 Career Summary
I got into racing while in high school on a pit crew for a friend of one my brothers, Joel. Had a car within a year, and my brother Dan drove it the last five nights of 91 because I was only 17 and Abe at U.S. 30 would not let anyone under 18 drive yet. Came back the next summer and Dan and I split the driving and led Points for half the season before finishing 2nd. I didn't get my first A Feature win until 97, but then followed it up with the Champoinship in 98. I moved down to Hobbies in 01 when U.S. 30 went all IMCA and won 9 Features, propelling me to an 18th place National finish and 3rd in IMCA Rookie Points. After U.S. 30 brought back the Street Stock class, I started running it again, but I also enjoy jumping in one of our several Hornets we own, or an occasional Hobby Stock. After my daughter Makayla was born in 03 I scaled back my racing, but as she gets older, I hope to get into it more again. For 09 Travis Kracl and I finally brought our combined effort, the 08 Hobby Stock. However after only three races the car met the concrete wall at Columbus and sat on life support awaiting its fate for some time. I finally rebuilt it and ran it and the Street Stock on and off for a few years. Started the Midwest Classic Stockcar Association in 2012. The Hobby Stock has been officially retired after the 2012 season.
 
 Racing Goals
To simply race hard and have fun!!! I would love to drive a Late Model once (I tried a Mod and didn't like it). I would love to tour the state and race at other tracks. Anyone want to sponser the gas??? Moving forward, I want to continue growing the MCSA Series!
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
My dad ran the number 00 in the late 50's. I have only missed five nights of racing at Columbus in 15 years. Travis and I combined our numbers of 00 and 88 to come with the 08 on our Hobby Stock.
