How did you
get started in racing?
I got started in racing through my dad. When my dad was young he
raced gokarts and when I was born he moved into a legend car. I was at
the race track all the time when I was growing up. As soon as I was old
enough to see over the steering wheel I begged to get a car. It took
some time to convince my parents that I could do it but he soon gave
And whats the most
enjoyable thing about racing?
The most enjoyable thing about racing is doing something I love with my
family and some of the best friends I will ever have.
What division do
you race in and what tracks do you race at?
I race bandoleros in the Outlaws division. I race at tracks all
around the U.S such as, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Lanier National
Speedway, Gresham Motorsports Park, Watermelon Capital Speedway, Little
Rock Speedway (Rockingham Speedway), Concord Speedway, Charlotte Motor
Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and Auburndale Speedway.
If you could
switch rides with any driver in any type of racing which one would it
If I could switch rides with any driver in any type of racing I
switch rides with Danica Patrick because one day I too hope to have the
shot of racing as a female with all the boys of Nascar.
How many years
have you been racing? And what are your plans for the next few years?
I have been racing for five years. My plans for the next few
years in racing is to this year become the National Points Champion in
the Bandolero Outlaws division. Then I hope to move up into a legend
car and a late model from there. I am taking my racing career
step-by-step right now. There is no reason to rush, I will still be
learning and building up my skills in any car that I am in.
Is there any race
that sticks in your mind from the past, and why?
A race from the past that sticks in my mind is my first race at
Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Summer Shootout. This race sticks
in my mind because it was my first race at that track and the car count
of twenty-one cars was intimidating. I qualified fourteenth. Throughout
the race I took my time and really worked hard. After twenty laps I had
a podium finish in third place. This race was a real confidence booster
and I will never forget it.
When you are not
racing what do you do for fun?
When I am not racing I play many sports and exercise often to
shape for racing. Also I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
Is there anybody

Drew and Tina Johnson, Cody Haskins, and my sponser Blastpro Epoxy
