When did you start riding quads?
I have been riding since I was 5 years old, I grew up riding trails and hanging out with friends every day. I got into racing when I was 16, back in 2006.
How did you get into ATV racing?
I went with my uncle to a local race for my first time ever, noticed that had a quad class and after watching that day I decided to try it myself and have been hooked ever since.
Why do you do it? What inspires you to keep pushing in your sport?
I love racing because it makes you push yourself to your limits and then more and the family/friends I have made at the track are irreplaceable, I have a great time every day I show up at the track. What inspires me, I just want to be the best! No matter what I’m doing whether its racing, mowing the grass, or any other activity…..I want to be the best.
What do you like about your Elka Stage 5?
I love the fact that I can pull my Stage 5’s out of the box when they arrive, stick them on my quad and they work amazing. Rd 1 at Echeconnee I literally ran a set straight from the factory and put in a top 5 ride in the Pro class! That’s how great they are and why they are by far my favorite shocks to date.
When you are not riding how do you spend your time?
I love anything outdoors especially bow hunting but I also like fishing, golfing and when I can make it a day on the lake is very relaxing and always a good time.
Plans/ Goals for this year?
My goal is to finish top 5 in the series this year along with making a few appearances on that pro podium!!
