 Tracks & Series
Junction Motor Speedway (NE) - Sport Compact #20

 Awards & Accomplishments
In 2005 I won a Feature at JMS once. I got 4th place for the season in 2005. In 2006 I received 10th place at Mid-Nebraska Speedway. In 2007 I got 5th place overall in the Happy Hornet division, and I have won 1 race. I raced at Junction Motor Speedway for three years before coming to Mid-Nebraska Speedway, where I got as high as 2nd, but the Happy Hornet classs was just starting up, so there weren't very many cars. 2008 was my third year at Mid-Nebraska Speedway and I got 4th place for the season. This year I'm going back to JMS to do most of my racing.
 Career Summary
I was in Figure-8 racing for six years and I have been doing circle track for five years. Before that I went to watch all kinds of races - cars, trucks, 4x4's, Monster Trucks, and tractor pulls. My brother got me involved in racing at a early age. My dad raced at JMS just for one year. So I have been around racing for awhile. My Grandpa Carlson always said in life to enjoy what you are doing and have fun doing whatever.
 Racing Goals
Just to have fun and win some races. Hopefully some day get a Track Championship. But it isn't just about winning, it is the enjoyment of going out and having fun with friends. Yeah, winning is very good, but it isn't everything.
 Other Interesting Team Information
Tony Stewart's number is 20 so my number is 20. We always try to name my car. In 2007 it was called 1/2 of a Hemi. This year we haven't named it yet. After each heat or Feature race I go to all the Happy Hornet drivers and congratulate them how they did, no matter where I finished. I really don't have any rituals, I just like to race. I have a lot of support from extended family, my friends at work, and the fans that come out to see us race. And yeah, in racing everyone has an opinion on anybody. They also like to talk smack, but that don't bother me. I just like to go out, have fun, and meet different people.
