I have been riding and racing for 11 years, ever since I was 5 years old. I started racing a PW 50 at a local motorcross track in Newburg, PA. Outside of racing and riding quads, I am a student at Shippensburg High School were I will be a Junior in 2010-2011. I will also be a second year student at the Franklin County Career and Technology School in the Auto Repair field. I help out part time with our family owned business Performance Cycle & ATV. When not in school, I am working on my quad and getting in as much practice time as possible.
Since 2006, I have progressed from a Kawaski KFX 80, riding in the Youth class, to a 90cc Apex for two years winning the 90cc 12-15 year old Pa State and District 6 Championship in 2008. Then moving up to a 250cc Yamaha Raptor in 2009 and now in 2010 moving to the C class 16-19 at the local and GNCC levels. Racing is something that I have always wanted to do and want to do in the future. When I am asked what I want to do in life.... its become a professional GNCC Racer. After a professional career, I would like to stay with the sport and be a representative for a company with the GNCC Series.
This year I want to finish the local series out with placing in the top 3 in my class. Also I would like to finish out the GNCC series this year with a top 10 finish in my class and earning a national number. Next year I would hope to be on top of my class locally and nationally. I know it takes alot of dedication and hard work on my part and my family's.
