Career

The son of veteran driver Eddie Morgan, Jr., Tony began his career at the tender age of 13 when he drove in an amateur race in Troy, Ohio…His first victory came on May 13, 1973, when he piloted Peachakona to a win in a matinee race at Celina, Ohio…Spent most of his teenage years racing on the Ohio fair circuit, then headed to Kentucky when he received his “A” license at age 18…Emerged in the early ’90s as one of the top drivers on the Chicago racing circuit…For three consecutive campaigns (1995-'97), Morgan was the leading dash-winning driver in North America...In 1996 his total of  853 wins broke the all time single-season record of 843 set by Walter Case Jr. in 1992…Shifted his base of operations to Delaware in the fall of 2006 and has won numerous titles there over the past few seasons...2006 season was Tony’s best ever as he became the second driver in the history of the sport to pass the 1,000 plateau in wins for a single year and captured his fourth North American dash crown…Added a fifth victory title in 2008 when he piloted 961 winners…Recipient of the Driver of the Year trophy from Harness Tracks of America four times (1996, 1997, 2002 and 2006).
Personal

Tony’s greatest racing moment was his first win…favorite food is chicken…first car was an old Chevy pickup truck…favorite thing to do away from racing is “sit at home”…enjoys the day-to-day grind of racing everyday…favorite TV show is “That 70's Show”…greatest non-racing moment was “tricking” his wife into marrying him.
