After racing motocross back home in Michigan, I've always had a passion for racing. I bought a street bike when i was stationed in San Diego. I rode that R1 everywhere and then I had my first track day at Willow Springs Raceway. I was instantly hooked. Months later my R1 was stolen and it was time to make a decision with the new bike. I work with a Marine who has been racing for some time now, and he steered me in the right direction. I picked up a 2008 Yamaha R6 and I had my race bike. After my first round with CVMA, I know now what I want and that is to set my mind towards amateur racing full commitment.
To progress as far as possible this year, and glean as much knowledge as possible. I've started a training regimen to knock some of the pounds off as well, and I'd like to lose 15 pounds within the next few months.
