If the name Shelby Blackstock doesn’t ring a bell right off the bat, don’t worry. It will soon. Shelby Blackstock is Reba McEntire’s son. While some country fans might remember him as a tiny cutie in a cowboy hat next to his since-divorced parents, he’s grown up quite a bit since his toddler days.
Shelby Blackstock is now a whopping 27 years old and a professional race car driver. After attending the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Racing and the Skip Barber Racing School in 2010, he made his official racing debut at the Mustang Challenge Miller Cup. Since then, he's competed in many high-profile races, and his dream is to become an Indianapolis 500 winner someday. We believe he can do it!
