My cousin, Gary Hagey, did his best to drive a Late Model. I spent lots of weekends in the pits with that crew, so when I moved back to Iowa from Arizona, I started building my own car.

First Feature win this year. Someday race Modifieds or Late Models.
 Other Interesting Team Information
My car number is the year I graduated from Texas A&M, hence the maroon and white colors on the car too! :)
