Bio

 

I’m 21 years old and already have over 16 years of automotive racing experience. At the age of 4 ½, I strapped into my first gasoline powered race car, a quarter midget. As I progressed through the ranks of quarter midget racing, there were numerous track records, including 2 World Records, and 14 Championships.

As I grew not only in size and age, so did my desire for racing. In early 2009 we decided to move to the next level & race a 600cc Micro Sprint Car in the 3/4 restricted division at Giant Chevrolet Raceway in Visalia, CA. This would be my and my crews’ first experience racing on dirt. We approached it as a learning & a rebuilding year. By the end of the season, I had accomplished a heat race win, a top 4 main event finish & a main event pole starting position. Proving that I could run with the best of them.

Over the next 5 years my love of racing competition and desire to win, pushed me to always give 110%, each time I was on the track. Racing at Delta Speedway in Stockton, CA for the 2013 season, was the first year racing the Multi’s (Supers) class. Winning “rookie of the year” and the track championship with 6 main event wins, then capped off the season by winning the biggest race held at Delta Speedway, the “Turkey Bowl”. 2014 saw my crew and I a little frustrated with 3 blown clutches and 2 blown motors, and a host of troubles with the new fuel injection.

Holding my head high and always ready for the next year’s racing season to begin, once again I began to ask my family and sponsors, “I’m ready to make the move up to a full sprint car”. So for the 2015 season, I raced a 360 C.I. winged sprint car. Most races were at Kings Speedway in Hanford, CA and depending on a little racing luck and hoping for a fast learning curve, we could pick up a few additional races as the season progressed. 2016 and 2017 were up and down years with numerous engine problems once again plaguing my racing season, but I found a new love, non-wing sprint cars. 2018 found me racing only one non-winged race at Las Vegas NV where I started 13th and finished 3rd. Having another blown engine, my family struggling to keep me racing, I started driving a Micro Sprint for car owner Greg Gillespie. 2019 once again finds me in the seat of the #20 Greg Gillespie Micro Sprint.

I’m not only driven to win while on the track, I’m also driven in the classroom. I attended Reedley Community Collage where I obtained my AS degree in criminology.
