Guilford College ran this wonderful profile of Charles Wimbley, MMFS Class of ’22. The article details Charles’s strong foundation for success from MMFS and his family, and his road to achieving his dream of becoming a NASCAR driver. Below are excerpts from the article.
“Having a singular passion for NASCAR has served Charles Wimbley ’26 well. Drawn to the sport since age 8, the first-year student from Brooklyn, New York, is a Sport Management major and already has a racing internship lined up.
“Charles plans to be the best NASCAR driver he can be. The only one stopping him from achieving his dream is himself, he says. Such all-out drive can be all-consuming. However, Charles tempers it with a healthy dose of humility and faith in God’s plan for his life.
“With supportive parents and a well-rounded education from Mary McDowell Friends School, Charles had a foundation for success heading into college. He was interested in Guilford for its Quaker values and resourcefulness. Its proximity to the NASCAR capital of Charlotte didn’t hurt either.”
