Bruce Schlicker

Crew Chief: No. 10

Hometown
Clarksburg, WV

Bruce Schlicker started his racing career by helping an ARCA Series truck driver from his hometown in West Virginia, while he was finishing college. Schlicker earned his masters and undergrad degree in Mechanical Engineering from West Virginia University. Unlike most in the industry, Schlicker did not have a direct tie to racing as a kid, his family was in the construction business and he played baseball and football as a kid through high school.

Schlicker’s first job out of college was when he moved to North Carolina and worked in the fab shop for Fitz Motorsports in 2007. To date, Schlickers favorite memory in racing was when Brendan Gaughn won at Road America, it was Gaughn’s first win. His first win was in the Truck Series for Richard Childress Racing and Ty Dillon at Atlanta. 

When Schlicker is not working at Kaulig Racing or at the race track, he enjoys doing projects around his house, as well as, spending time with his three kids.
