Background

In 2011 I began going to trackdays at Heartland Park, Topeka, KS. That same year I attended the Star Racing School taught by Jason Pridmore. I progressed quickly in the sport. In 2012 I obtained my race license through the Midwest Cafe Racing Association. I was only able to race half of the season in 2012 but finished 4th overall in points with 2 podium finishes in 6 races. I took my competitiveness to CCS Midwest Region for 2013 and did well making my way to 2nd in points before a season ending crash in September 2013.

Highlights

I began riding motorcycles on the street in 2010. In 2011 I bought my first supersport and learned how to ride it proficiently on the street. In late 2011 I began attending trackdays and showed a natural affinity for progressing. Since then I have studied technique and physics of what allows the motorcycle to do what is necessary to win races. I obtained my race license after only completing 2 track days and a race school. I several podium finishes as well as a win in CCS Amateur Middleweight Supersport at Road America.

Goals

I plan to attend as many events as finances dictate. I plan on racing the Midwest Cafe Racing Association series as well as the Championship Cup Series.
