Racing Accomplishments: I started racing go-karts at the age of 5, moving into Street Stocks at 14. I won the Meridian Speedway Street Stock Championship at the age of 15 in a car my grandpa Nash and I built over the winter. At the age of 16 I moved into a Late Model and began competing in the Rocky Mountain Challenge Series as well as Meridian Speedway when races didn’t conflict. That year I was Rookie of the Year and the only Rookie to ever win a main event in the series. At the age of 17 I was lucky enough to have Davey Hamilton loan me a 360 Winged Sprint to compete in. That season I ran a full schedule competing in the 360 Winged Sprint and a Late Model with much success. That same year I was voted “Sportsman of the Year” for the Meridian Speedway Late Model. In 2010 I was selected to compete in the first ever Richard Petty Driver’s Challenge. That was an amazing experiance and a great way to help improve my skills as a race car driver…learning from the best!! I am looking forward to a successful 2012 season!!
