On The Track

As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a racecar driver. My racing career started in 2007 racing Jr dragsters in Houston, Tx. After several years and some success I moved to big cars in 2012 and dealt with the learning curve of building my own car. In 2017 a big change was made. After multiple disappointments, I sold the car I got started in and started over. New car, clean slate, new dreams to chase and goals to reach.

I want to chase a dream most never think of. I want to race at every dragstrip humanly possible. From the backwoods 1/8 mile tracks to the national event cathedrals. I want to race them all. Maybe chase the record for most tracks raced.

I've always been a traveler and a racing history buff, and its been my life's goal to travel to as many tracks as possible to learn the history of them all, weather they be time capsules from the 50s and 60s, or brand new modern facilities, each one has a story.

With the help of Champion Spark Plugs, I'd like to tell the story of our sport. One Track At A Time.
