When and how did you get started in racing?Growing up watching my dad I always wanted to race and be as good as he was and as soon as I turned 14 he let me build a car with a 305 for a couple races.
Who had the biggest impact on your racing career and why? My Dad and Brother. Growing working on their cars really helped learn the ropes of a sprint car.
What would you be doing if you weren’t racing? I honestly don’t know. Lets not think about that.
What is your favorite aspect of racing? Racing in general.. It doesn’t matter what you’re racing, it’s a rush and it’s what I live for.
What is your greatest accomplishment/best memory? Beating the World of Outlaws twice at Lincoln Speedway in back to back years.
Where do you see Sprint Car racing 5 years from now? Hopefully as strong as it is now! But I for see it being like it was back in the 90’s where there will be 2 or 3 cars dominating an area.
