Mikah Barnett is 31 years old and lives in Gallatin, TN with his wife Melissa and two daughters Aurora and Brynn. Mikah started his racing career in 2004 with the purchase of a 2002 Corvette Z06. After cutting his teeth in SCCA autocross events, he ended up venturing out onto the “big track” at Nashville Superspeedway which has a 1.5 mile infield road course. After a few sessions there, he became an instructor for several local groups and set his sights on getting started in road racing.
In January, 2008, Mikah sold is ‘02 Z06 and purchased a 2001 Z06 already built for road racing in the SCCA Touring 1 (T1) class. His rookie season proved very successful getting his National race licenses with both SCCA and NASA. In 11 races, he scored 3 overall pole positions, 7 first-in-class pole positions, 6 race wins (including one overall win) and 5 second place finishes. This winning record scored him the 2008 SCCA South Atlantic Road Racing Championship (SARRC) T1 Championship in his first year racing.
As of August 2008, Mikah also has turned the fastest lap in the GTM-R
