Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series:
I became interested in racing at a pretty young age, although it was several years before I was able to act upon it. Erik Jacobus of J.E.Racing used to live down the street from my family and when he began to race the Lucas Oil Regional Circuit with an Alumi-craft Pro Buggy, I had a chance to drive it and I was hooked. I decided it was time to go out on my own, so I bought a Ford Ranger and built a mini stock. I am fortunate that my racing hobby is one that blends well with my occupation I am a Diesel Mechanic so I work on all sizes and types of motor vehicles.

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series:  I grew up going to desert races to watch my Dad and Karl Scanlan race.  I would beg my Dad to let me race but at age 7, I was too little. So he surprised me with a J1 kart.  Karl made me a track on his property to practice.  When I was 8, I did my 1st race in the J1 kart in the desert.  For a couple years, I played around in the desert with the kart.  When I was 11, I did my 1st race in the Lucas Oil Regional.

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I started off racing in the desert in 2012 we built a Polaris RZR and started racing BITD. Then shortly after that I also started racing the WORCS short course racing. In between these series I would go to the grand prix races. In 2 of the Worcs races they incorporate the Lucas track in their track and I took a liking to the track. When I had heard that Lucas had a UTV class I decided to go to a race, and from there I was hooked. Then from watching the Pro Lite class “I thought one day I’m gonna’ do that”. An opportunity came my way and I ended up with a pro lite spec truck.
