I’ve been building, crewing for, and driving racecars with my Dad since I was 3. My Dad passed away in 1994 and I got away from racing. After a few years I decided to pursue my passion again.
In 2001, I graduated from the Executive Racing School @ USA International Speedway, Lakeland, FL, with Instructors, David Reutimann & Lee Faulk. Setting fast time at every level and was invited back for the Student Race, where I set fast time again, and won the race.
In 2002, I quit my job and moved from Oregon to North Carolina without the promise of employment to chase my dream. After a year and a half in NC, I couldn’t secure the finances needed to continue my pursuit; however I did gain some great experience in the process, testing various types of cars at tracks on the East Coast. I was also hired as a Volunteer Driving Instructor at the Thunder Motorsports Baby Grand Stock Car Experience in Ripley, WV.
Now in 2017, I am at a position in life to pursue that dream again but on a more affordable scale. I am clean-cut, articulate, and will make a great ambassador for Champion Products.
