"I started going to the races when I was around 7 years old. As I got older I really got interested in racing. When I was about 13 years old I had pretty much made up my mind that I wanted to race. I kept telling Dad and Mom that I would really like a race car. On my 15th birthday my uncle who raced in the rookie division let me take his rookie car out, what an awesome birthday present! After that I was hooked on racing. I guess you could probably say that racing is in my blood because both of my grandfathers used to race. After I had raced my uncles car, I kept going on to the classifieds trying to get Dad and Mom to buy me one of my own, finally I got them to break down and get me one. Basically ever since then all I do is live and breathe racing, it is the only thing on my mind. If it wasn't for my Dad I wouldn't be able to do this, he spends all winter working on the car with me so I can race. Also I have to say Thank You to Danny Watson because he helps me out alot too."
