About me: My love of racing began at a very early age, I began attending the drag races with an uncle and the stock car races with another at about the age of 3. There was no greater thrill than the sights and sounds, the speed and seeing the cars compete.

Through the D.A.R.E program in my middle school we created a Jr. drag racing team. A small group of students worked with our D.A.R.E officer, the school principal, and our parents to form the team. We went out and sought sponsorship, purchased the dragster and had it painted and lettered. We shared the car on Sunday mornings at Lebanon Valley Dragway, each taking a turn driving. I did this for about 2 years but unfortunately I eventually outgrew the car. I continued to attend the stock car races as a spectator and on occasion worked on one of the tow trucks. Eventually, I was able to run a couple of cannonballs at Lebanon Valley Speedway and I was hooked.

In 2002, with the help of some wonderful sponsors, I began racing a full Saturday card in the Rookie Pro Stock Division, by season's end I had accumulated 2 wins, an additional 9 top 5 finishes, 4 additional top 10 finishes and 4 additional finishes outside the top 10. I finished the season 2nd in points.

In 2003 I chose to move up to the Pro Stock Division to race against some of the regions top drivers, I finished the season 12th in points. In 2004 I finished the season 6th in points and in 2005 I finished the season 4th in points with 2 wins, 7 additional top 5 finishes, 6 additional top 10 finishes and 4 finishes outside the top 10.

In 2006 I finished the season 3rd in points with 3 wins, 4 additional top 5 finishes, 6 additional top 10 finishes and 5 additional finishes outside the top 10.

In 2007 I finished the season 2nd in points with 2 wins, 11 additional top 5 finishes, 5 additional top 10 finishes and 3 additional finishes outside the top 10, what an amazing season with stiff competition and great racing.

In 2008 the season started out good and by mid season I was running 3rd in points with 2 wins, 4 top 5 finishes and 2 additional top 10 finishes, from there the season went down hill quickly. By August 16th, due to extensive damage to the car over the previous couple weeks the team had decided to retire for the season and regroup for 2008 Super Dirt Week.

In 2009 I finished the season 2nd in points with 3 wins, 7 additional top 5 finishes, 4 additional top 10 finishes and 3 additional finishes outside the top 10.

In 2010 I finished 1st in points with 2 wins, 9 additional top 5 finishes, 5 additional top 10 finishes and 3 additional finishes outside the top 10..
