 Career Summary
My dad used to work at the Speed Bowl in Red Cloud, and I would always go with him. Then I started going with Larry Edger to the races. In 2006 we had some tickets to go to Junction Motor Speedway. This is when I saw the Hornet / Sport Compact class. I found a Mustang during the off season and raced it. From there on I have been racing and I had moved up to IMCA Hobby Stock in 2010, and now for the 2011 season I am racing IMCA SportMod.
