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 in.

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 be?
 If I could switch rides with any driver in any type of racing I would 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 stay in shape for racing. Also I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

Is there anybody you would like to thank?
 I would like to thank Jason and Amy Jorgensen, Gerald Fowler, Drew and Tina Johnson, Cody Haskins, and my sponser Blastpro Epoxy Floors.
