RACING HISTORY & ACCOMPLISHMENTS: With the 2016 racing season being my 3rd year racing anything, I don’t have many big accomplishments yet. One of my favorite moments were when I finally held my first checkered flag last season at Federated Auto Parts Raceway after winning a b-main. Another moment that comes to mind is qualifying first in my group at one of the Outlaw Sprintcar races in my Modified group my first year racing.

RACING IDOL: I’m torn between Jim Black, Rusty Griffaw . Jim always puts in massive effort and is really meticulous with the condition of his equipment and Rusty could probably win a race on a golf cart… that dude can wheel anything.
