 Career Summary
I wanted to race as long as I can remember. My dad, Grandpa Ed, and Uncle Tom took me to the track all the time. Grandpa Ed gave me his old Buick to build just a few months before he died. My dad built the car and we were off. I was first in Rookie points most of the 2000 season, then had too many DNF's at the end of the season and finished 2nd. We did manage a Top 6 finish, and for having a car that was probably more "stock" than any of the others, we were very happy.
 Racing Goals
Keep learning and improving. Win a Track Championship.
 Other Interesting Team Information
My crew is always joking around with each other. We have a saying... "BOB DID IT!!!" We have fun! If you are not having fun then there is no sense to racing.
