How did you get your start racing? At the age of 4, my Grandpa Jerry, my dad and I went out to the Oakland County Sportsman Club in Waterford, MI to look at a road racer for my dad. A quarter midget track is setup right in front of the road course, so we stopped in to take a look. My dad asked me if I would like to race these midget cars (what 4 year old would not), and the rest is history.
What drew you into Outlaw Super Late Model racing? Looking up to the drivers/teams that raced them as I traveled with the Michigan Legends series really drove me to one day race an Outlaw Late Model myself. Plus the sounds and smells!
