When and how did you get started in racing?

When I was 15 my dads girlfriend bought me a micro sprint from a guy they worked with. Haven't stopped since

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

Saving a lot of money? What fun would that be.

What is your favorite aspect of racing?

The people involved are all, for the most part, good people. .

What is your greatest accomplishment/best memory?

First feature win was pretty exciting

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

Hmm, leading a feature at Mercer and watching my right rear wheel pass me going through the turn. It broke and, well... I didn't win

In your own words, describe your 2011 season:

Successful on some levels, but not nearly consistent enough.

What are your plans for the 2012 season?

Ask me in November. Time will tell.

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

It will still be here provided the tracks don't keep trying to create more divisions to split up the racers into even smaller ones.

What is your ultimate goal?

I wanna win more races!
