 Career Summary
As a young boy I went to the races at Midwest Speedway and knew someday I wanted to race. I started driving in the Sportsman class at Midwest Speedway and was also on my wife's pit crew when she raced a 360 Sprint Car. My father-in-law, Frank "Zook" Scdoris, and I bought my first Sprint Car from Don Droud, Sr. in 1983 and I started racing weekly at Midwest Speedway & then on to Eagle Raceway.
 
 Racing Goals
In November of 2002 I had my second open heart surgery. I was re-admitted with blood clots in the left lung. I am currently still taking coumidian and am not able to return to racing yet. The plans, we hope here, in a few more months, is to take me off of this medication and see if I can remain blood clot free. If I can, then I will be back racing sometime this season. Until then I am looking forward to getting and staying healthy. In the meantime I will help out my son, Nick, who will drive for me! Looking forward to coming back racing again soon.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
Being a low budget racing team, we strive to continue having a lot of fun and really love what we do!! The best part is meeting new friends and the little kids are the most important to my crew and myself. I enjoy giving someone an opportunity to drive my car, to have the experience to know what it feels like to crawl and strap into a 360 Sprint Car. It isn't as easy as it looks!! Those who have pitted next to us can really tell some fun stories! My crew loves to play and joke around a lot!! But we still know when to get serious! Also the color green is NOT ALLOWED in our pit. If we come in that night and the arm band has green, everyone turns their band inside out and come feature time we tear them off!!! We have our good nights, and when we make it to the Feature, that is when the reward pays off for us! They say reaching the destination isn't as important as the journey getting there, and it's been one exciting, fun trip!!!
