 Tracks & Series
Eagle Raceway (NE) - Modified #27m

 Awards & Accomplishments
I started July of last year in July in the Modifieds. I had never driven one before and my first night out I made the A Feature at Eagle Raceway. I ended up 38th in Points at Eagle Raceway out of 70 some cars.
 
 Career Summary
I have been going to car races since I was a kid and have enjoyed every minute of it. A few years ago I helped Phil Penney who races a lot at Eagle Raceway with his Modified #21 and I really liked the atmosphere of the tracks. I also traveled with Phil in 1998 to Australia to help him build his car over there and to race a few weeks. In 1999 I bought a Mini-Sprint from Gene Auckland (14G) and decided to give it a try. I raced at Greenwood and Waverly for two years and then sold it and decided to try Modifieds.
 
 Racing Goals
I would really like to be a regular in the A Feature at Eagle Raceway.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
I learned a valuable lesson while Mini-Sprint racing. When you are in the heat race and your helmet has about eight tearoffs, do NOT pull them all off at once! It makes for a long race!
