| Career Summary|
|I have been a race fan all my life. I have visited different racetracks all over the country since I was two years old. I had my first motorcycle when I was five. I raced Motocross for ten years, through my teens, and into my 20s. Racing cars was always my passion. It just took me 29 years to get here! Now that I am here I plan to make the most of it. I will give it 150% every time I roll out onto the track.|
| Racing Goals|
|Continue to race in the IMCA SportMod class to gain further experience on and off the track. Within the next three years race in an IMCA Modified. Within the next five years race in an Unlimited Touring Modified.|
| Other Interesting Team Information|
|My car number is my wedding anniversary, "4/8/00". We built a whole race car but could not figure out how to adjust a helmet so the tearoffs would not go flying off!|
