 Awards & Accomplishments
We raced in the Pro Am class at Shelby County Speedway and had numerous wins over a couple of years. We placed in the Top 10 in Points. My wife won the 1999 Powder Puff. In 2000 we moved up to Grand Nationals and had a Feature win at Shelby County Speedway and we won the Best Looking Car and Crew Award at Shelby County Speedway. We've won races at SCS and CCS. We are looking forward to racing at SCS and the Deery Brothers Series.
 
 Career Summary
My parents lived down the road from Shelby County Speedway, and when I was a child, my dad took me to the races. I remember as if it was yesterday that I asked my dad if I could be a race car driver, and he told me that I will be able to do whatever I put my mind to. To Dad I say thanks! I had no idea what a motor consisted of prior to purchasing our first race car. I knew what a spark plug and air cleaner was, but beyond that I knew nothing. I looked to racing as a challenge. We haven't looked back since.
 
 Racing Goals
We want to be consistant. It is our goal to be considered a threat to win in each race we participate in. We may run for Points, or continue traveling to different tracks requiring us to be able to adapt to different track configurations and dirt surfaces.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The car number 17 was chosen because it was always my number in sports through college. We added the M to represent our family and show it is a team effort. I am actively involved with the Shelby County Racers Association, which is currently promoting the Shelby County Speedway, acting as a manager. We have put a lot of hours in and look to improve the entire atmosphere and make the races a family affair. We are now on our second year, following a very successful first year, and I am very proud to be a part of the managers. I want to let everyone know that I have the utmost respect and admiration for the four managers and families that have kept racing going at the Shelby County Speedway.
