The Mount Vernon High School graduate has had nearly 6,000 winners since he drove in his first harness race in 1966. In countless races since that day at the Knox County Fairgrounds, Stillings has forged his place in the annals of harness racing. Most recently, he was inducted into the Ohio Harness Racing Hall of Fame earlier this year.
