2018 was undoubtedly Terry's most satisfying in finishing second in the point race. You see, the champion was his son Austin. Terry partnered with Destiny Motorsports in 2019, again finishing second in the point race, and picking up his 59th career Knoxville win (third all-time). In 2020, he came home third in points, and was seventh in the standings in 2021.

In 2015, Terry had arguably his best season since 2009, winning five features worth more than $10,000. Those included his fourth 360 Nationals win, and his preliminary night at the Knoxville Nationals. Despite battling a fractured vertebrae in his back, TMAC came home third in 410 points last season.

Terry won his seventh career track championship at Knoxville in 2012. It was his first since ripping off six in a row from 1999-2004. In 2014, he added an eighth title at the Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota where he is the all-time leading feature winner. His 56 career wins here entering 2016 are fourth on the all-time list, trailing only Danny Lasoski, Doug Wolfgang and Steve Kinser. In 2014, he finished runner-up in the 410 point race. He was honored for the first time as the class's "Owner of the Year".

Terry has never failed to finish outside of the top ten in points at Knoxville since he was named “Rookie of the Year” in 1985. He was named the “Most Improved” Driver in 1986, and has been honored with the “Junior Fan Club Driver of the Year” on four occasions.

Terry is a veteran of the road as well, having competed with the All Stars and World of Outlaws through the years. He proved he can still beat the big boys when he scored a WoO win in Las Vegas in March of 2015.

Terry is an inductee in both the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (2017) and the Knoxville Raceway Hall of Fame. He has garnered well over 300 wins at 70 different tracks in 23 states entering 2022.
