 Career Summary
I've been attending races since I was six months old at Sunset Speedway in Omaha. I decided to join the pit crew for Jerry Wancewicz in 1986 and was his Crew Chief on his Late Models until 1993. Then I was the Crew Chief for J.J. Cooper and his Late Models from 1994 to 2000. Then I joined forces with Craig Preble in 2001, helping him with his Late Models until 2005. That's when the bug to drive something of my own hit and I decided to get into Karting.
 
 Racing Goals
To race cleanly, have the respect of my fellow competitors at all times, and to win my fair share of races.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
I've been around racing most of my life. It took the creation of Little Sunset Speedway a few years ago to finally get me to trade in the wrenches for a racing helmet to give driving a try. A friend let me try out his Kart for a few hot laps. Next thing you know, I bought the Kart from him, and have been having a great time ever since! I recommend to anyone who has the "itch" to drive, regardless of what it is, to give it a try. You won't regret it!
