Tell us a little bit about yourself.  Well, I am 20 years old and currently reside in Lisbon, OH. I have been riding on four wheels my entire life and have been around racing ever since I was born.  I grew up racing different local series and even ran a few nationals.  2015 marks the beginning of my second full season with the GNCC series and after taking home a championship in the 2014 19+C class, I’ll be moving up to College B for this season.

What is your favorite part of riding a quad?  I love the adrenaline rush you feel when competing against other racers.

How did you get started in the sport?  I started riding when I was 3 years old and my family was associated with a club that held a racing series.  Once I turned 5 and was able to race my parents got me a Suzuki LT80 and rest is history.  

What are your long term racing goals?  I want to keep pushing to win a championship in the College B class, from there move up to the College A class, and then hopefully into the Pro Am class.

What is your biggest ambition?  My biggest ambition is to continue meeting and making great friends in the racing world and to help promote our team.  

How did you get involved with the team?  I met the team during my 2014 race season and throughout the year we all became friends.  They welcomed on to the team in 2015.
