Background

I started riding track days back in 2000 and really loved the experience. As I progressed into A group (AKA - fast guys) I began to enjoy more and more the head to head riding with others on the track. At the end of the session/day there was a huge let-down. There are no rewards for skilled riding in track days other than amongst your friends. I also deeply wanted to compete against other riders with measurable results (i.e. lap times, places).

I joined the AFM in 2007 and started competing at our local tracks. I have been hooked ever since. This year may be my last in Formula II as the two-stroke class is getting smaller and smaller every year but I will still make an effort to do well and make every race.

I've been with Suomy helmets since I started racing and its the only helmet I wear. I am hoping we can continue our relationship in 2012.

Highlights

2007 AFM 4th Overall – Formula Singles
2009 AFM 12th Overall, Top Novice – Formula II
2010 AFM 8th Overall – Formula II
2011 AFM 6th Overall – Formula II
2012 AFM 6th Overall – Formula II

Goals

Finish top five in AFM Formula II, no crashes, no DNF's. I'd like to drop my lap times a few seconds and sharpen my racing skills for a shot at class championship in the next year or two.
