How i got my start in racing: I got my start in automotive racing when
i was 7 years old, it was when my dad and his good friend Eric were
looking at buying a modified, when we went to look at the race car the
older gentlemen that had the car for sale had a quarter midget off to
the side with and looked as if it hadn't been used in years and to make
a long story short we ended up buying the quarter midget that following
winter we ran the winter nationals and won the championship in my first
season in a race car.
what car i race and tracks: My current race car is a legend car modeled
after a 34' ford coupe that is build by US legend cars international,
the current tracks as of now is several tracks all over the country but
not matter what track i race at or the history behind it i still love
the short 1/4 mile tracks, that you have to be a driver to win at.
years of racing and plan: I have been racing for 8 years this year and
my future plan in racing are to hopefully get seen by a late model team
and race those. Then continue my route to NASCAR. So anyone that want a
young driver with sponsorship potential and great skill please get a
hold of me.
2011 win at barberton: A little about the race Saturday April 9th is
that it was the longest 20 laps of my life, but the car was set up
perfect and was on a rail , when i got in the car that night my goal
was to do nothing but put my sponsors in the front.
You race at Barberton Speedway. Tell everybody about the track? I
personally love Barberton because of the skill it take to master that
track and at the end of the race it will be the person with the most
will up front but also my dream would be to have them pave the corners
to make it a mini Martinsville speedway.
any race that sticks your mind : one race that sticks in my mind was
the 5 race of the year when i won my first heat race ever in a legend
car my first year .
When you are not racing what do you do for fun: when i am not racing i
weight lift and work out to be in top shape for racing to out last
everyone at the closing laps also i hunt, fish , and ride four wheelers
with my brother or my best friend Ethan .
Who are some of your favorite sports stars? my favorites would be
Trevor Bayne, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Jimmy Johnson, and my favorite
ex -NFL player would be Ray Mcelroy because of his Inspiration he gave
me in personal greeting.
whats last movie you watched: it was a oldie but goodie Days of Thunder.
