 Tracks & Series
Shelby County Speedway (IA) - Modified #21n

 Awards & Accomplishments
We have only made two A Features. We finished second in one B Feature & 3rd in another. Out of 15 rookies, we finished in 8th place. This all took place at Sunset Speedway in the Pro Am division.
 
 Career Summary
I became involved in racing from my dad who has raced for more than 25 years. My first year was exciting and very stressful. I learned that it wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. The second year was awesome! I had so much fun! I made my first A Feature, started 22nd out of 24 cars, and finished 14th. I raced two years in the Pro Am division. This will be my first year in the Modified division. It's a whole new ball game. I'm hoping to do good and be competitive.
 
 Racing Goals
To win an A Feature or more and then a Championship some day.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
I feel sick on the day I race until I get out onto the track, then it all goes away. 21 has been my favorite number since I was a kid.
