 Awards & Accomplishments
Haven't won an A Feature yet, but did finish 2nd once (this past year). Many B Feature and heat race wins. First victory was a D Feature (remember those days?) in 1989.
 Career Summary
I was one of those guys that came out of the stands that said, "I can do that!" Well, it took 12 years to get to the point where I can mean it! I started in 1988 at Eagle in the Flyer class, moved to Sunset in the Bronco (now Pro Am) class the next year, and have been there ever since.
 Racing Goals
We want to win that first A Feature and get a respectible Top 10 finish in the points.
 Other Interesting Team Information
We are very superstitious - No chicken or any other poultry on race day!
