| Career Summary|
|Prior to 1997 we were lucky to race two to three nights a year, most of which turned out to be disastrous. We either crashed or blew a motor. Had a really hard time getting started. Started racing full time in 1998 and instantly had success. Finished 5th in points at I-80 Speedway, winning rookie of the year. We haven't looked back since. It's all been a humbling experience. We built a new car in 2000-01 which we continued to run throughout the 2002 season. For 2003 we purchased a new car on 1/9/03, a 2002 Barry Wright!|
| Racing Goals|
|For 2006 we are going to try our hand at some SLM touring races and end our LLM schedule. I'm also still chasing that Best Appearing Car Award for the sponsors!|
