 Career Summary
My dad was a pit crew for Don Benge of Selma, Iowa in the Sportsman and Late Model classes. Both of my parents liked going to the races and all of my desire to race stemmed from there. In 1989 I started pulling tractors and wanted to go to the next level, but that required sooo much more money and travel and I always knew I wanted to race. There were three tracks within 50 miles of my house that had similar Hobby Stock rules and a friend and I put together our first race car. It was a '55 chevy that my dad had bought back in the 70's that was the Eldon Raceway Sportsman class Champion car. He never put it together. We gathered parts and went to the track with it.
 
 Racing Goals
I would like to win a Modified Regional Championship and have some success in the Late Model class that I started to fool around with this year. I also want to spread out a little and try some more new tracks and travel some to winter specials down south again.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
You might say we're a bit superstitious... Naw, not at all, but we never take the sticker off of a new tire, don't eat peanuts in the pits, don't allow the girls around our pits to wear green undies (this happened once and I rolled down the backstretch at Des Moines one night in 2003), and never, ever eat chicken on race day.
