Tell us a little bit about yourself.  I’m a West Virginia coal miner where I grew up in a small town riding quads all my life. If I’m not racing on the weekends I’ve got the 4-wheel drive out riding in the mountains. These days I live in Beckley, WV with two puppies named Si and Sadie. I also like to box in my free time.

What is your favorite part of riding a quad? I like the fact that when you are riding, it’s you against the course.

How did you get started in the sport? I attended a race with Rusty Repass where I also met Dan and Cliff.  I was immediately hooked.

What are your long term racing goals? I’d like to one day win a class championship.

What is your biggest ambition? I want to help the team succeed anyway I can. Personally, I would like to race the Heartland Challenge and the Baja 1000.

How did you get involved with the team? Rusty, Dan, Cliff, Josh, and I all pitted together during the 2012 season.  That’s when the idea of forming a team came up, and here we are!
