race in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. He has had 3 wins Montreal, Trois-Rivières (2007); Mosport Speedway (2008) as well as 2 poles Barrie (2007); Montreal (2008). In 2009 he had little success, but in 2010 things looked promising he lost on the last lap to D.J. Kennington after winning the pole and leading most of the laps in July at Autodrome St-Eustache and had 6 top fives finishing 4th in the final point standings.

In 2012 Micks stopped competing full-time on the Canadian Tire circuit, splitting the races with fellow veteran driver and 1994 CASCAR Champion Mark Dilley.[2] Micks would run the road courses in the #02, while Dilley would run the oval circuits. Micks would races one oval however, entering the teams road course car, renumbered at the 56, at Riverside International Speedway. Micks retired from the race after just 4 laps, giving him his only DNF on the season.

Micks continues his part-time schedule in 2013, racing 6 races for Micks Motorsports, while added an additional two races in the #98 Ford owned by Canadian NASCAR pioneer Jim Bray. Micks would DNF out of 4 of his races entered in 2013, including both in Bray's cars. Micks substituted for Dilley at the oval at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, surprising the field by winning the pole and leading 86 laps before dropping out with ignition failure.[3]

For the third season in a row Micks would split 2014 with Mark Dilley. Micks again enter his road course car into two oval races, at Riverside and Barrie Speedway, this time numbered as the 9. Micks entered a Dodge at Barrie, making it one of the only times in Micks career he would race something other than a Ford.
