 Racing Goals
To continue racing and having fun, all the while spending time with my family. Being competitive and running towards the front is the greatest natural high there is!!
 Other Interesting Team Information
Racing is a family thing for me. My wife, both daughters and their husbands, and my grandsons are involved.

The selection of my car number was a bit weird. When I signed up for my number at Sunset in 1994, I ended up with 74. Much later that year, we remembered that 74 had been my number when I raced ATV's during 1972-1976.

I've had my race car featured in two local papers - In 2008 in Omaha City Weekly, on the front page, and in 1998 in All About Motorsports from Council Bluffs.

I built both of my Pro Am cars. Both were raced during the 2007 racing season at I-80 Speedway and were top running cars.
