My first race was in 1988. My cousin and I bought a car together we took turns racing each weekend. I think he finished 8th or 9th and so did I. We raced at Florence Speedway in Kentucky.

First race was in 2000 at Hidden Valley Speedway in Central Pa. Started 22 and finished 16, more survival than racing but it was a blast, can't wait for 2001 season to begin
