Background

Started out working with an AMA team, volunteering to gain experience. Eventually I decided to use that knowledge to start my own racing career. I took a racing school under Ed Bargy at Jennings GP to gain my license, then started racing the CCS Midwest series on a Buell XB12. Enjoying some success on the Buell, I decided to move up into the ultra-competitive 600 supersport class on a Yamaha R6. Becoming acclimated to the bike has been tough, but I've finally gotten comfortable on it and have high hopes for the 2013 season!

Highlights

First weekend on the Buell I received 2 - 2nd place finishes and 2 - 3rd place finishes at a track I've never been to before. That same season I raced the Buell in Team Challenge and won the GT Lights class, lapping quite a few 600's to get there!

Goals


Compete in the full CCS Midwest Regional Championship, with 5 top 10 finishes and 2 top 5's. I'd like to fully exceed my sponsors' expectations, providing maximum exposure through Twitter, Facebook, and at the track.
