Brief History:

I began racing karts at the North Georgia Mini Speedway in Chatsworth, GA at the age of 4 years old. Over the next 8 years we traveling nationally all over the eastern half of the United States racing in numerous states and picked up numerous local and state races as well as a few national races. At 12 we moved up to race Legend cars and travelled to different tracks across Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee and picked up a hand full of wins in each of the states. During the summers of 2011, 2012, and 2013 I moved to Forest City, NC and worked for Jimmy Means Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide series getting to experience all aspects of fabrication, chassis setup, and pit crew duties for those three years. As asphalt racing got more expensive and tracks grew fewer and further between with dropped off car counts we made the transition to dirt late model at the age of 17. For the past 4 years we have raced crate late models at Boyd's Speedway, Cleveland Speedway, and North Georgia Speedway.
