| Career Summary|
|I have been around racing all my life. My dad raced in the 70's until he was killed in an accident at the Adams County Speedway. Then my step-dad, Bob Seaton, raced in the 80's. It seemed natural to be around racing. I started helping Tim Cooney whe he was running Modifieds, then Jackson Racing when Mark Hansen was driving. To make a long story short, I got a chance to drive my brother's car at ACS and did pretty good, so he let me keep driving. We have worked our way up the ranks and will continue doing what we love, having fun and racing!!!|
| Racing Goals|
|Have the most fun I can have racing. Keep one step ahead of the competition and two steps ahead of the tech inspector!! :-)|
| Other Interesting Team Information|
|The reason I'm #3 is that it was my dad's number.|
Fun stuff - Tow truck racing on the way home, sitting on generators, teaching Trenton new words for his mom to explain, keeping the good folks at Budweiser working overtime, and turning off the lights at SCS because the sun came up!
