 Tracks & Series

 Awards & Accomplishments
Won my second heat race as a Pro Am driver.
 
 Career Summary
I ran two years in the Cruiser class at Sunset Speedway and Greenwood Speedway, and competed twice in the Cruiser Car Nationals at Beatrice Speedway. I worked on the Indy Light pit crew in Los Angeles at the L.A. Street Race for Shawn Schmidt.
 
 Racing Goals
Finish this year with the most points for a rookie. Beat Bob Tanner in any race, because he says I can't (but I will!). He gave me the itch to drive a Pro Am. Above all, have fun, be competitive, learn, give the fans a good show, and WIN. Would love to drive an Indy car just to see what 200-plus miles per hour feels like.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The number came from the radio station 89.7 who sponsors our car. I also do a few minutes on the radio every Monday morning about the races. As far as rituals, we try to eat just as much chicken as we can, just to jinx Bob Tanner. I am continuing to work with Omaha Chiropractor, Shawn Schmidt, to try to make it to the Indy 500 in the upcoming years. It will be a hoot to jump the pit wall with the best.
