He was unstoppable by winning six races consecutively.  He was a 2001 Nascar Heartland Region Champion.  He advanced into the ARCA Series where he raced on tracks in Atlanta, Charlotte and other major speedways.   He stopped his racing career in 2005 to dedicate time with his wife and girls in their sport activities.  After the girls had completed their high school activities, he traded softball gloves for racing tires in 2020 because of his love for racing.  Along with racing, Tandy had many talents with his profession.  He was the owner and operator of M & M Lawncare that had a wide range of offerings for landscaping and construction services. Tandy had a servant’s heart and was always willing to help his family, friends and anyone in need.  He was a member of Cowles Chapel United Methodist Church.
