Aaron Turkey

Aaron Turkey is #68 on GSR in the 360 class and is Glenn’s 1st cousin. His Grandfather, Frankie Turkey, died at just 27 years old in a car accident, but before his death was the person responsible for introducing Glenn to the world of racing. The colour orange, prevalent at Ohsweken Speedway was inspired by and remains a tribute to the late Frankie Turkey. Aaron raced in the Crate Sprint series since 2014 with 7 career wins. Although favored for the championship in the crate division in 2019, Glenn chose to promote Aaron to the 360 class, gifting him with his old sprint car. So rather than go into 2019 on the hunt for a championship, he entered as a rookie in a tougher class, and it was nothing short of tough. Aaron and his team had a lot of challenges in the shop, in the pits and on the oval. Aaron crashed a few cars, costing Glenn tens of thousands in repairs and replacements and his team seemed to struggle with the car all year. Halfway through the season, Glenn discovered that Aaron was setting up his car all wrong and he was disappointed that Aaron wasn’t spending more time in the shop or in the gym. Aaron was also working away from home so he had to be away each week and show up just in time for racing, putting his whole team at a disadvantage. Aaron did manage his first 360 win at Merritville Speedway during a very truncated pandemic racing season in 2020. He also has a son who arrived to him and girlfriend Madison in October 2020 and they’re pregnant with their second child who will be born just before the 2022 season gets underway. Going in to 2022, Aaron has a lot of improvements to make to satisfy Glenn, who wants to see more wins out of his young protegé.
