You are relatively new to short course racing (although you appear to be a pretty fast learner). Tell us about your racing background and how you came to race at the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I have no background in racing. My only background is just having a blast with my family and doing sports or anything fun together. We have never had time to stick to one sport/thing because my parents always had my brother and I doing something fun constantly, along the lines of camping, dirtbike riding, snowboarding etc. Growing up I wouldn’t stop doing something until I had mastered it. That involved a lot of focus and determination but I wouldn’t stop until I was satisfied. Anything mechanical I’m a fast learner at. I just won’t stop doing something until I figure it out.

How did you start racing? I always wanted to be a race truck driver since I was a little boy. Growing up I always had a passion for cars and trucks, that's all I grew up around. As a kid, I loved going to the Off Road Expo which to me was my version of Disneyland. One day when I was sixteen, my father and I found a truck on the Internet in Arizona that was almost Regional Series ready. We then bought the truck, looked into the Lucas Oil Regional Series and started building/completing the truck for its first race! That was honestly the coolest thing I have ever done in life! None of this could not have been possible without the help of God, my family (especially my dad) and all of the other mini stock drivers.

You are the 2015 Junior 2 Kart Champion. Tell us about your 2015 season, the ups and downs and the road that got you to the top this past season? I’m so stocked that I was able to bring home the California Championship to Arizona! My season was awesome, we put in a lot of work this year and it all paid off. This season was good, we didn’t have any issues with the kart! There was one point I thought my goal of winning it all was in jeopardy though, when I rolled my RZR 1000 in the Arizona Regional and broke my collar bone! There was nothing that was going to keep me out of racing, I guarantee that! I really had a solid kart all year and that makes my job a lot easier because all I have to do is concentrate on driving!
