Tell us about your racing background and what brought you into the Lucas Oil Regional Series: What brought me into the Lucas Oil Regional Series is that my dad owns a business called Xtreme Machine and Fabrication. His business builds Prolites, Mod Karts, RZR 1000 and RZR 170s. I was looking for a way to race that we could afford.

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series: It all started when I was two years old doing donuts on my 50cc Quad.  I was so small I couldn’t even touch the floor guards. When I was five I got my first trophy kart and raced the Podium Series out at Lake Elsinore before they even had the main track they have today.

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I went to my first short course race at Chula Vista in 2006 when CORR was still around. My dad’s company Fabtech was one of the series sponsors and sponsored Rick Huseman for a few years so after that point we were always at the races scraping mud off of Rick’s Pro4!

Tell us about your racing background and how you ended up at the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I’ve always enjoyed motorsports, motocross in particular. I started racing at the age of 8. My dad has a friend that used to race Pro-Buggy for Lucas Oil so I was always at the races spectating. At age 11 I started racing the JR2 karts and have loved it ever since.

Tell us about your racing background and how you ended up at the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I started racing karts on pavement when I was 5 years old and started racing Outlaw karts on dirt when I was 13. My dad accidentally bought a midget on Ebay (at least that is what he told my mom), so at 14 I started racing it around Northern California. At 16 we sold the midget and bought a 360 Sprint Car.

Tell us about your racing background and how you ended up at the Lucas Oil Regional Series: Since I was little I’ve always wanted to race a Jr2 , but the funds weren’t there. I tried everything to get myself in to a Jr2, but my tactics didn’t work. When I was a little older I started going to the races with Ron Carter and helping him.

How did you start racing? I always wanted to be a race truck driver since I was a little boy. Growing up I always had a passion for cars and trucks, that's all I grew up around. As a kid, I loved going to the Off Road Expo which to me was my version of Disneyland. One day when I was sixteen, my father and I found a truck on the Internet in Arizona that was almost Regional Series ready.
