 Awards & Accomplishments
Many wins in 33 years of drag racing and Mini-Sprint racing. My biggest accomplishment was getting my son Jay into racing. He has had many wins.
 Career Summary
I started in drag racing with my stock 1974 Plymouth Roadrunner. I also raced a 1970 'Cuda which I still own. My Mini-Sprint career began in 1980 with a home-made frame I built myself. In 1991 I got out of the driver's seat and turned it over to my son. My son was injured in 1997 as a car fell on him as he was working on it, ending his racing career. 1998 saw me make the jump back into driving! I have raced in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska (Lexington, North Platte, Waverly, Hastings, David City, Litchfield, Eagle, Broken Bow, and Fairbury).
 Racing Goals
My racing goals as of today are just to race, have fun, try to help others race, be able to make more races, and be a fair driver.
 Other Interesting Team Information
I am a Mopar car owner with a 1970 AAR 'Cuda, 1974 Road Runner, 1985 Shelby Charger, 1999 1500 Ram with a lot of racing parts in it, 2007 3500 Ram to pull my trailer, and 2003 PT Cruiser GT with goodies. I chose my car number 88 because, no matter if it is upside down or right side up, it is the same. I have a lot of stores to tell in the 33 years that I have raced, but there is not enough space!
