Racing History & Accomplishments: Raced go karts when I was young, and had many wins and raced against several famous drivers. Ive been a fan of racing all my life. I had a dream to race a dirt late model. I worked 3 years of night shifts, building Prairie State Energy Campus, putting in up to 3000 hours a year, followed that with two years six days a week on the Veterans/Musial bridge (ran tower crane on Illinois pier). Saved my money and with the help of a retired operator we went out and bought a late model. Now, I’m living my dream. There have been rough times, but il get there.
Racing Idol: Brian Birkhofer- he’s just one bad dude..
Kevin Harvick, his win after Dale Sr passed at Atlanta was amazing after taking the roll over for the great Dale Sr..
