Two brothers in Troy have turned their passion for cars into a racing club for other car enthusiasts in town.
JaMarcus Farrior, 22, and Demarco Farrior, 24, worked together to start the “Do It Big” racing club in Troy in 2010.
“We’re both really into cars,” JaMarcus said. “So that’s why we started the club.”
According to the brothers, the club currently has about 20 active members, along with numerous supporters.
“We haven’t had any of our own races yet, but we go out and support other racers in other areas,” JaMarcus said.
JaMarcus, the vice president of the club, owns a black and white 1994 Camaro Z28. Demarco, club president, owns a black 1994 Camaro. Their cousin, Brandon Owens, 22, is also the owner of a red and white Camaro.
“We’ve just always loved Camaros,” Demarco said. “We think they’re the best.”
The brothers were born in Montgomery and grew up in Georgia. They, along with their parents and a third brother, moved to Troy several years ago.
Benita Bradley-Farrior, mother of the car lovers, said their passion for cars extends to older members of the family, too.
“We have other family members that love cars,” she said,
“and I think growing up around them is what made them love cars, too.”
