When and how did you get started in racing?

I started racing quads when I was 5 years old and my Dad thought it was too dangerous. So we moved to gocarts and went from there.

Who had the biggest impact on your racing career and why?

My Dad. He has been there to help and run our team the whole time

What would you be doing if you weren't racing?

I would be hunting as much as I possibly could

What is your greatest accomplishment/best memory?

I won a microsprint show at Mercer. I also won a gocart race in Tennesee

What is the worst thing that has happened to you in racing, or your worst season?

2005 in microsprints towards the end of the year, we blew a motor up almost every weekend

In your own words, describe your 2006 season:

For the first time in a 410, I thought it went pretty well. I learned a lot.

What are your plans for the 2007 season?

Lernerville Speedway Fridays, and Sharon or Mercer on Saturdays

Where do you see Sprint Car racing five years from now?

Hopefully the same as it is now, but with a lot of younger drivers

What is your ultimate goal?

To race a full schedule with the World of Outlaws

Anything else you would like to add?

I want to thank my dad, Ty Giesler, Jamie Smith, and everyone else who helped us out this season
