 Career Summary
My first year was a crazy one. I started off basically bad for the first couple of months, wrecking or just not having the right setup, but then I started taking some of the other drivers' advice and experimented with some of their suggestions and finally found a pretty comfortable spot with my car. Then there was a big change. I was getting into every A Feature straight from the heats and was finishing good every week. The toughest part going through this season was not having any sponsors and being on a very slim budget. But I am happy of my first year and how it ended up. Thanks to the other great drivers we run hard against on the weekends. It's you that helped me be the driver I am now!
 
 Racing Goals
To be successful and move up to asphalt one day.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
Since I have started my racing career, I have had a lot of ups and downs. I have continued with basically one of the smallest budgets of most teams, but have managed to still finish strong constantly. I really appreciate the advice and competitiveness of all the other drivers to better me as a driver and car owner. I'm staying focused at Eagle Raceway only, where I began my racing career.
