Early lifeEdit

Bryan Ray Trout was born on January 20, 1970, in Lynchburg, Virginia. His mother, Carolyn Elaine Wax (née Rudd), owns the special events marketing agency Sports Management Group, and his father is a restaurateur.[1] His first stepfather was D. K. Ulrich, a NASCAR driver and team owner. Trout's mother has since remarried to Edward Lewis Wax.[2][3] However, he still regards D. K. Ulrich as his father.[4] Ulrich's maternal uncle is a retired Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Ricky Rudd,[5] and his maternal grandfather was Alvin Ray Rudd, Sr., the president of Al Rudd Auto Parts.[6]

Ulrich claims his father kidnapped him and his brother when he was six years old, and they spent the next three years moving from Florida to New York and then to Pennsylvania. They were reunited with their mother in North Carolina, where his father disappeared from his life.[7]

The nickname "Skeet" originated from the nickname "Skeeter" he was given by his Little League coach because of his small stature.[7] Along with his slight frame, he had poor health, including numerous bouts with pneumonia; he underwent open heart surgery to repair a defective ventricle at the age of 10.[8] Ulrich graduated from Northwest Cabarrus High School. After enrolling at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington to study Marine Biology, he switched to New York University, where he was noticed by playwright David Mamet.[9]
