 Awards & Accomplishments
Some of our awards didn't come until this year when we bought a Big Daddy Race Car. We won 4 times this year, once at Boone County Raceway and 3 times at Riviera Raceway. We placed 3rd in the Depot Car Show in Norfolk. In 2008 we won 4 times, twice at Butler County, and twice at Riviera Raceway, and we also had many Top 5's.
 
 Career Summary
I started racing in 2004 in the Cruiser class at Riviera Raceway with my friend Ryan. We ran for a couple years, then we switched to the Hobby Stock class at Riviera Raceway. Now we compete at Boone County Raceway, U.S. 30 Speedway, Butler County Motorplex and Riviera Raceway. We bought a Big Daddy Race Car the second year into the Hobby Stock class and it has been very successful. We won four times each year in 2007 and 2008.
 
 Racing Goals
My goals are to race clean, not tear things up, and to finish in the Top 5 every night.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The reason we chose this number is because we saw the movie, Talladega Nights, and this number was Ricky Bobby's number. We loved that movie so that's how we got our number. "I wanna go fast!"
