Article


January 2004

Look for a unknown driver to us Nebraskans to be taking his rookie laps in a 360 at Eagle. This young buck who has recently moved to Lincoln from the St. Louis area will add his name to the 2004 rookie list. He has raced everything from a Mini Sprint to the Super and Shifter Karts that he ran for a team based out of Italy in 2003. He hopes the 360 will just be the next step that will take him closer to the open wheel road course(Indy Style)car that he dreams of driving one day.
