 Career Summary
My dad started my racing career many years ago when he started racing karts. He got my brother involved when he was a kid, so naturally I had to try it when I was old enough. My first time out I got the need for speed and never stopped. I moved up through the karting divisions and into my brother's old Hobby Stock in 2004. In the off season of 2004 I had a lot of influence from Brian Scott to move into the Limited Late Model division. I had to convince my dad, but in 2005 I rolled onto the track in a Limited Late Model, hoping to give Brian some competition. Over the years our team has worked on improving the equipment, and I have steadily gained experience, which has allowed us to move into the Super Late Model division.
 
 Racing Goals
My goal in racing is to keep it fun. When racing is not fun anymore, then it is time to quit. I would like to win a SLMR A Feature, but I want to be consistent as well as competitive.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
In Go-Karts I always ran number 88 because I was born in 1988. When I got to Hobby Stocks, the 82 was already on the car from my brother so I just left it. When I moved up to the Limited Late Model Division I wanted to run the number 88 but Brian Scott had already claimed that number. I tried to buy it but he would not sell. Everyone already knew me as the number 82 so I just decided to leave it.
