On The Track

North Branch, MI

I’m 15 years old and have been racing competitively since I was 7. I’ve raced go karts, Bandoleros, Legends and now late models. Throughout my career, I’ve been told how hard it is to make it in racing. Truthfully, I don’t think that statement even begins to touch on how challenging my racing career has been, but you won’t hear me complain.

I’m a first generation “grass roots” driver. I come from a family with generations of racing spectators, not drivers. My parents have a never give up attitude that they’ve instilled in me. I’ll never take the opportunities they’ve given me for granted. Over the years, I have seen how hard they work and the determination they have to make sure I can continue racing. We’ve been known to cut and sell firewood, sell whatever non-necessities we have, and in the past we’ve even slept in our racing trailer at out of town races, just so I could race.

Each situation we’ve faced has made me the driver and person I am today, attributing to my character and successful racing career. I’m proud of where I’m from, where I’ve been and excited to see what my racing future holds.
