Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Rick Mast page on 28 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Richard K. Mast is a former NASCAR driver. He competed in both the Winston Cup (now Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series) and Busch Series (now Xfinity Series) before retiring in 2002. He holds a business administration degree from Blue Ridge Community College.

Mast grew up in racing as his father and uncle were both race team owners. He began racing at age 16 at Natural Bridge Speedway and Eastside Speedway, after he traded an Angus cattle for his first car. After racing at the local track level for the decade, Mast began running the Busch Series in 1982, and had four top-ten finishes in 11 eleven starts in his No. 22. Mast's first full-time season came in 1985, where he had fifteen top-ten finishes and finished seventh in the season points. Two years later, he won his first NASCAR race, at the Grand National 200, then followed it up with another win the next week. He finished 11th in points that year. He improved to eighth position in 1988 the same year he made his Winston Cup debut for Buddy Baker at the Busch 500, finishing 28th at that race. Mast won five Busch races while running full-time the next two years, before focusing his efforts on the Cup Series.
