 Career Summary
I have been a race fan since my mom & dad took me to the Knoxville Nationals at age one. My dad and uncle Tony also raced in the Flyer, Street Stock, and Late Model divisions. I am a regular Saturday night fan at Eagle Raceway. I started racing Junior Sprints in 2005 and again in 2006. In 2007 I moved up to Restrictor, and after a sucessful year I moved up again to the 600 class. After another year of running up front, we decided it was time to race with the best Mini-Sprint drivers in the Multi class. 2010 was my rookie season in the 360 Sprint Car. It was definitely a learning experience with its ups and downs. One highlight was sitting on the pole and leading 5 laps at Junction Motor Speedway. The lows were hurting a motor at I-90 Speedway and getting upside down at Eagle Raceway. Hoping for better things to come in 2011.
 Racing Goals
I hope to win a few A Features this year, have fun, learn and improve on last season, and end the season with the same top wing that I start with. I want to eventually drive race cars for a living. If you're interested in any more information or a race schedule to come watch me, call (402)432-8129.
 Other Interesting Team Information
Before I go out on the track, I ask my uncle Darryl (Godfather) up above to keep me safe. I chose #12 because I turned 12 my first year of racing. Going to the races taught me numbers at an early age, and I was able to recite World of Outlaw drivers' biographies from memory at age three. I get in trouble every now and then for reading racing magazines and articles on the Internet or drawing cars in class, but racing comes first!
