 Career Summary
All the Jorgensens were raised close to Sunset Speedway and started going as kids, as soon as it opened. Dad was the gate man and Mom used to bring all six kids to the races. A relative (Leonard Christofferson) raced and had the #97. I actually started driving in 1971, when a cousin (who was the original driver) didn't come out of the Inn after intermission...I jumped in the car, did really well, and have raced ever since. Over the past 29 years, I've raced at Sunset, I-80, Adams County, Shelby County, Colorado National, I-70, Black Hills, Webster City, West Liberty, Park Jefferson, Denison, and others.

 
 Racing Goals
At my age...the ability to race for a few more years!!
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
After 29 years of racing we have too many stories to list here. However, the only real "ritual" we have is to pray before the races.
