TYLER PHILLIPS & JOE PHILLIPS
It all began with a Kitty Kat for Christmas 2015 and no snow, away Tyler and Joe went to find some snow and try out drag racing at Wasaga Beach, winning races against 120 racers on a Kitty Kat. After that they were hooked. They attended several other drag races with NASDRA even dad (Joe Phillips) raced. They decided to try out snowcross in Lindsay that same year and realized we needed a 120 sled to race. What do you know Santa brought a 120 sled for Christmas 2016. Tyler’s parents let him know that this first year racing Stock 1 class was a year of learning and not to worry about trophies. Tyler chose not to listen to mom and dad and placed on the podium at almost every race and ending his first season with a third place overall year end trophy. Tyler began racing with a mowhawk on his helmet and that became not only his but his teammates signature. The following year Tyler moved up to the PRO 206 class skipping the Stock 2 class, so once again dad had some building to do over the summer. What was meant to be another learning year, once again became another winning year, he wore his Mohawk and hit the podium every weekend. Tyler and his team was featured in local newspapers, on T.V. and the OSM magazine. Tyler and Joe raced at the Calabogie hill drags winning first place plaques. They also attended the Guinness Book All Female Burnout event supporting local woman’s shelters, Tyler attended many charity events to help raise money for Cancer, autism and diabetes as all of the causes are dear to his heart for many reasons. The next year Tyler continued in the PRO 206 class and joined the CHAMP class again dad was busy over the summer building another wicked machine to race. Tyler joined OSOR alongside his dad Joe Phillips in 2020 and both father and son won championships in their respective clases Tyler 206/120 Mod Champion and Junior 200 Champion, Joe 340 Mod Class Champion. Joe and Tyler are passionate about racing and the experience has made them grow and learn together in many ways. All of the races and events wouldn’t have been possible to attend over the years without their sponsors – Pacelaw Fallen Riders Division, Edge Performance, Home Options Made Easy, Shepherds Utility Equipment, CSI, Glassglowz Media and Backcountry Motorsports Media.
