MY STORY


I am an all american teen. I am 17 and I enjoy playing sports with friends, but I feel most at home at the drag strip. I am a high school Senior, member of NHRA and The National Honors Society at Basehor-Linwood High School. Basehor is a small town just outside of Kansas City, it is about 45 minutes east of Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka and about 10 minutes from Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Ks. 
​​
As a third generation drag racer, I began racing in a custom flamed, orange Motivational Tubing junior dragster. I competed at 8 years old in the 8-9 year old division at Heartland Park, Topeka and was named the 2010 Points Champion. Fast forward to 2017 at age 16, and I started my NHRA sportsman career racing a '68 Camaro in Super Stock.

At my first Division 5 race in 2018, at my home track, Heartland Motorsports Park, I advanced into the finals and picked up my first career win racing against last year's Division 5 Champion, Brett Speer. 

The event win in Great Bend, Ks. at the SRCA Dragstrip in Sept. 2018 secured my spot in the 2019 NHRA JEGS AllStars — The race-within-a-race program for NHRA's Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series competitors.
Contested at the Route 66 NHRA Nationals in Chicago, the event is reserved for 100 of NHRA's ­sportsman racers. 

When my sportsman career started in 2018, I set two goals for myself; (1) to win the Division 5 points championship in Super Stock, and (2) to maintain my National Honor's Society status in High School, by October, I achieved both goals. At the end of the 2018 race season, I ranked #12 in the world. The goals I set for 2019 include a repeat Division 5 championship title, keep my National Honor's Society status as a senior, and rank top 10 in the world!
