YEARS RACING: I have been racing my whole life in one way or another. Growing up in a racing family there was no way around it. I have spent 90% of my life on a dirt bike racing week in week out, getting to travel over seas and around the world racing.
With over 12 amateur championships I was able to make an easy transition into the Pro ranks, where I spent over 4 very successful years racing supercross and motocross. My last year racing was with Factory Kawasaki, where I was a full time test rider for guys like Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, and Tim Ferry and when they were injured I was the on call fill in racer.
An injury put my racing career in jeopardy but two years therapy and a conversation with Kenny Osborn changed everything. I was offered the chance to race a trophy kart for Osborn Racing at the Trophy Kart world championships. Not knowing what a trophy kart even was I watched a video and was immediately in for the race. Still had the dirt and jumping aspect but now I had a cage and four wheels.
I thought "this just might be the perfect fit for me". I was able to walk away from my first off road race with a 3rd place against some of the sports biggest names. After the race I was asked to continue to drive for the team..... 8 wins, 10 podiums and one short year later I am again a professional racer, this time on four wheels.
TRAINING REGIMENT: Eating well and spending as much time on my dirt bike and mountain bike as possible.
QUOTE: I am not going out there to drive around, I am going out there to win, and I will do whatever it takes.
