• Current car class/number: Street Stocks (My car class actually uses the 80's General Motors Metric Monte Carlos, Buick Regals, or Cutlass Supremes. My class of cars have actually been driven years ago through cities and streets). No. 7 (Who wouldn't want a lucky car number? And it was my dad's number when he raced back in the '90s).

• Career highlight/favorite memory: The most memorable highlight of my career is when I won my very first feature race at The Red River Valley Speedway in May of 2008. I remember the hair on my neck standing up, and getting goose bumps after I had crossed the finish line.  I also remember looking at all my fans, family and friends standing up, cheering for me after I had crossed the finish line in first place.
