How did you get started in racing?
I have always wanted to race since I was 4. After talking with Wayne
Beckner Sr. as to how easy it was to get started I then decided it was
time to start racing.
What division do you race in and what
tracks do you race at?
I race in the Sport Stock Division at Springport Motor Speedway.
Tell us about your car you raced this
I raced a 1995 Dodge Neon for the second year now. I am finally
starting to get used to the car and make the right adjustments to
become more competitive.
Favorites Movie: Stroker Ace
Tv Show: Friday Night
NASCAR Driver: Dale Jr
Who are some your favorite drivers to
Brian Boesel by far is my favorire driver to race against. We have had
some amazing door to door battles with just inches between us and never
touched each other. We have amazing respect for each other both on and
off the track. He is by far a great competitor and most of all friend
If you could pick any track in the
world to race, which one would it be and why?
I would love to race at Bristol Motor Speedway just once to say I did
Tell us a little about your car
I started out racing 3 years ago with just my dad helping me. We
have since then added a wonderful friend of mine that goes over and
beyond expectations every week making sure my car is ready to race.
Without the help of my crew and fellow racers I would not have
accomplished any of my goals in racing.
Is there any race that sticks in your
mind from the past, and why?
My first feature win this past season at Spartan Speedway. After last
year blowing 4 motors and coming so close many times it was my main
goal for this past season to get my first ever win. That night was not
the easiest of the nights. In my heat race my right front hub busted
causing my wheel to come off. We managed to just get everything back
together as my feature race was rolling out onto the track. It was as
if I was supposed to win that race that night. I battled hard against
some great cars. Lucky for me I found myself in the right place at the
right time when it was needed. The emotions as I crossed that line and
seeing my kids faces as they anounced me winning was priceless. I
dedicated that race to my grandma whom I lost during the season. This
next year is for her!
Tell us something about you that would
surprise your fans:
I volunteer to coach a youth floor hockey team.
When you are not racing what do
you do for fun?
I love to bowl and hang out with my family
Do you watch or play any other sports?
Other than bowling I dont do play any other sports. I love watching all
sports that I get to watch.
What are your goals in racing?
My goals are to win a championship and to beat Aaron Taylor!!
Is there anybody you would like to
I would like to thank my wife Alley for putting up with my racing. Also
would like to thank all of my sponsors. Without them my racing wouldnt
happen. Also would like to thank my family, friends, and supporters.
Jeff and Pam Parish and all of the crew at Springport Motor Speedway by
far are the best of the best when it comes to promoters, supporters,
and track owners. I recommend anyone who races to come out and
experience Springport Motor Speedway!!
