How did you get started in racing?
I got started into racing when i was six years old and dad bought me a go kart and we went to local Willowdell Speedway and started racing and it all took off from there.

What division do you race in and what tracks do you race at?
I race in the Main Event Racing Series around the paved short tracks in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsyvania. also racing ARCA at tracks like Toledo, Michigan, Chicagoland, Iowa, Daytona, And Talledega.

If you had to pick a NASCAR driver to compare your driving style to who would it be and why?
I would compare myself to a Denny Hamlin type because I race hard and when you piss me off i race even harder.

So you race late models on different short tracks in northeast. Now you have tested a ARCA car at Daytona Speedway in jan. 2011. Tell everybody how that felt the first time out there on a superspeedway.
My first laps at Daytona wasnt really what i expected. it feels a lot slower than i thought that it would. 182 mph feels like a sunday drive on the highway untill you hit the high banks of the corner then you realize the speed you are going.


How did you get this chance to drive the ARCA car?

I first got the chance to test a ARCA car at shady bowl in our family owned ARCA car and now i got the chance to test and now have the chance to race at Daytona in our family owned machine.

When you are not racing what do you do for fun?
when im not racing im very involved in the FFA and anything that pertains to that.

Is there any race that sticks in your mind from 2010, and why?
the race that sticks in my mind from 2010 was the race at kil kare when were top of the charts in practice and had a good qualifing run, but in the race while passing for the lead, myself and another car got tangled up and i was put into the front strech wall and couldnt continue. i knew that if i was in second, our car was fast enough to catch the leader.

Is there anybody you would like to thank?
I would like to thank all of my sponsors, Aluma Aluminum Trailers, Elmer schaeffer amzoil dealer, impact race products, mid america properties, and dc racing used rac car parts. also Matt Looft for all of his help at daytona .
