What is your favorite racing memories?: My favorite memories from racing….. hmmm i can’t seem to remeber much after me and Shawn’s wreck.  Jk!!! Ummm I would have to say the first time I EVER got blacked flagged for going under my qualifying time. Honestly I don’t think I’ve been that excited to see that flag.
Who are the 3 toughest drivers you have competed against?: Hmmm three toughest drivers? I would say Shawn #34, Ken #12 and maybe a new driver that nobody knows, anyway you put it all the drivers are tough because you have to be able to pass them to win.
Biggest accomplishments outside of racing?: Outside of racing it’s all softball.  Biggest accomplishment would be going to districts and being the #1 fastest pitcher there out of all the teams.
