Velocity: “Ashley Creed you are 19 years old & you race in the North American Big Rig Racing Truck 58; what kind of truck is that?”

Ashley Creed: “A 58 Kenworth with L10 Cummins.”

Velocity: “Is this your 1st year racing with the Big Rigs?”

Ashley Creed: “Yes, I did 2 heat races last year, but this is my 1st full year.”

Velocity: “I was told racing runs in your family?”

Ashley Creed: “Yes my dad (Truck 59 Glen Creed) has been racing forever.”

Velocity: “So I am guessing that is where racing comes from, you were part of a team & decided to start racing?”

Ashley Creed: “Yes from the time I was little, I always wanted to drive with him, I would go to all the races, tried to help him & stuff. After that I wanted to race, so he put me into a hornet race car, it took some convincing to get my mom to let me get into the trucks.”

Velocity: “So you raced hornets, where did you race them?”

Ashley Creed: “At our local track Western Speedway Victoria, BC.”

Velocity: “So after you raced hornets did you go straight to Big Rigs from there or did you race something else?”

Ashley Creed: “Hornets to Big Rigs.”

Velocity: “So what is the difference from racing a small car to a Big Rig?”

Ashley Creed: “It handles a lot different & I am sitting way up higher, it is just a complete different feeling, so much fun though.”

Velocity: “I see that you were just at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, how big was that track?

Ashley Creed: “A 3/8 mile track.”

Velocity: “I see in the main there were 10 Trucks, how many heats were there & did you have any more trucks?”

Ashley Creed: “Yes we had 1 Heat race each & there were 11 trucks in total but one was out with mechanical.”

Velocity: “So racing runs in your family what do like about racing?”

Ashley Creed: “I just love getting in that car or truck, going as fast as I can & chasing the other cars/trucks down.”

Velocity: “So your plan is to complete a full season. Do you have any particular goal for your 1st year?”

Ashley Creed: “I would love to win a heat or something, but really just trying to keep my line, practice my line, stay in the group & not get lapped.”

Velocity: “So most tracks have 2 grooves, do you like the top or bottom?”

Ashley Creed: “I personally like the bottom groove best, because I can keep my line tighter when I run the bottom groove.”

Velocity: “So this is your 1st full season, is there any advice you can suggest to someone wanting to get into Big Rig Racing?”

Ashley Creed: “I would say start with a car, get really comfortable with the car & then move into the Big Rigs. When you are in a Big Rig it is a whole different kind of thing & you want to be a pretty good racer 1st”

Velocity: “This season, is there a particular track you are looking forward to race at?”

Ashley Creed: “Tenino, it is a cool track.”

Velocity: “Then after that, you will be at your home race track; Western Speedway Victoria, BC on August 27, where you will have a lot of fans at?”

Ashley Creed: “All my friends & Family will be there to cheer me on.”

Velocity: “Who are your sponsors?

Ashley Creed: “Creeds Trucking, Wilson and Proctor & Kal Tire.”

Velocity: “Thank you for your time & good luck in your next race.”

Ashley Creed: “Thank you so much.”
