|In my first year racing I finished 8th in points, with missing 3 nights of racing, and in my last night I got a clean sweep, winning my heat, Trophy Dash and the Feature. In 1999 I had 2 Feature wins and finished 6th in points. In 2000 I finished 5th in points, and on the last night, which was not for points, I won the Feature.|
| Career Summary|
|My dad started racing in 1985 in the Flyer class. He then moved up to Pro Am in 1988 and raced in that class until 1994 when he retired from driving. I had helped Dad ever since I was old enough to be in the garage. Dad decided to get back into racing for the 1998 season, but with me driving.|
| Racing Goals|
|To be competitive in whatever I am in. Have fun and the most important part - WIN!|
| Other Interesting Team Information|
|The choice of the car number was not my idea. I wanted the number 3 but since it was my parents' car they got to choose the number. 16 was the day of the month they started going out (Dad chose the number to suck up to Mom!). The paint scheme is totally out of our control. Each year it is painted by Barge's Body Works.|
