Background

I first started to get into racing when my step dad took me to the NHRA SummerNationals in Topeka, KS. I saw several junior dragsters and the idea of being in such a car and competing fascinated me. My step dad purchased my first car from a soon to be friendly rival at the end of the 2009 season so that I could race in the 2010 season. It took me about half of the year to get my first trophy. After that small victory I knew I wanted to continue with racing for a long time. I now have over 40 trophies in the past three racing seasons and am determined to collect more along the way.

Goals

In this next year of racing I hope to become better at wheel racing, but more just an all-around better racer. I have my strengths and weaknesses with some things (focus, repetition, using my practice tree, etc.) as most racers do and hope to improve on some of them this year.

I would also like to win at Western Conference Finals as well as the Division 5 race.
