He was born September 7, 1980 in Staunton, a son of Frankie Marie (Pullin) Campbell of Swoope and the late Robert Mitchell “Pi” Acord.
From a young age, Wesley loved cars and retained that love throughout his life, going as far as attending and driving in the Richard Petty Driving School, taking road trips and having a need for high speed.
