I started racing in 1977 at Texas Raceway in Kennedale where I grew up and graduated high school. My first car was a 1968 Charger RT. My first racecar was a 1973 340 Duster. It was my uncle's car that I pumped the lifters up on during a noise making contest with my older brother Jimmy. My dad decided that while I had to pay for my part of the damage it would also make a decent street/race car with some minor modifications and my uncle agreed. We raced for 2 years in Pro and finished 7th in 1978.

I decided to go faster and purchased a Martin/Miller 250 HP Nitrous Oxide setup. The first time we got everything hooked up it pulled the front wheels about a foot in the air and ran 1.1 seconds faster than I had ever gone. I was instantly hooked on racing with no boundaries. My younger brother Benny and I moto-crossed for a while and after a 15 year absence from drag racing we purchased a 1970 duster and a 440 Wedge motor and started playing with it.


In 1999 I bought a 220" R.E.D. from 1970 Top Fuel Champion and neighbor Ronnie Martin. He helped teach me to run a big-block injected Chevy. We ran with the Mid-America 7.90 Association in 2001 finishing in the top 10. I still had the need for unlimited heads up racing that I could afford and decided the outlaw fuel altereds were for me. With help from my family and knowledge of running fuel from Ronnie Martin we purchased our 125" 23T and installed my 427 CI Chevy and started testing.
