1) How did you get started in racing and what series or tracks do you race on regularly?
I started watching my grand father and my dad race late model stock cars in the early 1990s and 2000s and just feel in love with it always had a strong feeling for racing.
2) Tell me a little about your car number and how you chose it?
my number is 27 because well honestly that was the number I wore when I played football lol
3) Who sponsors you and why are they special to you?
I don't have any at this time
4) Who has been your biggest support throughout your career?
my dad and grandfather and my fans with out them and the great fans at Bowman gray stadium I wouldn't be nowhere
5) What was tour scariest moment in racing and did it affect the way you race?
last week as most of you guys probably heard about at bowman gray but will get more into that in a bit
6) What advice would you give a young kid wanting to be a race car driver?
honestly this sounds bad but if you have to spin someone for a win might as well do it.
7) If you weren't driving a race car, what do you think you would be doing with your life?
8) What is your biggest moment in your racing career?
my first win at bowman gray when I beat my dad in the late models
9) Where do you see yourself in 10 years and what will it take to get there?
hopefully a championship and in NASCAR because I'm only 20
"Now for last week what it was coming out of the turn everyone says I held my line and he came down and I was heading back to my pits when bout five or six guys from his crew came to confront me and I felt a hit to my head and next thing I seen was people trying to grab me so I did dounuts in the pits and swing them off my car if I had to do it all again I honestly would.
Everyone at FLRN wishes him the best of luck in his career. Even in dark times, there is a light waiting out there. We will continue to follow his story.
