Background

I first started off racing in a 1991 Honda Civic, I quickly rose to the fastest driver and most competitive racer on the track, i got fastest qualifying times at every single race, constantly breaking track record throughout practice during these days. Now I am beginning to race Thunder Roadsters, at the beginning of the season i will have my 6th ever race in Thunder Roadsters, already I have a heat race win (the video is posted) and I've competed in the fast heat where I actually kept up with the fastest drivers at our local track.

Highlights

I went on my first year losing every race learning to race, I went out my second year and won a heat race and a main event. My past year I went out and won 75-85% of all of my races and finished 2nd in points by a mere 19 points next year i will either be jumping up into a Legend car or a Thunder Roadster and will be racing both circle and road courses. When racing last season in the Thunder Roadster class I raced only 5 races, I started with my fastest qualifying time at 18.2 seconds (1.3 seconds slower than track record) i then won a heat race in my 4th race of the season, finally during the last race I competed in the fast heat along side the fastest drivers at our local track, i had two laps timed at 16.9 and the rest of my times were under 17.3 keeping right up with the absolute quickest drivers at the track, hopefully i pick up this season where i let off

Goals

Continue racing Thunder Roadsters and going to more tracks to compete
