Snapshot: NASCAR Prodigy Winning On The Track At Just 14 Years Old

•, Steve Overmyer

At just 14 years old, he's a surprising sight to the middle-aged men who see him get out of his race car.

"I hop out of the car and they think 'Is that kid driving that car?,'" Bromante told CBS2's Steve Overmyer. "They just don't want me up there cause I'm 14 years old, and I shouldn't be up there, but I am… somehow."

His family owns a 1965 Impala SS with a McBetts Racing Engine producing 700 horsepower, a perfect car for a racing champion, even if it's driven by Gionvanni's mother, Stacey.

"It was a very scary decision," she said about letting her son race. "I had a child that didn't want to play with LEGOs or Matchbox cars."

So Giovanni raced, and in doing so has been winning ever since he was in pre-school.

"Racing has been my life since I was 4 years old," he said. "I haven't known anything different."
