What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?

Which time!? This race season, I was driving people back to their camp areas and we popped the biggest wheelie ever in a golf cart, it would have been world record status had Guinness books been there!

What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?

To make Hermiston Raceway the destination racetrack it use to be back in the 70s— which in turn helps the whole community.

On a personal note, my children. On a career note, the news and achievements my family and I are making for racing in the Northwest. Seeing people building race cars again and watching families make memories. All the work we put in to this, there is nothing more rewarding than that! It’s more than we could ever ask for.
