I started racing in 2007 at Tricity Speedway in Granite City,IL. Starting out in hornet cars, I finished in 6th place just 5 points out of 5th in my rookie season. The  same year I raced some of the best hornet racers in the midwest on a regular basis.I bought my first open wheel 600cc micro sprint in 2008.My first time out in the car I started in 20th and finished the night in 12th at St. Francis Speedway, MO. The year was full of ups and downs. Due to funds i couldnt race the whole season. In 2009, I only  raced a hand full of times.  My first son was born and my focus was on  the family. In 2010, I ventured out and traded my micro sprint for an UMP dirt modified which I did not do so well in. I then decided to trade my modified for a micro sprint for the 2011 season. In 2011, I plan on running some big races in the area. These races are; the lucas oil on the edge on speed channel, The 66 Mike Phillips memorial, a $10,000 to win race that should bring 125+ of best drivers in the industry, and some POWRI shows which brings an average of 60 cars a night.
