I have loved cars and racing since I could crawl. I am grateful to my parents, teachers, friends and the local community who have supported me and encouraged me to chase my dreams. I am dedicated to always do my very best - and not just at the track. I also try hard to do well in school. I will be starting 8th grade at Brook's Middle School where I am an honors student and take honors classes and also made the school volleyball team. Previously, at Wood View Elementary, I served on Student Council, School Safety Patrol, and was involved in both technology club and the business club. I also participate in the Bolingbrook STEM program and received a scholarship to Discovery Academy. My other interests include Little League Baseball where I have played 11 seasons over the last 6 years, Taekwondo where I recently earned my blue belt, Swimming, Piano, and exploring the outdoors with my German Shepherd Dog, Cody. I also enjoy slot cars, radio controlled cars, and racing against friends on XBox. To relax I like designing and building new and creative projects and taking things apart to see how they work. I also enjoy creating videos, reading, drawing, and fishing with my grandfather.
I know that not everyone is as fortunate as I am, so I am always looking for opportunities to help others. Whether its volunteering to pack meals, help out at local charity or church events, or just being nice to others, I do my best to pay it forward and to perform random acts of kindness. Our race team also partners with organizations that share our passion for helping others to achieve and excel. Since 2018 we have been partnered with the Bolingbrook STEM Association. In 2017 we helped the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, and we coordinated a Torch Run night at the Speedway that raised over four thousand dollars for them. Prior to that we assisted in raising funds and bringing attention to cystic fibrosis.
I compete in the Central States Region (CSR) Super Cup series. In 2016 I earned Rookie of the Year. In 2017 I finished 5th place out of 18 drivers and earned the Hard Charger award. In 2018 I finished 3rd in points against 17 drivers of all ages. Shortly after the 2018 season we lost our car and all of our equipment in a fire but were fortunate to acquire a new car for the 2019 season and had our best season yet, finishing 2nd in the points chase for 2019 and tying for fastest qualifier with the season champion.

2020 Schedule for Michael Mucha Racing
From the School District Web Site Nov 2016:
It was Career Day at Wood View Elementary School with guests ranging from District Superintendent Dr. James Mitchem to representatives from the Village of Bolingbrook, the Fountaindale Library and the Joliet Slammers. But the most unique presenters were Randy Mucha and his Wood View 4th grade son, Michael, who races in half scale NASCAR race cars. Students not only received quick lessons about what it takes to be a race car driver but also learned how math relates to the car’s gears and suspension and how physics helps keep a fast moving object stuck to a banked oval. Mr. Mucha and Michael also took students outside to see Michael’s car.

SUPER CUP CAR SPECS
Super Cup race cars (or Mini Cup cars) are the same as a NASCAR but exactly 1/2 the size. The cars have full tube chassis, rack and pinion steering, upper and lower control arms and fully adjustable coil over shocks both front and rear. A full cage and a five point safety harness makes these cars one of the safest forms of racing available.
Super Cups are known nation wide and you can almost always find them racing at a track in your local area. Super Cups offer competitive side by side racing with a fully enclosed car for safety. Super Cups come with all the same bodies that NASCAR uses. The cars can achieve speeds of over 100 mph but usually the tracks raced are 1/4 to 1/2 mile paved oval tracks and the Super Cups will be racing between 50 - 80 MPH. The focus of these cars is not top speed as much as competitiveness.
Safety: Full roll cage and body for protection similar to Sprint Cup cars and a 5 point harness, helmet, head and neck restraint (HANS), and full firesuit, shoes and gloves.
Engine: Honda GX390 - Blue Printed 20+ H.P. 4 Stroke, OHV Single Cylinder - Air Cooled - Electric Start - Dry Centrifugal Clutch.
Body: Hand Laid Fiberglass with Carbon Fiber Strips - Lexan Windows - Lasercut Stainless Steel Hinges - Available in Chevy Impala SS, Monte Carlo, Ford Fusion, Dodge Charger, Toyoya Camry and others.
Chassis: 1-1/8th by .065 Chromoly Cage Structure with 1 1/4 Square Frame Rails - Quick Adjust Upper Control Arms - Toe Adjustments - Movable Pedals - Rack and Pinion Steering - Adjustable Coil-over Shocks (Steel or Aluminum) - Fully Tunable Suspension.
Wheels and Tires: 8 by 6.5 Wheels - 15X7X8 Hoosier Racing Slicks.
Nationwide/Organized: The cars and rules are set nationwide by sanctioning bodies and local track rules. So if you travel or need to move, you can still race competitively wherever you go.
Equality: The governing rules keep the cars competitive and allow for the driver to determine his own fate on the track.
WGN feature about the Central States Region Super Cups at Grundy County Speedway from 10 years ago - still accurate today:
Racing Super Cups is one of the least expensive motor sports to participate in, but like anything, doing things the right way, the safe way, and the winning way takes money.
