I started road racing many years ago, but had to give it up as I had started a family and priorities change. Years later as the kids grew, I started to rekindle that desire. I built my new car from scratch and made it a project that both my son and I could enjoy together. Over the last couple of years we have raced locally and have done well for a car that was built in a barn. There are many improvements that we need to make to the car and with the financial help of a sponsor, we can take this team to the next level.
I built this car to try and bring back the spirit of the sports racer and grassroots car building. Like Steve McQueen said in Le Mans, "Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting." This has been the story of my life, The adventures and thrills that this sport brings to both my son and I, are the best memories that a father could ever share with his son. One day I hope to turn this car over to him, so he can be even better then me.
