I am 18 years old and have been kart racing since I was 5. There is nothing more I love other than racing. I have loved the sport since I can remember, I grew up with toy cars like hot wheels and such, but nothing compares to driving fast and winning races. My dad just bought a Modlite (November 2014) from a friend, Austin Kuehl, to race on dirt ovals. I hope to increase my skills and experience to become the professional driver I know I can be.
June 7, 2015 - Wow! I managed to finish in 7TH PLACE last night, finally breaking into the top ten!! After dodging a few incidents (like a leaking shock and a loose control arm) and some crucial help from the sharp eyes of Chuck Kuehl, we kept the car together. On the track, I kept the car out of trouble, when I was almost collected in a rollover from the #14 car, Josh Rivera, who I was was running with. (Josh is ok, no dents. :)) A few too many yellows made the race a long one, but I prevailed and reached my goal of cracking into the top ten. Mom and Dad are extremely proud of, and impressed with my successes in my rookie year.
May 24, 2015 - Another 11th place finish. I'm still working on breaking into the top ten. I should've been there last night, but I didn't adjust to the track changes quickly enough. I'm looking forward to another chance tonight.
May 17, 2015 - Just competed with 29 Modlites last night. I placed 5th in my heat race, and raced a B Main. Finished 3rd in the B-main. Was running 9th in the A-main and gaining ground when another car spun in front of me, I had no where to go except sideways to minimize the damage. With a damaged car, I managed to pull off a 14th place finish. Looking forward to more great racing at Canyon Speedway Park next weekend.
May 9, 2015 - I just finished my best Modlite race to date, 11th out of 27 cars. I'm happy with my progress, but I am shooting for a top ten in the next and future races. I hope to be finis
