 Career Summary
I became interested in racing by watching my father race. Got my first Go-Kart at the age of five. Started racing Motorcross bikes when I was 13 and raced for five years. Moved back to Iowa and purchased my first Stock Car at the age of 19. Raced a Pro Am for five years, and now have raced an IMCA Modified for the past six years.
 
 Racing Goals
To win my first Feature soon. It's been a long road. To run in the Top 5 and be competitive at the surrounding tracks.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
Racing is first, but hunting and fishing are things I also enjoy doing when I'm not racing. I chose my number because it was my father's number when he raced. My father is my #1 supporter and mechanic. He keeps me focused when things aren't going well. There are a lot of people who help us at the track. One of them is my cousin Amber, who helps in the pit and is also a sponsor for the car.
