coming back to 311 Speedway to win a race in my rookie year, after destroying a car there the month before.
What is the worst thing that has happened to you in racing, or your worst season?
Crashing at 311 Speedway & landed in the hospital.
In your own words, describe your 2004 season:
We were pleased with our performence on the track, but our season ended early because of three engine failures, used up our budget.
What are your plans for the 2005 season?
Run weekly at Port Royal Speedway, not for points, going for my first 410 win, we were close a couple of times last year, hopefully we stepped up our program enough this year. We have 3 new cars & 3 fresh motors. If the engines hold up this year,we are going to run Susquehanna Speesway on Thursday nights & the three Thunder on the Hill Shows at Grandview Speedway; Grandview is only four miles from our house & shop.
Where do you see Sprint Car racing five years from now?
410 Sprints slowly dwindling, mainly because of the engine costs, and there are too many different sprint car classes starting up which will only hurt in the long run.
What is your ultimate goal?
Win several 410 races, then in three years run the Masters Classic at Knoxville, after that I'm going to semi retire, so I can spend more time with the grandchilden.
Anything else you would like to add?
Thank You for your time & Sponsors are always welcome.
