How did you get started in racing?
I started racing BMX and Motocross around the age of 12 and have since raced just about everything that has wheels.
What is your greatest accomplishment in racing?
I was the 2013 Young Guns World Champion, World Record Holder for the Longest Jump in a Monster Truck as well as the Top Speed of a Monster Truck (World's Fastest Monster Truck). The accomplishments are cool, but I would consider my greatest to be all the people I have met and the relationships I have built because of racing.
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
Not really. I just try to have a good meal before the show because depending on how things go and how much we tear up, it could be super late at night by the next time we get to sit down and eat!
What is your goal for the Jamborees?
First, leave the fans with a lasting impression that makes them tell their friends and come back next year. Second, either WIN or put on a show that makes my competitors "Up Their Game" and elevate the level of the show!
Is there anything else you would like 4-Wheel Jamboree fans to know?
Just to give all the teams and drivers a follow on social media and follow along and see what it takes to get these trucks down the road week after week to put on a show.
