How did you get started in racing?
I've Been Around Racing All My Life And It Runs In The Family My Grandfather Raced, His Brothers Raced, Their Sons Raced, My Uncle Raced, So Its Just Always Been A Part Of My Life! In 2005 I Got My First Race Car And Ran A Limited Schedule That Year, The Next Year We Ran A Full Schedule And Won The Young Guns Track Championship At Harris Speedway And We Have Been Full Time Racing Ever Since And Plan On Many Many More Years Of Full Time Racing! 


Tell us little about your car and what tracks you race at?
I Race A 1987 Ford Mustang With A 2335cc 4 Cylinder Engine And Run On Hoosier Racing Tires! We Run Mostly Around Upstate South Carolina And North Carolina At Harris Speedway, TR Speedway, And Cherokee Speedway! We Plan On Running A Few Other Tracks Around Here In 2012 Such As Laurens County Speedway, Carolina Speedway, I-77 Speedway, And Westminster Speedway!


When you are not racing what do you do for fun?
If We Aren't Racing Then We Are At A Race Watching For Fun, We Like To Travel To Some Big Races Around Here And Watch Weather It Be To A Big Super Late Model Race Or To A NASCAR Race, If There's A Race Going On We Are Going To Be There! During The Off Season We Do Wind Up At The Local Fun Park Riding Go Carts A Lot!


Is there any race that sticks in your mind from the past, and why?
In 2006 We Made 1 Trip To Thunder Valley Speedway Near The End Of The Year, It Was A Last Minute Decision After Harris Had Been Rained Out And It Was The 1st Time I Had Ever Been On The Track Racing And We Showed Up Late And Got No Practice, Went Out For The Heat Race And Won It From The Rear, Started On The Pole In The Main Event And Lead The Whole Race Flag To Flag And Won! It Sticks Out To Me Because It Was The 1st And Only Time Ive Ever Raced There And We Won!


Is there anybody you would like to thank?
I Would Like To Thank God, Family, Friends, And Sponsors Because Without Any Of Those I Wouldn't Be Racing And Doing What I Love Doing!
 Johnson's Racing Engines, Round Boy Race Cars, Back Home Cafe, T-n-T Racing Parts, Jimmy's Garage, Presnells Automotive, Old Tymes Tires, and Kenny Collins Signs!
