Off the Wall With: Spencer Massey

Welcome to Off the Wall With…, where we ask your favorite drivers five questions that are…well, off the wall! We’ll check in with a different driver each week to get a peek into life outside the race car. This week, we’ve got NHRA Top Fuel driver Spencer Massey on the hot seat.

What’s fun besides racing?

Massey: Drag racing is my entire life. Pretty much drag racing IS my fun, but I love traveling. I love driving down the road. I drive my motorhome to all the races, traveling from town to town and getting to hang out with all our fans, that’s what I love doing. But drag racing is what I really love.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?

Massey: To win the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Massey: Caddyshack.

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?

Massey: Frozen pizzas.

Most memorable fan interaction?

Massey: When I won the Gatornationals this year, all the fans were so deeply-hearted happy for our entire Don Schumacher Racing team because Don Schumacher had cancer and just beat it. For both Ron Capps and my team to have won, everybody out here was so blessed to be here and honored for us all to have won for Don Schumacher. That’s my favorite.
