When and how did you get started in racing? Started racing go-karts at age 3 at my dads public go-kart track. After watching my dad race growing up there was no way I wasn’t going to race.
Who had the biggest impact on your racing career? Definitely my dad, he has always been there to answer my questions, “loan” me some parts, and try his best to get me out on the track.
What is your favorite aspect of racing? The competition, I always want to be first no matter what I’m doing but when you have 19 other drivers out there who think the same way it just creates the biggest adrenaline rush you could ever experience.
What is your greatest accomplishment/ best memory? As of now when I lined up for the first time next my dad at Fremont Speedway in 2007.
In your own words describe your 2009 season? The 2009 season was a struggle. I lost some of my primary sponsors in the winter and my dad had started his own racing team. Needless to say the money wasn’t there. So by about July I had pieced back together my own race team. Just getting back onto the track was a accomplishment in its own.
What are your plans for the 2010 season? I am really excited for 2010. In the past I have really struggled with organization and with help. This upcoming year we have some new members which makes organization so much easier because I don’t have to do everything myself. Additionally these crew members have experience working on, as well as setting up, sprint cars. I think we could possibly be a weekly threat this year.
Where do you see Sprint Car racing five years from now? I think with the economy going bad I think Sprint Car racing will struggle. That’s why I think its up to us the people (drivers, sponsors, car owners, and most importantly the fans) to preserve the greatest show on dirt.
What is your ultimate goal? My ultimate goal is racing full time with the world of Outlaws, but I would completely happy just racing locally every week with a dominant team like for example byron reed, brock mayes, and john ivy.
