When and how did you get started in racing?

I went to a flea market one Saturday morning and got a good deal on a late model roller... six years later at the last race in 03 i decided I wanted to run a 410 sprint.. so I put a for sale sign on the car and sold it 15 mins later... then proceeded to buy one of Fred Rahmer's (my neighbor) turn key cars off of Joe Harz along with plenty of spares to keep me on the track.

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

To tell the truth Kenny Jacobs cause one night I sat at home and watched the Knoxville Nationals and saw Kenny, one hell of a driver start on the front row.. and I said to myself if I race with him every week we can do just as well.. and a couple weeks later I won my first 410 feature in my rookie season
