Background

I started riding Motorcycles about 4 years ago. After learning how much trouble I could get in and how unsafe it was I started track last year with RideSmart Motorcycle School. In 2012 RideSmart.info gave me the opportunity to instruct with them and am now going on 4 years with them as Staff and now Novice Racer. They are Texas's largest Motorcycles school that teaches street riders to hit the track in hopes they become our next races. I now teach novice and intermediate students basics of riding around at the track in conjunction with DPS certified instructors. I have learned so much in a short time and am constantly progressing. I have my CMRA (Central Motorcycle Racing Association) racing licence and plan to Race endurance in LW 250cc classes. We placed 7th overall againt 500 and 300 cc bikes in the Ultra Lightweight classes. We started HALFFAST GROUP and HALFFAST RACING 3 years ago to build community involvement in the Houston Area. We attend meets and shops meet and greets on a regular basis to promote our sponsors and engage the motorcycle community in safety and progression in the sport.

I really enjoy this sport, and have tons to learn.. I hope I can pick up some good support here, and learn ways I can afford this sport... I hope to take the my skill and improve, as well as hit as many races in TX and maybe even out of state...

Currently our Endurance Race team is Sponsored by RideSmart MCS and we are running or top 5 in 2014 for our

Highlights

I am an up and coming racer and we are building a race program that will assist in community involvement and bring more riders to the sport.

We also race Endurance for Light Weight bikes to help others gain entry into the CMRA by placing new riders ont he Grid.

Goals

My plans for 2013 are to win all the South Texas Races and support our Community locally. I hope to also race up north in but will be dependent on funds and primary job responsibilities mainly my work schedule.
