My Story

I grew up in a small town just south of Dayton, Ohio called Miamisburg and got my start in Quarter Midgets when I was just 5 years old. There was no racing history in my family, but my dad was a huge race fan. He gave my mom the bug too by dragging her along to the races whenever possible, even the Indy 500 while she was 7 months pregnant with me! For us, racing began as a family thing for fun but after winning my first race, there was no turning back.

Although we were just a modest blue-collar family, my parents and younger sister made huge sacrifices so that we could spend our weekends at the race track for over 10 years. We did this quite successfully until our finances were exhausted. At that point, I decided I would continue to devote my life to my passion which meant putting relationship building and sponsorship hunting at the forefront. In doing this, I have continued to move up through the ranks and it has been through many trials and tribulations that I have become the person I am today, still pursuing my dream of racing and winning at the pinnacle of motorsport.
