Zachary Doell Drives to Novice Junior Dragster Championship

Of all the classes Zachary Doell takes as a fourth-grader at Brookside Intermediate School in Sheffield Village, Ohio, he likes math most because he’s absolutely mad about multiplication, addition, subtraction and division.

But when he’s not crunching numbers in a classroom, he’s crushing it on football fields, baseball diamonds and basketball courts, because he likes the competition and — in his words — “running right into people.”

He also likes to spend time at Sky Zone Trampoline Park and at the local video store, where he’s earned the nickname “Scary Movie Boy” because he talks with employees there about his favorite frightening movies, including “Lake Placid,” featuring a 30-foot long crocodile on the loose in a small town.

According to his mom, Cheryl, and dad, Dan, he’s a kind boy who recently held the door open for a mother and her children at a store without being asked to. He’s also sometimes silly, as he breaks into song or dance for the sole purpose of making to someone laugh.

But when he’s not doing that, he’s fast and focused in the cockpit of his junior dragster.

In fact, he means it when he says that he’s thinking about winning — and little else — as he’s traveling 50 miles per hour toward the finish line at Summit Motorsports Park.

With thirteen points and two feature wins, Zachary earned the 2016 Bear Motorsports Novice Junior Dragster presented by Wiseco championship, and was recognized for his efforts during Summit Motorsports Park's 43rd Accel Banquet of Champions, Jan. 14, 2017 at Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio.
