How did you start racing?
Growing up my dad worked with Ryan Tedesco and his racing team. I was
always around racing and always in the garage with them. So when I was
old enouph to race compacts (14 years old) I figured I would try it out
and now that's all I ever want to do.
What do you like about racing?
The most enjoyable thing about racing to me is being there with friends
and family. Also having a good race without tearing equipment up
What division and tracks do you race at?
I race compacts. I race at Midvale Speedway. I've been to
Barberton Speedway a few times and I go to Lorain County Speedway once
a year for their Halloween Festival of Speed at the end of each year.
What would you tell someone new to
I would say that its not all about winning the race on the first lap
just go out their and pick your moves wisely and proficient
What do you do when your not racing?
When I'm not racing Im usually fishing or working on the race car
getting it prepared for the next week
Is there anybody you like to thank?
I'd like to thank my Dad for always being there and helping me work on
my car.Also my family for always coming and supporting me at all my
races. My sponsors- my museum tatto shop, Schwartz trucking and cjs
