After going to 85 Speedway as a spectator in 1997, I instantly got the bug to start racing. Within a few days, I bought a shelled-out street car, an early ’80s Chevy Caprice Classic, and immediately got to work building the car. I funded the entire building of the car myself and did the majority of the work. My dad and a friend helped me with a few things, when one person couldn’t do it. I completed the car and was ready to race the first race of the season at 85 Speedway in Ennis, TX on March 15, 2008. I raced in the Cruiser division as #80.

During the 2008 season, I built a second race car, a 1976 Monte Carlo. I took it out to the track a few times, but decided to stick with my first car and give my dad the second car.

The 2008 season was my rookie season. I managed to finish the season in 5th place and was one of only two rookies to finish in the top 10 in the 2008 season. I only missed two nights of racing during the regular season’s 27 race nights, which were the last two nights of the regular season.

I made every regular season race during the 2009 season and finished in 4th place overall in the Cruiser division. After loaning my car to my dad for the first five races of 2010, I got back out on the track. I finished the 2010 season in 5th place overall.

I also created racing DVDs throughout the 2010 season and published a driver biography book featuring 69 of the 198 drivers that raced at 85 Speedway during the 2010 regular season. More information about the DVDs can be found at and the driver biography book can be found on Amazon.
