 Career Summary
I started because my brothers raced. I started out sharing a car with my brother before going on my own. I'm known as one of most competitive drivers with a 4-door body style, running against 2-doors. Right now I'm working on moving up to a Grand National.
 
 Racing Goals
I want to have fun, stay competitive, and keep good sponsors so I can continue building year after year.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
The best ritual is that I always get a good luck kiss from Christy, and she tells me "Drive fast, turn left!" My car number came from the Kenny Rogers movie "Six Pack". Our team is known for having too much fun when camping overnight in the pits with our swimming pool that is either filled by the track water truck or the local firemen. We also have fun taking the car through parades to show off our sponsors.
