| Career Summary|
|My rookie year was in 2000. I had a very bad year as I had motor trouble all season and could not get any consistent runs. I ran for two weeks and then sat out for two weeks before I could get back on the track. I finally sold everything and now I have the opportunity to do it again but better this time.|
| Racing Goals|
|Be a clean driver, be consistent, and just finish races without tearing anything up. I would really like to get into the Top 15 in points.|
| Other Interesting Team Information|
|I went to Northwest Missouri State and majored in Football. Once I realized I was not going to the NFL I transferred to Iowa State. I always wear my Little E shirt for luck. I picked my car number because it was my number in Football (kind of corny!). I can look back on my rookie year and laugh now, but I rolled my car off of turn two on the last lap of my first Feature. What a rookie mistake!|
