I would like to share how I accomplished my goal of starting a Jr Late Model Development Program and running Arca Menards Series West.
A Little History
At the age of 5 years old I got the opportunity by my dad to fall his footsteps of being a race car driver, in a go kart. Winning in my very first race and running a few more from that I moved up to a Quarter Midget at the age of 6 and 7. Winning 11 out of the 12 races I did in one I knew that this is the dream I want to live. Slowly but surely I got to run at what I always thought was the big track for me the Las Vegas Bullring. At 8 I ran a Bando. It wasn’t the best years of racing in bando only winning a few races in two years. But one day on the way to the race track I was asked to run in the inaugural Jr late model series at 10 years old. Running in the series for a few years at different tracks I was able to pull off two championships and dozens of wins. Then after my Jr days I moved up to the modified series for one of my long time sponsors Bill Paddack. For that year I pulled off top 5 in points and rookie of the year. Then the next year I made the change to run back at Madera Speedway but in a pro late model. Where then I go on to winning 2 of 3 championships and winning 3 races including the biggest race of Madera year the Short Track Shootout.
I have the opportunity to move up and run the Arca Menards Series and being able to run my own Jr Development Program with my dad and the KKR team. Thank you to our new drivers and hoping to help your own kids in the future.
