What is your favorite racing memories?: I guess I want to make some new memories in 2010. The hour glass is running low on my driving career.  Another championship is my goal for 2011 and share it with friends.
Who are the 3 toughest drivers you have competed against?: There is really too many after 20 years to pick just 3. I have enjoyed racing with the best in the area and they all are tough.
Biggest accomplishments outside of racing?: Bowling 15 perpect games(300) and also 7 800 series and averaging 220 a game not bad for a OLD GUY.
What is your biggest racing accomplishments?: 3 Track Championships
What was your biggest win?: I will never forget the first time back at M-40 after my near fatal crash. The fans all stood up when we went by the flagstand.  My heart was beating so fast i thought i was going to need oxygen. I went on to win that race (wow) and the crowd went crazy. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR THAT MEMORY.
Comments: I’m really looking forward to the 2011 season. We have a new color for 2011.  Not many seasons left in my driving career.  I hope everyone gets out to the race track in 2011.  Stop by after the races and say hi, I love to talk to all of you. The kids are always welcome. We love to let them sit in the car and really get up close.
