 Career Summary
I enjoyed watching NASCAR on TV with my dad when I was younger. I knew nothing about dirt racing until I was 13, but from then on I knew what I wanted to do. I built my first race car when I was 16 and now I enjoy it even more than I did then!
 
 Racing Goals
I get a lot of enjoyment out of the fact that racing is a family sport.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
When I was younger my favorite two numbers were 7 and 5. The 7 was for my favorite race car driver, Alan Kulwicki. When Alan lost his life I became a Terry Labonte fan, and that's where the 5 comes from. For a while, my car number was 57 (from my football number).
