 Career Summary
My family has been in racing since I was eight years old, with my brothers racing before me. I started racing Enduros, and then started in an ill-handling home-made Modified in 91. Believe me, I did a lot of spin outs! So during the winter of 92 I decided to build my own car. We called her the "Ol' Iron Maiden." She was heavy, but I won more features with that car than I have to date with my other Mods. My wife and son love racing and we do this as a family sport. I hope some day my son will race and carry on the family tradition.
 Racing Goals
Just to run good every time I pull on the track.
 Other Interesting Team Information
I get low on blood sugar since I am diabetic. I usually eat a candy bar before the A Feature since my adrenalin gets to pumping. I usually go low if I don't. One time I was sitting in the line-up getting ready to go out on the track, and I told George I forgot to eat my candy bar, so he charged in front of everyone in line and got the candy bar, not even paying for it. He ran it to me just as we were pulling out. I ate it, but I had already went too low and was seeing double. For the first 10 laps I was racing with 40 cars and didn't know which one to pass. I just layed back until the double vision went away. My wife asked me why I waited so long to start racing. I told her the rest of the story later!
