Hello every one just had my second inteview of 2010, I would have to thank Scott here on RacingIn.com doors just keep opening up after my first live pod cast with Scott and Happy Hour at the Track Radio and RacingIn.com here is link below on my second interview

 

 

I have loved cars all my life. I started working on VW bugs at the age of 10.  One of my 1st jobs was working at a VW shop taking apart cars.  The owner told me to rebuild a air cooled motor one day & it was the best feeling ever to hear something I had built, come to life.  I was hooked.... I learned how to drive by playing in the dune buggies and off road racing with Murl Lambert at age 12. Ive even raced  100 yard Sand Drags and Off Road at Texas off Road Racing Organization (TORRO).  I started working at a VW shop 24 years ago and today I work at the local VW dealership for the past 15 years.


My 1st season driving a Sprint Car, Geoffrey and I were advised by Billy Young the owner. Many  thanks to Billy Young Motor Sports #21 for the ride in 2008 he gave me my 1st ride in a sprint car and I will never forget it in my lifetime.  

Last season 2009 I started driving for a new owner Bob Stretch who owns Wheels America (wheelsamerica.com).  
Thanks Bob for believing in me to build and set up and drive the Wheels America Sprint car. My last race of the season was my best finish yet.


My Moto is I will Drive Anything Anytime Anywhere.....

Looking for more Help with the Wheels America #84 with Fuel and Tires for the 2014 Sprint Series of Texas will have the chance to run around 24 races this year.

10/04/14 www.cottonbowlspeedway.com Sprint Series of Texas 5th Heat, 11th A-Main What a week heck I mean month I want to thank Sebie Davis and Jason Howell for the opportunity to run their awesome motor last night, (Motor is a Beast) I think I was more worried about it than racing. I started 6th in heat race it was a scramble at the start seen a car to the right of me get huge air (Rodney) #67 so went down the track in the slime and went back a few spots, Had to get to 5th to transfer into the A-Main had one heck of a battle with Danny Merrel for the last transfer spot, placed 5th. We started the A-main 10th kinda missed the setup but it was drivable tired the top just a bit to long and went backwards, a caution came out so I tried the old catfish on the bottom and made up some ground. We placed 11th and loaded up on trailer all in one peace, after watching the video looks like would could have went up on the gear a few more notches & tighten her up some. Thanks to all my friends and family sponsor's for the help, Wheels America, Sam Pack Ford Lewisville, RolArt, Brian at Snap-On, Xtreme Powder Coating Smiley and Crew for all there hard work for the last 10 years to make sprint car racing alive for us little guys like me.
