If you weren't racing what would you be doing? - Working in somone elses shop.

How long have you been interested in racing, and how did you get started racing yourself?

My parents started taking me at 3 weeks old. My Dad used to work on Modifieds. I started in Rookie Karts at 6.

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

My Parents. They have always been involved in racing.

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

I hope they can get the cost under control. Western Pa. pays the least and the parts cost the same everywhere.

Do you plan on staying in Sprint Cars, or do you have plans of moving to another division?

I love open wheel racing, but I wouldn't turn down any good ride. My goal is to drive for someone, and not always worry about what everything costs.
