 Awards & Accomplishments
In 2005 we had 5 Top 5 finishes, 5 Top 10 finishes, and finished 8th out of 23 in Points. In 2006 we finished 2nd 6 times, 3rd 6 times, 4th 4 times, 5th 3 times, and were the Crusier Point Champions. Now I am racing a Hobby Stock to see how I like it. Right now we have been having a lot of troubles. On the first half lap at Play Day, I lost my driveshaft, so I didn't get to run at all that day. And the first night of racing we had problems with overheating, so we are just going to try and finish a race now.
 
 Career Summary
Before my kids were born I was going to every race on Saturdays. I rarely ever missed a race unless for something very important. I have wanted to race for a long time ever since the Crusiers came out. I got to thinking about it harder and harder. Then two years ago we decided that it was time to race! In 2007 we did pretty good for all the problems we had with the car. I was very proud because every week we had to fix something. So with that I think we did pretty good.
 
 Racing Goals
To finish a race safely and in one piece. Get the hang of driving by myself now, as I have moved up to Hobby Stock from Cruiser, so now I have to run both the brake and gas, which will probably be the biggest change I will have. To never roll my car ever again, as four times is way too many! After taking 2008 off due family issues and other reasons, we hope to have better luck next year when we plan to be back out, especially regarding all the overheating and repairing of the car every week.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The reason I chose #38 is because I like both Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and Jr., and their numbers are 3 and 8. And also for my birthday, which is March 8.
