Mike Potter is a NASCAR veteran. He was born on July 4, 1949 and currently resides in Johnson City, Tennessee.

Over the course of his Nextel Cup career, Potter raced 60 races. Every season he raced was part-time. The most races he ran in a season was 11 in both 1983 and 1992. 1983 was his official year as a rookie, because he ran more than 8 races. His best career finish was a 15th at Nashville Speedway in 1981.

In the early 2000's he ran a few races in the Busch Series, primarily for Means Racing during 2003. Potter attempted five races in 2004 for Johnny Davis Motorsports but only made two of them.

Potter returned to the NASCAR Busch Series in 2007. He attempted two races in the #00 Chevrolet. The car was a third entry from DDL Motorsports, a team co-owned by Johnny Davis. Mike made the field for Milwaukee, his first race back, but missed the other race he attempted at Watkins Glen.

In 2008, Mike ran a variety of races for Johnny Davis Motorsports. His first race in 2008 was at his home track of Bristol. He ended up finishing last in the #0 Chevrolet, a Johnny Davis Motorsports secondary car. After Kertus Davis left the team, Potter took over the reigns of the #01 SponsorDavis.com Chevrolet, the team's primary entry, for a couple of races. Mike ended up finishing a respectable 29th at the Camping World RV Sells 200 in June.

Besides NASCAR, Potter also has experience in many other forms of stock car racing, including Hooters Pro Cup.
