 Career Summary
I've always believed in the idea that as long as you're having fun, speed is all relative. This is the reason that I've run in so many different classes. I've been in everything from 4 Cylinders to IMCA Modifieds and Late Models, and just about everything in between. I run what I can afford, and I always try to have fun! I started off in basic Bomber type cars, and had the idea of moving up until I got to Late Models, but money proved to be the limiting factor. So I just decided to not worry about what others thought, and started moving back down. Now I'm running an MCSA Stock Car.
 
 Racing Goals
Have fun! That's really what it's all about.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The number 67 was inherited from my dad, who put in a lot of laps at the old Midwest Speedway in Lincoln, NE. I always remember him being a hard, but clean driver, who used his head and made the most with what he had. His equipment was good, but he was kind of under-budgeted compared to most of the guys he raced against. I also continued the traditon of running Mopars like he always did, just because it makes people wonder what you're up to when you can beat them with an off-brand! As far as rituals before a race, I'm not really superstitious, but I always get in the car the same way, and I always put on my gloves left hand first. Not really sure why!
