 Career Summary
In 1976 I began helping my dad as part of his pit crew. In 1986 I began my career when I was a junior in high school, racing a Bomber car at Mid-Continent Speedway. Three years later I joined the Navy. After a four-year enlistment, I returned to race Classic Modifieds. We won the Championship that year at Dawson County Speedway. In 1993 I began to race the Sportman class at Mid-Continent Speedway. I later won the Points Championship at Dawson County Speedway in this class. In 1997 I transitioned to the Late Model class. I continue to race in this class at several tracks. In 2004 I moved to open motor classes, racing in Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and Oklahoma.
 
 Racing Goals
My goal is to be competitive and eventually win A Features in open Super Late Model classes.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
I chose the #90 number because my #2 number was taken by another driver in the Late Model class. The #90 was a winning number that my dad had used when he raced. I have many racing stories to tell. Please visit me in the pits and I would be happy to share a few with you!
