What is your typical pre-race meal?
Fruit… Whatcha got?

What is your pre-race OCD behavior?
I am a terrible procrastinator. I tend to relax for too long…then it’s 2nd call and I still need to get suited and on the bike.

What is one of your favorite racing memories?
My favorite racing memory is when I got my race license in 2009 with WERA. Me and 5 of my good friends all got our licenses on the same weekend. It was an amazing time.

What motivated you to get started racing?
COPS!!!! LAWYERS!!!! COURT COSTS!!!! TICKETS!!!
All of that is expensive when riding like an idiot on the street. I rode a little more than reckless when I started riding motorcycles. I turned to the track because of my first daughter being born. I needed a safer environment. I simply didnt respect the street back then.

Who are your Role Models?
I appreciate admirable qualities in many but I cant say that I have any true role models.
