Background

I have attended and followed AMA Pro Racing events since I was 5 years old. It was around that same time I got my first motorcycle. In 2007 I did my first track day on my 2005 Yamaha R1. I was instantly hooked, bought a Yamaha R6 and got CRA road race license the following year. Now I am more involved in the sport that ever before. No only as a racer, but additionally as a vendor and experience industry professional. I have attended more AMA, MotoGP and Industry Expos events than I could ever count. At the race track we have established a reputation in the paddock of a team you can not only go to for replacement parts and advice, but also a friendly place to go hangout to share stories and experiences.

Highlights

My racing highlights include racing the Michelin Cup at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama in 2009. Additional in 2009 I was 9th overall novice in the CRA with several race wins and podium finishes. As an expert racer I have several podium finishes over the years and consistently finish among the top 5. Each and every year I continue to improve on my riding and my lap times. In a typical season I will enter and compete in over 40 races.

Goals

My goals for 2014 are to attend as many events as possible and increase our exposure and maximize our sponsor’s return, both on and off the race track.
