I’ve been involved in motorsports for almost 30 years helping and supporting others and over the past two years I was able to get behind the wheel and begin racing for myself. There’s nothing better than putting on the helmet and closing off the rest of the world. Pure concentration and great excitement.
One of the goals that I have is to get youth more involved with cars and racing. This past summer I helped get a few kids closer to racing and hope to expand my efforts in 2018 if chosen to be part of Team Champion. I believe that today’s youth need to experience the trades and realize that there are many ways to become a Champion in life.
In 2017 I had a few racing triumphs. Our ChampCar team placed 5th out of 12th in our first endurance race. Also, we finished 4th out of 63 cars in our first oval race which was a 150 lapper!
In 2018 I plan to run more sports car endurance race events and run a LO206 kart. To kick off the racing season I’ll be racing in the Winter Racing Series at Painesville Speedway.
