I have followed racing since I was seven years old when I first met Tom Svoboda. My father raced at a small track near where Nebraska Raceway Park is now back in the mid 80's. My uncles and my brother raced, so I guess I am following in a long line of men to the track. I guess it's in my blood!

 
 Racing Goals
1. To prove to common everyday folks that you do not have to be wealthy to race. Instead, with patience and perseverance, you can overcome.

2. I love to help guys get into racing by helping them find cars or parts. Just to see somebody start racing is awesome!

 
 Other Interesting Team Information
We don't have any racing rituals, but some of the best stories are:

In 1995 at Harlan, the pit crew were working on the car and the lights kept going out in the pits. Well I looked down and found the plug wire was coming off the generator so I climbed out reached down and tried to put the wires back on while the generator was running. Man, that hurt! But everybody got a laugh at that one!

In 2004 at BlackbirdBend Speedway I flew off the backstretch and thought my car was sinking in water. Brad Appleton came over and was laughing about that one!
