 Career Summary
I spent 16 seasons (1996-2011) as an announcer for tracks such as The Speed Bowl, Mid-Nebraska Speedway, Elmwood Park Speedway, and WaKeeney Speedway, with the bulk of my work at Hitchcock County Speedway, McCook Speedway, Lincoln County Raceway, and Dawson County Raceway.
 
 Racing Goals
My biggest goal is still to try to keep the car together, minimize breakdowns, and get it fixed when it does break down. I hope to make the A Feature when there is more than one Feature, to finish the race, and load it on the trailer.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
I chose #31 because the #31 Late Model was my favorite car from the 70's to mid 90's. Yes, it was my uncle's number, but it's more in honor of his cars. My car is not a Ford, but I think he knew before he passed away I am not that car savvy, there are lots of Chevy parts around, and most people around that could help me are more familiar with GM stuff. He chose #31 because Jessie Zogg was #30.
