 Awards & Accomplishments
3rd in 2000 NASCART Go-Kart series, 8th in 2001 Butler County Speedway Limited Late Model Points, 11th in 2003 Points. My average heat race finish in 2004 was 2nd to 3rd place, with 3 heat wins. 1 Top 5 and 3 Top 10 A Feature finishes. Due to my limited racing schedule, I finished 16th at Mid-Nebraska Speedway in 2004. In 2005 I finished 7th in Points at U.S. 30 Speedway.
 
 Career Summary
In 2000 I ran a Go-Kart and in 2001 I jumped into a Late Model. It has always been a dream of mine to drive a Late Model. It's now been two years since I've raced and I am ready to run again. It's all about the money for me right now, but I'm hoping with the new company, Midwest Iron Auction, they will give me a chance to compete again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 2010. I hope I can run two races, one at Mid-Nebraska, and the other at Junction motor Speedway. Cross your fingers!
 
 Racing Goals
To race clean, respect the other drivers, and enjoy myself while I'm on the track. Also try to gain the confidence of every driver that I race against. Our new transition with the new Rocket Chassis has gained me more confidence in my racing career. I do want to give thanks to my engine builder, Allen Garretson. Loved the motor in 2004.
