(Editor’s note: The following article, written about former Baxley resident Travis Upchurch, was published in The Mercury, Manhattan, Kansas, in April. The article is being republished with permission. Travis is the son of Kenny and Laurie Jo Upchurch. He is the grandson of Gwen and the late Eddie Rae Upchurch and Judy and the late Joe Chamberlain, all of Baxley.)
Not every artist uses a paintbrush and a canvas to create beautiful work. Travis Upchurch, 29, just needs his yellow and blue Suzuki GSX-R600 and a parking lot.
