I began racing at the age of 9. No big teams, no fancy equipment – just me and my dad having no idea what we were doing, figuring it out as we went along. That persistence earned me the championship that year, setting a track record for fastest lap, and being named Rookie of the Year.
I’m always told, “No one is going to give you anything until you give them a reason to.”
What I wanted was to race, so I gave them a reason to notice me. It wasn’t easy, but having to work hard for everything I got instilled a strong work ethic in me. With the unwavering support of my family I kept winning and EARNED national recognition for my accomplishments.
Now 16 years old, my resume includes:
• 14 National Championship Titles
• Ranked #1 of 300 in ekartngnews.com 2016 Tag Senior Driver rankings (average finish: 1.57)
• Qualified 4th in a strong field of 100 of the world’s best at the 2015 IAME X30 World Challenge in LeMans, France
• Chosen by the Chip Ganassi Racing Team’s Generation Ganassi Driver Identification Program in 2016 as one of the “Ones to Watch” in world of auto racing
I have raced go-karts, Legends, F1600 and dirt sprint cars. With every race, I adapted quickly, showing competitive versatility and coachability. I’ll be adding Late Models to my resume in the hopes of building a network of connections needed to become a team driver.
