FAVORITES


Favorite Track

Dover - because its the fastest I've been on and I've won there twice.

Favorite Racing Moment

Winning at Iowa Speedway in 2011. It was at my home track and in front of all of my friends and family. When I won, the fans went crazy so it was a very special win.

Least Favorite Racing Moment

I would have to say Iowa Speedway in 2010. I was leading the race with ten to go and was spun. I live 30 minutes from the track and had so many friends and family there who never get to see me compete. It would have been the best feeling in the world to get a win in front of them all.
