Gloucester native pursuing his NASCAR dreams
Gloucester County native Brian Morehouse is pursuing his dream of working with NASCAR. He left his roots and is currently helping to ensure the race cars are up to date with the latest safety equipment.
A 1987 graduate of Gloucester High School and a 1992 graduate of Rappahannock Community College, Morehouse grew up wanting to race cars. Even though he isn’t behind the wheel of the race cars, he’s just as happy helping to make that car as safe and as competitive as possible.
Morehouse started racing shortly after high school at what is now called Virginia Motor Speedway in Saluda. "After racing for a while, my dad and I realized I was not a race car driver," Morehouse said. "So I worked for the track."
After working for a while at the Saluda track, Morehouse said Langley Speedway in Hampton offered him a position as race official in the early 2000s. He stayed at Langley for seven years and also worked over 17 years with Dominion Virginia Power in Gloucester.
Morehouse said that whole time he knew in the back of his mind that racing was his real passion and desperately wanted to be involved with it again.
